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.Open May through October, we offer 216 sites: fulland 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 AugustA few steps from your RV or tent there’s a host of activities and sights awaiting including the Fluvarium, mini golf, the MUN Botanical Gardens and playgrounds. Interested in bird watching or stretching your legs? Pippy Park has miles of trails to explore.

Stayed here while enjoying Canada Day celebrations in downtown St John's. Great laundromat, easy dump stations. A nice selection of sites. Felt like a safe little community. No problem for pull throughs.

This campground is located in St. John's which makes it easy to access all the sites around the city. Everything is 10 minutes away. Would definitely stay here again.
