Butter Pot Provincial Park is a Provincial Park on the Avalon Peninsula of the island of Newfoundland, Canada. The park covers an area of approximately 28 km2 and is located on the Trans-Canada Highway about 35 km southwest of St. John's. The park is named for a prominent rounded hill (Butter Pot Hill, 303 m) inside the park boundary. Butter Pot incorporates both day-use and overnight camping facilities, and in winter months provides groomed cross-country ski trails.
Butter Pot Provincial Park is the most-visited park in the Newfoundland provincial park system. In September 2012, the park closed early for the season, as a result of extensive damage to the park roads, trails and facilities caused by Hurricane Leslie.

  • While not too far from the city, for those who are camping from outside of St. John's, it's likely a great place to setup shop, close enough to the city to make it with the drive to do some city...

  • Excellent getaway only 20 minutes from town. Many different sites suitable for everything from tents to luxury trailers. Nice and quiet for the most part, not a lot of partiers. Campsites were clean and sufficient. Bathrooms were not the cleanest or pleasantly smelling, but you really can't expect that at a campsite, especially the hottest part of the summer.
  • Rough road to enter park- some paved but mostly gravel. Comfort stations are run by generators so pick campsites with that in mind. No quiet hours posted and it was our experience that none were enforced. Small rocky unsupervised beach. Clean facilities with laundry and free showers. No ice or food on site- wood available for purchase. Water and washrooms are spread thinly throughout campsites.
