  • In the Oka National Park you may carry his dog on a leash, which is rare enough in Quebec.Am 8 can have entrance to the Park. Dollars per person to pay, what is ok to protect the nature. For the dog bag has forgotten, hanging at the entrance. One his dog poop makes away, is a Selbstverstänlichkeit, but then there's nowhere a dustbin, what causes that the picnickers will simply leave their garbage. Beschämend.Die to wear the full dog bag all the time was not even funny. The huge number of prustenden and panting Jogger, sometimes in large groups, passing on a rush, bring also not the longed-for peace. Also, we should not forget his bug spray. I have had abundant stitches after this Spaziergang.Natur is beautiful. Ways would be on it more enjoyable without it split. Toilets at the entrance were clean.

  • Despite the fact that the Oka national park is located near Montreal, there is space for everyone, in the section of the site, the location of the campsite are well spaced from each other. The only downside are the toilet blocks that are obsolete. The beach remains the major attraction. The water quality is good, beautiful sand and the depth that is perfect for children. Remember that there are several hiking trails and paths in the Park and nearby.

  • *DO NOT GO TO OKA BEACK OR CAMPING - I READ THE BAD REVIEWS AND STILL WENT SHAME ON US**** A group 12 went camping on August 26th & 27th we initially reserved a spot close to the beach however when we...  read more »
  • About an hour west of Montreal, and two hours east of Ottawa. Friendly staff, and nice amenities. The campsite was small but adequate for our needs. The bathrooms were clean. Free WiFi in the community center near the general store. Saw plenty of wildlife. Raccoons that were bold enough to try to climb onto the picnic table while we were sitting at it. Be sure to lock your food up. I would definitely go back here next time I visit Montreal in the summer
  • Best beach in the area for a day of fun in the sun with friends or family. It's especially pleasant for kids because the beach is wide and the sand is clean (perfect for sand castles), and water is shallow and warm so they can play in the water without vests or floaties. Access is a bit pricier than other beaches in the area (SEPAQ's prices are way too steep these days), but apart from that the facilities are clean and well maintained.
  • We stayed one night at the cabin, and mostly stayed at the beach. one of the best experiences ever. The cabin was amazing, they had everything, and were very well prepared for us. We were speechless. Going back next year for sure, hopefully we can get a whole weekend then. I'd say from experience going for one night is too stressful, 2 night at least. they don't really let you book one night unless both night before and after are booked, if you run into that just pick other days, 2 nights is a must.
  • Came here with my GF by bicycle from downtown Montreal to camp for 2 nights. We had no reservation and it was super busy but the staff at the welcome lodge did everything to accommodate us nonetheless. We got a great spot, quiet and kinda retreated from other campers in the "Calvaire" area of the park. They even brought us a firepit because our site didn't have one. The park has a few nice hikes and the beach was a savior after a hike in 32°C weather. All in all a great stay! Highly recommended!
  • Lots of douchebag, l'enfer. C'est degeu
