Day 69: Country Inn Campground to Terra Nova National Park’s Newman Sound Campground

Today you will bike from Gander into Newman Sound Campground in the centre of Terra Nova National Park.

Terra Nova National Park is a place where the Atlantic Ocean meets the boreal forest. Terra Nova is Latin for Newfoundland. The rocky shorelines support colonies of common tern, herring gulls and bald eagles. Inland, there is boreal forest consisting of mostly black spruce and balsam fir, which hosts black bear, otter, lynx and beaver.

There are two campgrounds in Terra Nova National Park. Newman Sound is the largest while Malady Head is a quieter campground.

Although there is a grocery store off of HWY 1 before the entrance to Terra Nova National Park in Glovertown, it is far down a hill with a large climb back up to the highway.
