We spent a week in August in one of the cottages in Rocky Harbour with our 3 young children and we all had a blast. I won't write about how beautiful Rocky Harbour or Gros Morne is as most have already talked about it here. So here are a few general suggestions on what to bring to Rocky Harbour based... More

Make sure you do the three km walk to Western Brook Pond and take the boat ride into the mountaings. No trip to the park would be complete without that

Newfoundland & Labrador government done a bang up job in tempting adverts. I've been wanting to visit this place for over a dozen years. It took "if you don't go now, you never will" to get me to come. We arrived Aug 16 for 4 full days in Gros Morne. Unlucky us, the weather was showers & rain for everyday... More

You can't go the NFLD and NOT see Gros Morne National Park....it is well worth the visit. Absolutely beautiful, scenery is spectacular, hiking trails, moose....really great!. Also do the Western Brook boat tour to see the rock faces, waterfalls, soaring cliffs, etc. You won't be disappointed. Knowledgeable staff who don't grovel for tips at the end of the tour like...

Our daughter lives in St. John's and we always wanted to visit the west coast of NL. We were not disappointed by Gros Morne. The scenery, hiking, food and accommodations exceeded our expectations. The weather was clear and relatively warm. Norris Point, Wedtern Brook Pond, and Cow Head all added to our experience. Further North, do not miss Arches Provincial... More

Awesome park... great scenery, great hiking trails. Recommend for those desiring a relatively easy trail/hike and spectacular views: The Tablelands and Western Brook Pond boat tour (which has a separate admission but is well worth it). For those who are more courageous, there is the hike up Gros Morne Mountain.

We spent over two weeks in Gros Morne, travelling in a fifth wheel RV. We divided our stay into three parts; southern region along Rte 431 (i.e., Trout River, Tablelands, Woody Point, and Lomond), central area along Rte 430 from the Mattie Mitchell site up to Western Brook Pond (staying in Rocky Harbour), and the northern area of Shallow Bay...

Great hikes to waterfalls and wind-blown shores, and an amazing boat ride on Western Brook Pond. The pond is actually a lake, and is the closest you will get to a fjord in North America. Great park for amateur and professional geologists.
