Are you located in Gaspé?
Technically yes but this question usually means ‘located in downtown Gaspé’ so the answer would be no. See, Gaspé is an enormous town, over 1000 square kilometers. We are located near Forillon National Park but 30 minutes from downtown Gaspé. If your goal is to be close to downtown Gaspé (for festivals for example), there are closer choices. If you are more interested in visiting the national park and the nearby attractions, then you are at the right place!
Can I bring my dog? (or cat, ferret, bird…)
Certainly! We however have a maximum of 2 pets per site and require that animals do not inconvenience neighbors. They must be under leash outside the RV. We expect you to pick up after them.
Do you have hot showers?
We sure do. They are clean and there is plenty of pressure and hot water. They are coin-operated (25 cents for 2 and half minutes). We even added hair dryers in our shower rooms.
Is the water in your distribution system potable?
Yes, and to be able to claim so, know that we must follow official training and do twice-monthly bacterial tests, among others.
Do you have wifi?
Yes and we are pretty mighty proud of it. We invested quite a bit for it to broadcast all through the campground. It is free and we do not limit the number of devices.
Do you have 50 Amp hookups?
No we do not. All full hookup sites have 30 Amp connection only but our electricity is quite efficient.
Do you have a beach?
By beach, some exclusively think of sand, parasols, bikinis. Therefore, we are always careful to refer to our beach more as a seashore, which evokes a more rugged coastline. Our shores are small shale pebbles, great for beach-combing and exploring. A bit of physical fitness is also required as there is a 75-step staircase to reach the shore. The sea remains quite cold (around 10 C/50 F) all through the season. Sunrises and sunsets can be pretty stunning from here.
Do you have a pool?
We do not. If this is your non-negotiable item, you will find some campgrounds in the area who have one. That being said, we do have in general a cooler climate than in major nearby cities, which lowers the swimming opportunities. Those who are looking to make it their number 1 activity could be disappointed. Instead, why not explore what makes us unique, like our hiking trails, our swimming or kayaking with seals or our whale-watching cruises?
Will I be inconvenienced by bugs? Bears? Raccoons?
Well, there are no raccoons and while bears are technically nearby, we have never seen one on the campground in 50 years. No special precaution needs to be taken with your food on your campsite but do keep it mind that the campground’s most important population (chipmunks and squirrels) will devour your bread bag in a few minutes! As for biting insects, our geography, the abundance of wind and lack of wet areas nearby puts us in the lucky position of being very rarely inconvenienced by them.
