    Under the terms of the Federal Provincial Agreement Parks Canada is committed to providing Camping Services and a Day Use Area at Lomond in Gros Morne National Park of Canada.
    Lomond Campground and Day Use Area are located on the South side of Gros Morne National Park of Canada.  From this site Parks Canada provides camping and day use services to the visitor.

Parks Canada is currently looking to external sources to provide this service offer for the operating seasons of 2014, 2015 and 2016 beginning Victoria Day Weekend and ending Thanksgiving Day Weekend (inclusive) for each of the years.   
    Bidders must pass all mandatory requirements: proof from a financial institution stating they are in good standing; proof of a site visit in the form of signed site certificate issued by the park; minimum of 5 years experience operating a campground and engaging with the public; and bidders must provide (for an individual) name, street address, telephone number and fax number (if available); or (for a company) company name, street address, telephone number and fax number (if available), company signing officers and titles, as well as the name of representative for the submission with his/her street address, telephone number and fax number (if available).
