Minister Mitchelmore Announces Launch Date of Provincial Park Season Reservation System

The Honourable Christopher Mitchelmore, Minister of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation, today announced that the Provincial Park Campsite Reservation Service will begin accepting reservations for the 2019 camping season at 7:00 a.m. NDT on Wednesday, April 24, for all provincial camping parks.

Once the reservation system is launched, the public can reserve campsites by calling toll-free 1-877-214-CAMP (2267) or visiting nlcamping.ca.

From April 16 to 23, campers are invited to visit nlcamping.ca to create or update their user profile which is required when making a reservation.

Seven provincial park campgrounds are scheduled to open for the Victoria Day weekend, while the six remaining campgrounds are scheduled to open later in May. More information can be found in the backgrounder below.

There are 32 provincial parks throughout the Newfoundland and Labrador; including:

  • 13 camping parks
  • 10 park reserves
  • Seven day use parks
  • T'Railway Provincial Park
  • Main River Waterway Provincial Park

Quote
“The provincial park network across Newfoundland and Labrador highlights the natural beauty of our province. From the salmon jumping at Sir Richard Squires, to the sand dunes at J.T Cheeseman, or the viewing icebergs at Pinware River, these parks are a great way to discover and explore our province. I encourage everyone to get out and enjoy all our provincial parks have to offer.”
Honourable Christopher Mitchelmore
Minister of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation
