The best camping near Ryan Premises National Historic Site guide

Overview

About

A salty scent lingers within the cluster of white, 19th century clapboard buildings of the Ryan Premises, perched on the shore of Bonavista’s historic and picturesque harbour. Hear the reminiscences of the site’s interpreters, most of whom have a personal connection to the fishing industry; marvel at the variety of artifacts in the on-site Bonavista Museum; and explore the internationally-recognized “Cod, Seals and Survivors” exhibition that tells the 500-year story of Canada’s east coast fishery.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Ryan Premises National Historic Site is between June 1 and October 6, when the site is open to the public. During these months, you can fully experience the interpretive exhibits and the beauty of the Atlantic coast. Outside of these dates, the site is closed, and the harsh Newfoundland weather can be less inviting for visitors.

Know before you go

  • Check the site's hours of operation, open from June 1 to October 6, to plan your visit accordingly.
  • Remember to bring a camera to capture the scenic views and historic structures.
  • Wear comfortable footwear for exploring the premises and the rugged coastline.
  • Contact the site in advance for any special event permits or photography sessions.
  • Keep an eye on the weather forecast, as conditions can change rapidly on the Atlantic coast.
