NOTE: Green Point Campground has undergone a facelift. Click here for more information.

Green Point Campground is the only campground in the spectacular Long Beach Unit. Since Green Point Campground was established in 1962, people from all over the world have come to experience the beauty and tranquility it has to offer.

NEW this year are three equipped campsites!

In partnership with Mountain Equipment Co-op, Parks Canada is pleased to offer an exciting new service for visitors this year at Green Point Campground: Equipped Camping. The Equipped Campsites program is intended to make camping more convenient and give people without camping gear the chance to experience the freedom of a night under the stars without the investment.

Three Equipped Campsites have been set up for campers this summer in the walk-in sites. Campers who reserve the Equipped Campsite will be directed to a fully assembled campsite upon arrival, and enjoy the benefits of camping in a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable setting. Each Equipped Campsite consists of a 4 or 6 person tent, sleeping pads, tarp shelter, cook stove, lantern, picnic table, and fire pit. Campers supply their own bedding, kitchenware, flashlight and personal effects.
