Gros Morne KOA Kabins

Hello,

I am planning a trip to Gros Morne for July of this year. I was looking at the kabins(it kills me not to spell cabin properly) at KOA campground. The cost is $62 a day. I was wondering first, if anyone has stayed in these cabins,what their stay was like and whether it was worth the money. Are there beds? A bathroom?Second, does anyone have any suggestions for reasonably priced accommodations. Gros Morne is only a part of our trip, therefore we are trying to save money wherever we can. Thanks for any tips!

I've not stayed in the Kabins, but looking at the website

http://www.grosmorne.com/koa/kabins.html

It says "There are no washroom/shower or kitchen facilities in these units. These facilities are located nearby. Please don't forget your linens."

The picture shows beds with a thin mattress but no blankets or pillows....So you will have to bring all of these with you...

I've been having a look at the Newfoundland Tourist Board website for accommodation. There is nowhere quite as cheap as this, although all the accommodation listed does have its own bathroom, and all bed linen and towels are provided...

Rocky Harbour is probably a bit more expensive than other places.

Some of the accommodation I pulled up (in no particular order ):

Google KOA kabins all KOA's are the same cabins as its a packaged cabin to build from what I know its bascaily a roof over your head with bunk beds and a small front deck thats it, no linens,no shower or kitchen just beds you would be at least 5-8 km from any resturants in rocky harbour or norris point check the price again as it probaly will be 62 x13% Hst and then add probaly another 3% gros morne co-op tax.

KOA Kabins are camping cabins for people who want to camp in a structure versus a tent. They are not equipped with much of anything. A camp bed (bunk beds) with thin mattresses. Perhaps a table and a few chairs. No cooking or bathroom facilities. Unless you have your own sleeping bags and pillows with you and want to "rough it" I'd suggest a B&B or motel.

You will find that hotel prices in NL are quite high for what you get. The tourist season is short and it seems that people make their money when they can. I have found pricing for hotels to be quite high compared to what I was used to in Ontario and some of the hotels we have stayed at in NL have not been very well maintained.

Have a look at the Norris Point Hostel. It's located in the old Cottage Hospital, which is a great heritage site.
