Camping in the great outdoors in the heart of the City! No wonder the Pippy Park Campgrounds and Trailer Park is so popular with both visitors and locals.

Campground is open from Mid May to Mid Oct weather permitting, we offer 216 sites: full, semi, and unserviced sites are on private treed lots; additional full-service sites are located in an open meadow setting.

The campgrounds are located on Nagles Place, minutes away from the Trans Canada Highway; take exit 46 and follow the signs. We strongly recommend making reservations during the months of July and August.

A few steps from your RV or tent there’s a host of activities and sights awaiting including the Fluvarium, the MUN Botanical Gardens and playgrounds. Interested in bird watching or stretching your legs? Pippy Park has miles of trails to explore. And if you’re camping with us during our Canada Day celebrations, take part in our sponsored Bike Rodeo event.

Domestic pets are permitted in Pippy Park Campgrounds.  Pets must always be on a leash and are not allowed to roam.  Pets should not be left outside unattended for long periods of time when you are away from your site.

Although some people feel that their pet is a part of the family, they can disturb other campers, damage trails and create potential for problems with other wildlife.  Owners must always keep them quiet and under control. 

Campers should take anything left behind from their pet, such as food scraps, bones, toys or waste. Failure to clean up after your pet may result in fines.
