Trek the scenic Parc National de la Gaspesie, a mountainous region with over 25 peaks. Panoramic views of the mountain range greet you on various trails throughout the unspoiled verdant landscape; watch for the second-highest peak in Québec, the Mont Jacques Cartier. The altitude created by the mountains allows for a climate that helps create a biodiverse set of plant and animal species endemic to Québec, among these woodland caribou, the last of the species in this part of the world.

  • During my road trip in Gaspésie I stopped for 2 nights in camping at Gaspésie National Park. I slept in a Huttopia tent: tent furnished and fully equipped. Perfect for travellers whose camping is not the main way to sleep. The home was perfect and I enjoyed that teams take the time to explain and answer questions with a smile. For the part of camping, amenities were clean: showers, toilets. And a washing machine and dryer corner allowed me to pause washing in the middle of my road-trip. And equipment of the tent was nickel. I also took the bedding and I can assure you that down is warm, I did get cold of the night. Knowing that I went there early October and that I did not have too much luck because I had the rain and the time cold pdt my stay. For what is the Park, you have accessible hikes for different levels, the trails are tops... and especially the landscape breathtaking. No matter what happens you will never be disappointed of the Canada national parks.

  • We spent a day in the Park and we liked. We did the mount Ernest Laforce (fairly easy) path. The view from the top is magnificent. A true 360 ° on the Park, magic. However at the top it was a wind to mighty moose... we have ever seen! The Lake to the Americans is also very nice (easy trail). In fine weather, the surrounding summits are reflected in the Lake, and it is very photogenic. Ste Anne falls, have nothing of exceptional (not necessary).

  • Came here direct from Forillon National Park which we absolutely loved. So why didn’t we like this park at all? Was it the fact that it seemed almost impossible to obtain any park information in Engli...  more »

  • Gorgeous. We stayed in Lac Cascapedia #42 with a hybrid trailer. I'd pick the same spot again. Close the bathrooms and showers and can walk to the lake. Beside a pretty creek we could hear from our site. Beautiful trails. The water taps are not drinkable but you can buy water at the gate. Showers are 2$ for 4 minutes so bring change. All the campsites were pretty level and well maintained probably the best I've seen in a park. Road up to the campground is really steep. The area is reminiscent of Jasper Alberta. We loved it here!
  • Stunningly beautiful. Lots of different trails for different fitness levels. I can't wait to go back
  • I was at the Mount Albert section. The view is very nice, the trail was made easy to climb, though I was still unable to reach the top because of my knee problem and short time. Still, you get to see a nice river and some mini water cascade.
  • Did the Mont olivine hike, 8km by car south of the visitor center is the trailhead. 8km return, in/out trail 400m elv gain. Overall great hike and walking into a moose and it's baby was great! The fact that you have to pay for a national park on Canada 150 is ridiculous!
  • Really nice park with some great hikes. We saw a caribou after summiting Mont Albert Nord.
