  • National Park facilities in Bartlett Cove were not designed to accommodate visitors with private vehicles, and parking may be limited at times.
  • There is one primitive campground in the park. It is accessible on foot only.
  • There are no RV facilities (sites/dump station/hookups/etc.) or vehicle camping areas within the park.
  • Camping is not permitted in parking areas or along the park road.
