We spent two nights camping here. We have a tent trailer and chose a non-electric wooded site. So very glad we did as the electric sites were very close together and open.
The washrooms were clean and staff were visible and checking things constantly. Our...More
A one night tent camping stop for us. Very large sites. Large bathrooms, very clean. The park is right on the St. Lawrence and offers picnic areas, playgrounds, beach, great views of the freighters, and boat access. Short hiking trails as well. Hookups available. Very...More
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

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
