Parc National du Bic, Le Bic

4.7
#1 of 17 in Parks in Bas-Saint-Laurent
Known for showcasing wildlife and landscape typical of the region, Parc National du Bic is a national park offering dozens of hiking and bicycle paths for visitors. In addition to rivers, salt marshes, and rocky hills, nearly half of the park is a coastal marine environment that plays home to hordes of harbor seals and gray seals. Take your coastal trek around midday to view the animals sunbathing lazily on the rocks. If you prefer to enjoy the scenery a little longer, several campsites around the park offer places to stay, but with only basic amenities in most cases.

  • Beautiful park by the sea, with many creeks, beaches, and then the forest away. There are many marine birds, seals, and foxes. Great views between tide and forest.

  • The Bic national park is a great Park to visit if you are in the area. It is known for the Bay which is home to wild seals. You can see them trying to bask on the rocks. Several hikes on foot or by bicycle are to do. A beautiful corner of nature, which is really worth a visit. We have also seen deer, wild foxes and other birds.

  • On the plus side: The views are spectacular. There are several amazing hikes for beginners to advanced hikers. The bike path is nice, but be aware that it is not paved. On the down side: This place is very windy so if you are camping, be sure to have enough material to hook everything in place. The camping spots in the 2 services area have lots of gravel: very hard to plant your tent. Also, there are few or no trees on most camping spots in the two service area, so no shade and strong wind.
  • The Grand Tour hike was spectacular and rugged. The terrain was challenging in some places. It would've been great to have gloves to protect our hands from the sharp shale roxks. We loved camping at the La Coulée campground.
  • Very nice place with a lot of wilderness
  • Small park yet it has a lot, and there is a lot to discover. Great place to bike, hike and relax. Great mountain and picturesque areas right next to the Saint Laurent River.
  • Lovely park. Pay attention when booking a camping spot. Ours did not have a fire place.
