An oTENTik getaway: experience camping in a new way

Are you looking for a unique camping experience in Quebec? Look no further than the oTENTik accommodations! Escape the noise and stress of everyday life and relax in peaceful surroundings, in one of the 6 waterfront units available on Darvard Island.

Located on the Richelieu River, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views and watch boats as they pass through the lock of the Saint-Ours Canal National Historic Site. With the conveniently equipped oTENTik accommodations, you can focus on the joys of camping without worrying about pitching a tent and bringing extra gear.

What makes the Saint-Ours Canal oTENTik unique?

The perfect mix of a tent and a rustic cedar A-frame cabin, these waterfront accommodations offer the best of both worlds. You can have all the comforts of a cabin, such as a furnished interior, without sacrificing the fun and adventure of camping. Plus, each unit is equipped with everything you need to cook: a barbecue as well as a kitchen corner with plates, cutlery, cups and mugs for that morning coffee on the deck! Save yourself the hassle of having to pack it all. All you need to bring is your sleeping bags, pillows, and food.

Starting at 96$/night before taxes, these accommodations are perfect for families, couples, or solo travelers looking to escape in nature. Come experience the cozy and rustic feel of Parks Canada’s oTENTik units for a relaxing trip. Play one of the many table and/or outdoor games available at the Superintendent’s House, take in the sunshine while you picnic, bike on one of the most beautiful circuits in Montérégie and unwind in the evening around a firepit. Don’t forget the marshmallows!

Explore the area

Cross over the Saint-Ours Dam and visit the Vianney-Legendre Fishway, situated along the shores of the Richelieu River. The fishway resembles a ladder, allowing fish to climb to the other side of the dam. It was constructed to help endangered species, including eels and copper redhorse, bypass the Saint-Ours Dam and reach their breeding waters. Watch as the fish go up the Richelieu River through a window and learn about different species through interpretive panels.
