Magnificent and diverse scenery makes Quebec an idyllic destination for a family camping trip. Whether you’re interested in scaling mountains, fishing from a canoe, hiking through meadows, swimming in cool lakes, or simply enjoying a relaxing nighttime campfire under a starry sky, you can have a wonderful camping experience in La Belle Province.
The province has 1,075 campgrounds, including those managed in national parks, Parks Canada sites, and privately-owned campgrounds. But with such an abundance of outdoor space, choosing your destination can be tough. Thankfully, help is available through the 2022 Quebec Campground Guide, which has information on every campground in the province.
This is the 60th edition of the guide, which is published annually by Camping Quebec, the association of Quebec campground operators. The bilingual guide includes information on activities and amenities, and easy-to-read pictograms of locations. Campgrounds are organized by tourist region, and campers can search each geographic region.
Search through rustic campgrounds, parks with plenty of family fun and activities, and full-service RV parks where you can stay all summer long.
Camping more popular than ever
Findings from the 2021 Canada Edition of the Kampgrounds of America (KOA) Monthly Research Report found that approximately 3.1 million households planned to go camping last year, with more than 500,000 planning to camp for the first time. This summer is gearing up to be busy, with Parks Canada and provincial campgrounds seeing a surge in reservations as restrictions ease across the country and campers look to make up missed trips.
