So many nice places to visit in Atlantic Canada. I am in Cape Breton - the Cabot Trail is beautiful - Broad Cove campground in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park is a nice one, clean, good sized sites. We go every year to PEI and spend a week there at New Glasgow Highlands Campground, our favourite. Gros Morne National Park is beautiful over in Newfoundland. You won't be sorry making the trip.

Well, Louisbourg isn't terribly far from the ferry, about an hour. Point of view campground is pretty nice there. That would be my pick. i have heard about people doing the beggar's banquet. they liked it...i think you dress up in period costumes like the people at the fortress do is the impression i got. i put a link to rv park review's reviews of it.

They would require a 7 -16 hour ferry ride depending on what route you take. You'll need 2 - 3 weeks in Newfoundland alone to discover what it has to offer. The other 3 Atlantic provinces, (PEI, NB and NS) are beautiful as well, but doesn't offer the uniqueness of Newfoundland and its great tourist attraction, the people. Another FRF member IGGY done the route last year. I'm sure he will be glad to share his experiences.
This province is something to see. You will be amaze it is a WOW. Pictures do not justify the beauty of it all. Yes you should plan 3 weeks the list is to long ect. Make your ferry reservation well in advance . We are now on hour 2 ND week started from North Sydney 17 HR crossing via Argentia. Started in ST John's.work are way across to ......ST ANTHONY TO VISIT THE VIKINGS.then back to PORT AUX BACK ( FERRY) 7 hr crossing. Well worth it.

This summer was our 6th trip to Newfoundland. Every year we see new and interesting things. A stop in the Tableland is a must if you are doing Gross Morne. JT CheesemanProv Park is an excellant 1st or last night stop. Be sure to walk the Smokey Trail and check out the 2 waterfalls in the park

We're heading out to Newfoundland in Sept. Any tips for the ferry? Do you prefer a cabin or the lounge seats for the 6 (+/-) hour trip? We have 4 adults (2 mobility impaired) and one old cat, who is happy to hang out alone in the FR3.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

If you are taking the 23:45 ferry then I recommend a 4 beth cabin keep in mind they are bunk beds a 2 x 2 beth may be better for your party . During the day the general lounge is fine. Taking the 23:45 and taking a berth allows you to start the day running when you arrive in Nfld. My wife does find the cabin claustrophobic and the walls are very thin.

Great time of year to visit "The Rock". You will be impressed. When you reserve the North Sydney to Port aux Basques ferry, let them know you have people with mobility issues.

Agreed- if taking the night crossing then get a cabin (they do book up fast), if a day crossing then no reason to grab room unless 1 of your group needs to lay down due to the motion of the ocean.

Don't forget if you like dry camping then Newfoundlanders are infamous for river camping. As you drive around the province you will see shores along rivers near the highway. They often pull in there for the night or the weekend (or the summer). Lots of gravel pits too LoL

Cell coverage along the hwy is ok.. fe spots here and there where it can be spotty. Telus/Bell are the best- Rogers is only decent on the Avalon pennisula

Weather can be iffy.. brings some warmer gear just in case.

Bend302- There is a good chance you will see some leaves changing in SEP- it can vary depending where you go.
