2024 MOE Summer Camping Trip – Travel/Camping Information

July 20

The 2024 MOE camping trip is to be in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland and Labrador with hiking scheduled from Sunday, July 21st to Saturday, July 27th.
Group camping is reserved at Berry Hill Campground that will accommodate 25 people.  The cost in 2023 was $6.50 per person per night.  Do not contact the Park if you plan to stay the Group Camping area, however, you must notify Phil Hardy (contact information below).  If you don’t plan to stay in the group camping you may book a motel or cabin in the community of Rocky Harbour (approx. 5km from the Campground).  These would have to be booked directly with the business.
The main thing that is different with this trip is the ferry from North Sydney, NS to Port aux Basques, NL.  There are 2 crossings daily, one daytime and one overnight.  Please study the website carefully at marineatlantic.ca.  It is suggested to take the overnight trip to allow for driving in daytime.  Please book early, even if you are not certain you can go.  The ferry appears to be free cancellation if more than 48 hours prior to trip.
If ensure you email your name, email address, phone number, arrival and departure dates as well as where you will be staying ( group camping, rustic shelter, individual camping site or other accommodation) to Phil Hardy.
