“Superbe parc, camping is less super”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Beautiful views and scenery, walking the tidal floors and the islands is great, even with kids. Easy trails and not too long. You can see seals 200 feet away as they bask in the sun, many many types of waterfowl and other birds. If there is no wind, kayaking is a must (a little dear for the guided tour, but worth the $60 in my opinion.

Just don't camp here, or do so with earplugs. As others have said, traffic from the main road, then every other night trains go through around 1am and 2am...

“Nice stay if you're deaf”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

The park is a great place for bike riding. But camping in the Macreuse section of the park is a deceiving experience. The camping is adjacent to the provincial highway where trucks make a lot of noise (first, slowing down the steep hill then climbing up the next one) ALL NIGHT LONG. No trees, no shadow.

“Absolutely do it!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

What a fantastic treat - watch for the signs to the entrance of this place off of 132! Best hike which is easy for the entire family is the water front hike about 6km round trip. Great views all around and a lovely history of the family owned once upon a time property. Excellent for children and photographers. Tea house FAB!!, get the tea and a pastry- the chocolate is local from the chocolateur in Rimouski - pastries were sublime - esp the cherry custard. Beautiful all around just loved it!

“Lovely stop”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

It was raining that day, so we did not rent bikes as we wanted, but walked around for a couple of hours. We recommend the place: we saw a few seals laying on their rocks. We walked around Ile des Amours, which was nice as well.
Beware of aggressive mosquitos!

“CUTE & QUAINT”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

This ain't Banff or Yoho Park ... Todo. It's OK; but not all that spectacular. The RV Sites aren't worth the $45 OVN Fees. No shade or much privacy. This is what you are gonna get, when Enviro Freaks design a site. Heads in the swamp!

I see this as Walmartitis ... treat your customers like crap ... & they will come back for more. I suggest you take your camping business to the private sites nearby & day visit Parc du Bic; as others advise in this website.

I found the OVN Traffic noise didn't really bother me. Very nice washrooms; but why only 1 toilet in men's? Don't like the sensor taps. Nice modern dish wash station.
