Stephenville, Newfoundland

There is an RV park near Stephenville and additional camping facilities at nearby provincial parks.

Stephenville is at the base of a small peninsula which juts out into the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Newfoundland-Labrador's west coast. Live. Work. Grow is the name of the town initiative to expand business investment. The town is surrounded by the natural beauties of the Atlantic Ocean, lakes, rivers, forests and mountains, with all the recreational opportunities that these afford.

In 1941, this small fishing village began to grow at a rapid rate, due to the presence of an airport built by the United States and serving as a vital refuelling stop for their aircraft en route to Europe. The airport is now locally owned and operated. Signs of American influence live on in the street names, as well as some of the airport structures.

Variously called Acadian Village and Indian Head at different periods in the past, Stephenville gained its name from either of two men, both of them were named Stephen.

Stephenville also has a nearby port and is an industrial base for the economic activity of the area.
