Unfortunately, we were there without a guide - which is something you can do without but would certainly be amore complete visit. Extraordinary geological traces and the history of earth's crust are in front of you like an open book at Green Point. For the...More

We stayed three nights at Green Point campground in mid-July and were completely happy with our stay. The campsite was as expected: clean, level and with a fire pit. What really set this campground apart was the exceptional shower and bathroom facilities and group cooking/wash...More

We wouldn't have thought to stop except that the Gros Morne map suggested it was one of the 3 best phot ops. Beautiful!

Rock formations are great! Views from the top of the cliff are amazing! My kids enjoyed their time here.

Green Point should not be missed. It is a rare chance to see 500 million year old rock structures. Stop here around 10:30 for a guided and informative walk through this amazing coastal site.

Well worth a slight detour off the road, then a walk down to the beach, to see an amazing array of strata and, especially, the boundary between the Ordovician and the Cambrian.

Don’t miss this spot! If you’ve seen the Tablelands, this is another perfect geological example of all the amazingness that Newfoundland has to offer. The guided tours are highly recommended to provide context and give an understanding about the significance. They are rather frequent and...More

This, too, was not on our original list of things to see but boy were we glad we did. Rocks millions of years old...you can see the layer upon layer of rocks which tell the timelines. One of the highlights of our 14 day adventure.
