Badger is a town in north-central Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada on the Exploits River. It supplied pulp and paper for the mills in Grand Falls for many years and was famous for its large spring log drives. The town is located in the interior of the island, twenty miles west of Grand Falls in Division No. 6. Badger was incorporated as a Town on September 30, 1963.
The name of the town was taken from Badger Brook, which flows through the town and is a tributary of the Exploits River.
Right in the center of Newfoundland is a place that’s at the heart of the Newfoundland experience – Badger. It’s the place people visit to watch big game play, pass in and out of shadows cast by three rivers that surround us, and get lost in the beauty of Mother Nature.
With hills and forests that boast marked trails and waters filled with different species of fish and all types of wildlife, it’s no wonder folks from around here call it…God’s Country!
