Owner description: Terra Nova National Park is a place where long fingers of the North Atlantic Ocean touch the island boreal forest of Eastern Newfoundland. Rocky headlands provide shelter from the awesome power of the open ocean. The landscape of the park varies from the rugged cliffs and sheltered inlets of the coastal region to the rolling forested hills, bogs and ponds of the inland. Cultural history abounds in the remnants of sawmills and past human cultures.

Clean sites, wondeful scenery, touch tank is fabulous at the Terra Nova Interpretation site. VERY cold water but lots of sealife( sea urchins, hermit crabs, razor clams, and cod fish, lobsters, etc.) We took the boat ride out from the Interpretation Centre and learned a few things about marine life and alos watched them feed frozen fish to the eagles.

Good though not very exciting trails, but staff were very friendly and we were even offered offered toutins and partridge berry jam at Sandy Point. Check for the migratory months for birds - there were none to see along this trail in July.

Great for folks who like the outdoors. The hiking was fun as there are many trails around the park that range from easy to difficult with durations from about an hour to overnight trips. There are lots of picnic areas and scenic views as well as forest and marine wildlife.

The park facilities are modest but there are places to eat, swim, camp, interpretation centers, gift shops, kayak/canoe rentals and boat tours among other things. There are also a number of activities ongoing throughout the summer and the near by towns offer stores, lodging, etc.

A great place to spend a few days.
