St. John’s to Burgeo?

Can anyone tell me what the driving time is between St. John’s and Burgeo, I have been wanting to go to Sandbanks provincial park to do some camping for a few years now, and I’m trying to plan. Is it possible to do that drive in a day? How many hours does it take with minimal bathroom break stops?
Any advice or help would be great. Thanks.

The service at restaurants in St. John’s is hands down the worst I have ever encountered on a regular basis. Does nobody refill coffee and pop? Do servers not know how to say sorry when they f*#$ up? Shit list includes: Cora’s, Sun Sushi, Gypsy Tea Room, and any fast food place Rant by A. […]

    I can drive to Deer Lake from St. John’s in about 6 hours, going just over the speed limit and 1 bathroom break.

    I’ve never driven to Burgeo but just asked my niece (she drives there often) and she said it takes about 3 hours.

    So yes it it doable in a day but a lot of driving.

    I used to routinely drive st. John’s to Stephenville, in 7 hours. That is with only 1 stop in bishop’s falls for gas and Timmies. I’d bring my lunch with me and eat while I drove. From Stephenville access road to Burgeo is about another 2 hours. So definitely possible in a single day if you get on the road early.

    9.5 hours according to this at an average speed of 94 km/h

    I’m the original poster, thanks for the input everyone, I think I’m going to do it, was thinking it may be a day of driving and stopping overnight, but if I get up early enough, I should be there by evening for sure, I’ll pack a lunch!! Cheers

    have a blast! the actual road trip there is usually one of the best parts of the trip! the drive home however, usually sucks :-)
