Butterpot Provincial Park

Route 1

The Park is located on the Avalon Peninsula approximately 36 km southwest of St. John's along the Trans Canada Highway. The park covers an area of 2833 hectares of varied terrain and vegetation - forests, bogs, heaths and ponds. Hiking trails take you through forests and over barrens to a remarkable scenic view-point.

Even the nights are better! The stars are so bright, because the night is so dark. The Big Dipper will appear tangible and the Milky Way, literally, a sight to behold. Sleep under the stars (or in your tent or RV), but be sure to take a look around you at night.

The owls are awake all night, and by dawn the Moose, Hare, Beaver and Otters are up and browsing for breakfast by the pond. If you are leaving Newfoundland via the Argentia Ferry, you are about a one hour drive to the Marine Atlantic Ferry Terminal.
