Hi wprigge: Thank you very much for the detailed tour information. We will be touring from the north so your exit information will be very helpful. It sounds like I should have allowed for more than two weeks for my Gaspesie tour.

I am going to tour around the Gaspe peninsula this summer towing a 28ft fifth wheel. Are there any grades, turns or low clearances that would be a problem?

Hi, you will enjoy it, however, Ihope that you have a very powerful truck to pull your rig, if you go as far as the Forillon Park there are very hard hill to climb.
the area is beautiful and peopkle very, very nice

Thanks Galli: I don't worry about climbing (the people behind me might) as much as going down the hill.

Hi and if I remember well, there are hills with more than 17% inclination; hoops, I forgot in my previous message, please brush your French before leaving since you are going to hit small villages where English is spoken mainly by the priest, the major and pharmacist he, he,he.
I am sure that you will enjoy your trip, the people there are very friendly.

Hi wprigge: Thanks for the info. I bought a translation booklet with helpful phrases like "I am lost".

don't worry Vtlee, French Quebecers are very friendly and between your booklet and sign you will be find.
One thong I may had, if you do go as far as the Forillon park, there are certain road with inclination up to 30 %, therefore, if you don't have a powerful truck, take your time with it.

We are back from our trip around the Gaspe Peninsula and we had a good time. The tour info posted by wprigge was very reliable and a great help. Forillon National Park is beautiful and a "must see" if you go to the peninsula. There was a major storm in December that caused damage to many roads and the shoreline in that area. Most roads have been repaired and the park is fully open and operational with the exception of the Penquille section which is open to foot travel only. The hike from Les Graves to Cap-Gaspe is easy and very nice. I have posted reviews of some of the campgrounds we stayed at in Saint Flavie, Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, Gaspe, Carlton-sur-Mer and Levis. For Land Yacht, if you are coming in from the South, the roads from Gaspe to Saint Flavie are rougher than those from New Brunswick to Gaspe. Thanks to all who posted, it was a big help.

We did all of that, and only gained 1kg from the puteen.

Hi VtLee,

Glad you enjoyed your Gaspé trip and found my hints useful. Too bad for the rowdy campers in one campground. We just got back from Prince-Edward-Island and I'll post my campground reviews shortly.

Not knowing what your tow vehicle is, that is a hard question to answer. I had no problems pulling my 28ft. fifth wheel around with my F-250.

Hi tzfardaha,

I suspect you are talking about Highway 138 when you talk about the hill past Québec City, especially the first few kilometres past Beaupré, where the road builders where of the opinion that winding your way up a hill was for sissies and the only way to go was straight up. You go from sea level to over 3 000 feet in about 12 miles.

There is nothing similar on the Gaspé Peninsula. Unless your rig is seriously underpowered you should have no problem.
