  • Beautiful park with a wide variety of trails accessible to everyone. No need to be an athlete! We also spent a night at the campsite and it was nice.

  • This place is so stunning and classified as natural environment. Quebec literally is one on the best places in Canada. Very clean trails and facilities. Staff is friendly and very helpful. It's really good for hiking and running. Amazing place for camping and for the family. It has very beautiful scenic sights as well. Recommended 10 outta 10
  • This park is amazing and the campsites are really nice on all areas. It was raining during my stay and we very much appreciated being able to cook on the cook top. The restroom building with the big tables and cozy atmosphere is the peak of the Des-Rosiers section.
  • Great place to camp with the family. Camping lots are neat and tidy and the washrooms are extremely clean. Many amazing trails lined with nature and beautiful flowers. Powerful waves and breathtaking views of the ocean. 10/10 would recommend.
  • Beautiful place! The trails are well maintained, and the scenery is breathtaking! We could have easily spent weeks here. Also, the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.
  • It was raining during our two day's in the park. Otherwise it should be a nice place for hiking. The scenery is beautiful, especially at Cap Bon Ami.
