About Us

Located on picturesque Thorburn Lake at the border of Eastern and Central Newfoundland, The Lakeside at Thorburn is a 4-Season resort. Surrounded by amazing landscape and beautiful scenery, The Lakeside offers an opportunity for visitors to enjoy the great Newfoundland outdoors.  Newfoundland and Labrador is a province rich in culture and overflowing with great people and fun. The Lakeside is owned and operated by a Newfoundland family. They all live at the resort and are involved in planning, development, day-to-day operations, and guest experiences. The Lakeside is their home and they want every guest to feel it is their home away from home. The family has a great love for the outdoors and the many wonders the province of Newfoundland and Labrador has to offer. They are pleased to share their knowledge and experiences and to help their guests create memories of their own.

Stay . Relax


For those who like a little extra comfort, we offer accommodations in a 9-room renovated motel with efficiency rooms, standard rooms, and many amenities. Guests preferring the outdoors are offered a 100-site campground with serviced and water only sites. The park has a comfort station with paid showers and laundry facilities for our guests to use. We also have a cook house, recreation room and convenience store.


Looking for some relaxation or romance? Soak in our hut tub, lounge on the beach, take a stroll or take the canoe out on the lake. Ask about our special Romance Package.



At The Lakeside we are all about play. Actually, we love it! The adventures awaiting you will entertain guests of all ages. Those with a need for speed will have a blast driving go-karts, snowmobiling or tube riding and water skiing on scenic Thorburn Lake. Younger children will enjoy wiling away their time at two playgrounds and participating in craft and outdoor activities. Those who enjoy a leisurely pace may lounge on the sandy beach, or explore the lake in a canoe, kayak, rowboat or pedal boat – all available for rent. The resort’s two enclosed pools ensure a day of fun can’t even get rained out while vacationing here.
