We have driven by Jacques Cartier for years but never stopped in until we read that they had some hiking trails. What a hidden Thousand Islands gem! The park is lovely, peaceful, with a river-view on many of the campsites. It has a lovely beach,...More

If you knew that you weren't suppose to swim off your site , why would you do it? Then blame the Park employees for asking you not too. I doubt very much that they yelled but politely asked you not to do it. It's a...More

In Jacques Cartier, You cant go swimming off your sight at all! I know that no state park allows it, but when someone sees you swimming they don't care. Here they yell at you and tell you that if you want to swim we must...More

We camped late in the season and it ended up being pretty cold and our site pretty wet. We didn't think we'd end up having so much fun. The views and sites are fantastic and the State Park employee Frank brought us some dry wood...More

I know this is old, but in case anyone else was wondering, no, they don't have boat rentals at the park. If you want to rent a boat, you will have to find a nearby business.
