The park is gorgeous. We went swimming in one of the designated ponds for swimming and enjoyed it. We visited the Aquarium at Norris Point which we loved. We also really enjoyed the Explorer programme for kids at the Visitors Centre. We tried to go to a campfire at Lobster Cove but could not find our way. There were signs... More

This is a wonderful park in a great province. The scenery all around is stunning and it still holds on to some local charms. Hike as much as you can, see all the park has to offer. There are lots of options for marine activities as well. It is a very feasible drive from St. John's (about 6 hours) and... More

I had wanted to see the park for a lot of years, and I finally had a chance to see a small part of it on my trip to Newfoundland. I wanted to go and see the Western Brook Pond mostly, and I'm glad I went. From what I had read, the walk from the parking lot was only a... More

The landscapes throughout the park, from the hiking trails to the highways, were spectacular. All the trails were well marked, with ample parking. The Tablelands was a personal highlight; seeing the earth's mantle on the surface was like viewing a different planet.

Lots to see and do. Very scenic with plenty of moose and caribou to see. Small villages on way to St. Anthony are cool to see.

Didn't get to all the trails but got a good taste for what was possible. Beautiful scenery, we caught the spring wildflower bloom, and fairly decent weather. We didn't go to the top of Gros Morne Mountain (according to the ranger it was closed until after July 1) but the hike just to get to the base was a pretty... More

Beautiful National Park not to be missed but take a couple of days to go there. This is a very large National Park full of beautiful scenery and hundreds of hiking trails from beginner to expert. The trails are from a couple kms to a couple of days hiking expeditions. You can go solo, or go on a guided hiking... More
