There are other campgrounds within driving distance of this one, both on and off the Cabot Trail. I checked those out on my way. I was considering wandering out to Bay St Lawrence on a day excursion off of the Cabot Trail...maybe make it to Meat Cove.
I was so pleased that I kept driving to Jumping Mouse. Wow. Stay here for a night, or more because you won't want to leave, and make an excursion up the coast to Meat Cove for lunch at their canteen. Beautiful Drive...gravel road. And, as with the previous campgrounds I checked out on my way to Bay St Lawrence, I was glad to have my tent pitched that night at Jumping Mouse. The campsites are great and the views are ridiculous. The hillside campsites, the picture postcard working harbor, the little food co-op in St Margaret Village for supplies, the views from the road to Meat Cove. You'll realize after your trip that you have an inordinate number of photos from your visit to Bay St Lawrence.
