Parc National du Bic, Le Bic

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.

  • Wonderful, beautiful place. Great maintenance. Celebration of Nature. Hutopias a great experience. Friendly bilingual staff.
  • It would be a very nice place to visit but they don't want you there like most of the place managed government . They have no respect for their clients. The seal police told us that we were so terrible because we crossed the invisible line by some feet. But they placed few sign post only in French to mark this line. Then we go to visit the farm, they told us that the parking lot is full and we have to go to the second parking lot which is about 1 km from their. It's quite far when you have very young kids.
  • In a province surrounded by English speakers, there was not one word of English. Front check-in - French only. Discovery Center - French speaker only at desk. Interesting looking film and exhibits - all only in French. At a restored cabin filled with interesting looking exhibits - all only in French. Was not participating in the Canada 150 Anniv where entrance fee was waived. Instead, $16 was tacked onto the camping fee for each night we stayed. Btw - electric campsites were next to a loud and busy highway. One star because the hiking trails were awesome.
  • 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.
  • Compact and beautiful NP. Hikes seem to be accessible for most. Bike paths gravel and rougher at times so must pay attention but never had any fishtailing. Very good front desk at the easternmost entrance.
