Site Description: Pinware River Provincial Park is a 68 hectare park located on route 510, approximately 32 km southwest from Red Bay. A ferry crosses from St. Barbe on the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland to southern Labrador approximately 53 km south of the park. Opened in 1974, the park covers diverse terrain and vegetation. Sites border the ocean beach dunes. Fifteen of the sites are in short very dense evergreen trees, 7 sites are pull-throughs on gravel between the access road and the ocean. The vegetation is generally low and wind-bent evergreens with some deciduous. The nearby beach is sandy. Trouting is exceptional in Pinware River and adjacent rivers, lakes, and ponds. Salmon are abundant and the success rate is high. Restrictions apply to both trout and salmon, so anglers should consult with the park staff before trying their luck. Pinware Park has a beautiful 1.2 km hiking trail which leads to a viewpoint overlooking the peaceful and tranquil town of Pinware, the estuary, and the captivating Pinware River. Rubber footwear and hiking boots are recommended to traverse the entire length of this trail.

Driving Directions: Located on highway 510, at Pinware.
