Campgrounds - Carbonear

Carbonear is one of the oldest towns in North America, having been first mentioned by Fishing Admirals in 1550, it has a rich cultural history which includes pirates, battles, a princess and a prosperous fishery.

As you enter the town, you can see Carbonear Island, the site of a number of battles, located at the mouth of the harbour. In 1812 Mr. H. C. Watts requested three guns to protect the town from American privateers. Two of the guns can be seen today on Harbour Rock Hill.
