  • We arrived a little late to take full advantage. We were still able to walk on the path along the beach and it was very nice. We have witnessed a great sunset.

  • This beautiful park, Peninsula North of Lac Saint Jean, is to visit without fail. You can camp there or on camp sites, but especially for ready-to-camp. This formula is perfect for those who come from far away and do not have their hardware, just to provide a sleeping bag and its provisions. The tents are far from each other, it is not obstructed by neighbors who are, however, very nice. Starting from the campsite, the discovery of the place is by bike or on foot. There is a site of observation of the Beavers, protected species in this place. My husband ran into a Moose at the bend of a path. Educational signs explain the flora and fauna, there is among other things a bog and carnivorous plants. Swimming in the Lake in summer, possibility to barbecue on the beach for those camping there or near the tents. An extremely exotic dream holiday...

  • We loved the concept of ready to camp in a Huttopia tent. We went to our site by bike (bikes and bike rental trailers). The Park is very large and very wild. Beautiful beaches, lots of blueberries! A very large bike path. In short, a very nice family time!

  • Awesome place! Good for families with kids. Playground at the beach. You need to know how to ride a bike because some tents are far as 3km or more.
  • This place is amazing. It is well maintained and great facilities all round. If you bring you own bike you will save quite a bit on bike rentals. You get a free bike or hand pulled trailer for the length of your stay, so moving equipment (and small children) around is a breeze, stay for longer, it's worth it.
  • perfect place to enjoy your summer with family.
  • Located around 100 Kms west of the Fjord of Saguenay, National Park of Pointe-Taillon is also an epitome of beauty and unique in its own way. This National Park does not have any mountain but have 20 Kms of bike and walking path. So, it is perfect for bikers. I went with friends last year when we had rented a Huttopia tent. This type of tent has a fully -equipped kitchen with a small refrigerator that can accommodate max 5 people. Each tent is located far from the other in such a way as to provide privacy to everyone. Each tent comes with a fireplace and 4 chairs to seat and relax outside where you could get to listen waves of Lake Saint-Jean. The moment you reach the parking area you would simply say "WOW!!!" by looking at the beautiful beach. On the beach they have couple of volleyball courts and some benches to relax. The only downfall of this park was the location of rents and the facility to use washrooms. Our tent was located 3 Kms away from the main Administration area. The only place you get water is in administration area for using toilets. So, in case of the emergency you either use wash room near to your tent (with no water!!!!) OR walk all the way to the administration area if you need water. However, if you can manage this, it is worth visiting the National Park. Have good time!!!
  • It was part of my Saint Jean lake tour, and I can say that it was the best part of my trip, it is a wildlife reserve and it is well maintained. Perfect for both, biking and hiking.
