Northern Light Inn RV Park

(click for map to Northern Light Inn RV Park in L’Anse au Clair)

When you get off the Labrador ferry at Blanc Sablon, follow the road up the hill to Highway 138. Turn right (east) and follow 138 to the Labrador border. The highway number changes to Route 510, which is also the Trans Labrador Highway. Just across the border, you’ll drive down a steep hill into L’Anse au Clair. The Northern Light Inn is on your right and the campground is across the highway on your left. Pull into the campground and walk across the road to the Inn to check in.

It’s a gravel park with 3-way hook-ups. The 30 amp sites are back-in, the 50 amp sites are drive-thru. It’s not a pretty park, but you do have a nice view of the harbour. The washroom and showers building is quite new. They have WiFi, but it did not work very well. There is a good cell phone signal.

The campground is about 15 minutes from the ferry terminal in Blanc Sablon, QC. You can actually watch the ferry coming and going from your trailer.

There are quite a few hydro workers that use the campground. One morning we were awakened by a chopper that was picking up workers. It landed about 100 ft from the trailer.

L’Anse au Clair Attractions & Services:

L’Anse au Clair has a restaurant at the Northern Light Inn. There is a Robin’s Donuts next to the campground where you can get coffee or lunch. The convenience store is connected to the Robin’s. Take some time and check out the Home Hardware across the road from the campground. You’ll be amazed at the inventory they carry for such a small community. They helped us out with a couple of items we needed to fix on the trailer.

For groceries, you’ll probably drive over to Blanc Sablon which has a couple of large grocery stores. In the summer, Blanc Sablon stays on Atlantic Standard Time. There’s an hour and a half time difference. If you don’t remember until 6:00 PM that you ran out of something, it’s no problem, because it’s 4:30 PM in Blanc Sablon.

L’Anse au Clair has a beautiful beach and the Jersey Trail. It’s a perfect base to visit L’Anse-au-Loup, Point Amour and Forteau. You can also explore the Lower North Shore area of Quebec, which is also a beautiful area with lots to see. The only way to drive to this part of Quebec is to come through Newfoundland or Labrador.
