This site was chosen by the US Military in 1941 as well as 10 other locations in Newfoundland.
The area wasn't occupied until 1943. The original site consisted of a large
ammo bunker, underground gun battery and 2 large underground rooms. The
site was deactivated after WWII but was reused during the cold war as the
CPS-5 Radar site in the 1950's. Right now there is a fairly big building
from the Radar site there which has a caved in roof. The gun battery has the
metal hatch removed so you can climb down in there and see where the gun was
located and check out the hundreds of shotgun shells that litter the floor.
The battery is on the edge of a huge cliff (maybe 500ft?) so becareful not to
slip and die.
The big bunker has had the door blasted off so you can do inside and check it out.
It's empty of course but most of these bunkers in other areas are always locked up.
The two underground rooms have had dirt poured into the entrances but you can
sqeeze your way in (not sure what's in there yet). During our next trip we're
taking shovels to dig out the entrance to the rooms.
