Getting There -- Terra Nova is located on the Trans-Canada Highway. It's about 233km (145 miles, or 2 1/2 hours' driving) from St. John's, about 612km (380 miles -- perhaps 7 1/2 hours' driving) from Port aux Basques.

Visitor Information -- The Visitor Centre (tel. 709/533-2801) at the Salton's Brook Day-Use Area, about 5km (3 miles) north of the Newman Sound campground, is your information pickup point. It's open daily from mid-May through mid-October. (Both campgrounds in the park also have small kiosks for registration, stocked with much less information and without the great exhibits the visitor center has.)

Fees -- A park entry fee is required of all visitors, even those just overnighting at a park campground. Fees are C$5.80 per day adults, C$4.90 seniors, C$2.90 children 6 to 16, and C$15 families. Annual passes are available for about C$29 per adult or C$74 per family.
