Channel-Port Aux Basques, Newfoundland

Campgrounds and RV parks are available along the highway north of Channel-Port Aux Basques.

Channel-Port Aux Basques is handy from the mainland via a 6-hour ferry trip and is located on the south western tip of the island. The town name was given by the Basque fishermen in the 1500s, and this bit of history makes Channel one of the oldest settlements in Newfoundland.

About 20 minutes away is the St. Andrews Na Creige Golf Course, with panoramic views of the Long Range Mountains and Little Cordroy River.

Transportation, particularly the railway and the fishing industries have played and still do play a large part in the development of Channel-Port Aux Basques and both of these are featured at the Gulf Museum on Main Street.

The harbour is naturally ice-free which makes it a natural choice for ships and visitors from the mainland, as well as the local fishing vessels. Although the supply of fish is still rich and varied, fishermen have become less active recently, with a view to rebuilding the fish stocks for future generations.
