Less than a 1/2 hour from Old Montreal, this is a very well-kept park where many sites occupied by long-term residents have been seriously upgraded with pavers, sheds, etc. -- all done very tastefully. The wide, smooth gravel driveways give easy access to grass sites with smooth, level, gravel parking pads plenty large for our 37' MH & toad. A bonus was classy appointments including a paver patio, a barbeque, patio-style table & chairs, and a swinging chaise. Water, sewer, and electricity hookups were convenient, though we used only 30 amp. Free WiFi was reliable and fast (maybe because the park was not very full at this time of year). We didn't use the bathrooms or laundry. Service was courteous and pleasant, and included a golf-cart escort by a fellow who even helped guide us into our back-in site. Price shown is net of a 40% off-peak discount. We thought it was a very good value for the amenities offered.

This is a good location from which to explore Riviere-du-Loups and the surrounding area. The wide, paved driveways give great access to paved sites that were level and just big enough for our 37' MH and toad. Water, sewer, and electric hookups were convenient. WiFi was reliable and fast (maybe because the park was fairly empty at this time of year). The bathrooms were modern and spotless, but it took so long to get hot water that they may as well have been cold showers (again, maybe caused by low usage in the off-peak season). We did not use the laundry. Overall, we thought this park was especially clean and well cared for, and, at this price, a very good value.

With a riverfront campsite, this was a nice spot to stop for a night enroute to Quebec. The park has a community feel with a large contingent of permanent or seasonal residents. It's a large, gravel space with narrow bands of grass separating the narrow sites. Our modestly level pull-thru site was barely long enough for our 37' MH with attached toad, and had convenient 30 amp, 50 amp, water, and sewer hookups. The free WiFi was reliable but not particularly speedy. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry. Althought the attached cabins area seemed a bit long-in-the-tooth, the campground itself was clean and neat, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Given the tight lot spacing, we thought that the value was just okay at this price.

This park has a community feel with a large contingent of permanent or seasonal residents. The gravel driveways and the grass site were a bit narrow but adequate for our 37' MH and toad. Our site was fairly level and plenty long, but had a rather deep depression where everyone parks their wheels. The water, 30 amp, and sewer hookups were convenient. The park owner cheerfully reset the WiFi when I found it inoperative, and thereafter it was reliable, fast and free. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry. We appreciated their flexibility to refund our 2nd night when circumstances forced us to leave early, and felt the price was a good value for the amenities offered.

This simple grass & gravel campground was a fine base to explore the wonderful town of Lunenburg. Wide gravel driveways gave good access to a reasonably level gravel pad on a grass site. Although a bit narrow, it was quite sufficient for our 37' MH and toad. Neighbors were close, but they were all friendly. The water, 30 amp, and sewer connections were convenient. The town of Lunenburg provides free WiFi up to 300 mb, but it was only $5 to upgrade to unlimited for our week-long stay, and it was both reliable and fast. We did not use the bathrooms. With a discount of one free night for each two paid, the (CDN$31 = US$23) price seemed a good value for the amenities offered.

This park, located in a pretty area of bays and inlets, has a well established feel with large trees and mature foliage throughout. Gravel roads are easy to navigate, and sites are grass with just a bit of gravel to park on. Our site was plenty long and just wide enough for our 37' MH and toad, but sloping enough we had to drive onto 3" of blocks before leveling. The electric post was a bit scary with a large opening in the box that showed wires inside; the 30 amp outlet didn't work, but the 50 amp did; electicity went out completely on our 2nd nite there, and even after we reported the problem in the morning, remained out for the couple of hours until we left. The water and sewer hookups were convenient and effective. Free WiFi was available and worked reasonably well. The laundry was large, clean, and only $1.50 a load for each of wash and dry. Overall we liked the area and thought that the park was a pretty good value at this price.

This park touts it's beach which we didn't actually use. Unfortunately, it is a bit rough overall with narrow, bumpy, gravel roads, small, closely-spaced grass/dirt sites, quite a number of long-term residents. Fortunately, we found the 30 amp, water, and sewer hookups convenient, but the WiFi costs $6 extra per day, and would not allow connection via our router. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry. With this high price (including the extra for WiFi) and the tight site spacing, we considered the price quite high for the amenities offered.

This park is located near numerous galleries, shops, restaurants, overlooks, hiking trails, and beaches along the Cabot Trail. It provides easy access via good gravel roads to large camping loops dotted with small shade trees. Our grass site was fairly spacious for a 37' MH and toad, and the 30 amp, water, and sewer hookups were conveniently placed. There was no WiFi available. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry. We considered it an ok value for these amenities at this price, and a good base from which to explore the lovely area.

What a treat it was to look out the windshield while eating and see whales, seals, osprey, and more! The park itself is rather simple, with gravel roads and gravel pads on grass sites that were fairly level and just large enough for our 37' MH and toad. High on a rocky bluff, there were no trees or shrubs to block the wind or give privacy from other campers. The water and electric hookups were conveniently placed, but only provided 15 amp service. There was no sewer at the site, and we didn't bother with the available dump station. There was no WiFi in the park, so we went to a restaurant or sat in the car outside the library to connect. We didn't use the available bathroom and laundry facilities. A park with these amenities would be a decent buy at this price regardless where situated, but in this location--on a hilltop overlooking the bay and harbor--it is a great value. Only downsides are that the park is a bit rough overall (bumpy gravel roads, primitive signage, credit cards not accepted, etc.) and having to repeatedly take down and replace a chain across the entrance.

Pretty standard for a simple park convenient to the highway. Gravel roads and gravel pads set on grassy sites are given just a bit of character by a dotting of trees throughout. The sites are adequately sized for our 37' MH and toad, but set side-by-side with no privacy. The water, 30 amp, and sewer hookups were convenient. There was no WiFi at the sites, so everyone gathered around the registration kiosk to connect. We didn't use the bathrooms or laundry. Price seemed typical for the amenities offered.

A fairly large park in the middle of the city gave convenient access. The gravel roads were easy to navigate, and the gravel pad set on a grassy site was plenty large for our 37' MH and toad. A nice plus was solid cover of trees on three sides that gave really nice privacy on the site. The water, 30 amp, and sewer hookups were convenient, though the sewer inlet was rather high off the ground. There was no WiFi at the sites, and even when we went to the gazebo as recommended the throughput was too slow to be useful. We did not use the bathrooms. The laundry was small and totally filled with mosquitos after someone left the door open all night, but the clothes did come out clean. :) We felt it was a good value for the amenties offered at this price.

Gravel park roads were easy to navigate to our unserviced site which was a reasonably level gravel pad with plenty of space for our 37' MH and toad. The pad was surrounded by grass and a good cover of trees on three sides that gave a private feel. Some sites had WiFi, but not in our end of the loop, so we went to the camp store to connect. We did not use the bathrooms or the laundry. Note that the rating reflects our unserviced site, and would have been higher had we been on one with hookups. We considered the price a pretty good value for the amenities offered.

The RV section of this park is a big gravel parking lot with easy access for big rigs. Although some of their pull-thru sites are larger, our back-in spot felt pretty close on all sides for a 37' MH. The water, 30 amp, and sewer connections were very convenient. Free WiFi was fairly reliable, but throughput was quite slow. The cold-water-only laundry was reasonably priced. We felt it was a pretty good value for the amenities offered at this price.

It's well worth the twisty, hilly roads to get to this park which is surrounded by lovely views in every direction. The gravel loop was easy to navigate in our 37' MH, but we are glad we made a reservations because they had only one site big enough for us. The site was lovely: grassy with a gravel pad, picnic table, fire ring, and private with tall evergreens all around. Plan ahead for boondocking, as there are no hookups and the potable water faucet at the bathhouse ran very slowly when we tried to fill our tank. Though we had to ask them to turn the WiFi back on a couple of times (they shut it down to conserve power), it was otherwise very reliable and quite speedy. Bathrooms were simple and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and felt it was an outstanding value at this price.

With three strikes against, this park is out for us. Poor signage at the road caused a missed approach and a couple mile backtrack. The water on our serviced site required boiling. The advertised WiFi did not work. And the young people staffing the office seemed not to understand our concerns and were powerless to do anything about the issues. A gravel road to a large grass field with sites backing to a row of trees was easy to navigate. Our site, simply a part of the grassy field, was fairly smooth, level, plenty long, but rather narrow. We connected to the convenient 30 amp hookup, but chose not to put the contaminated water into our rig. There was no sewer on our site, so we used the convenient dump station. The WiFi never worked. The bathrooms and showers were adequate. We did not use the available laundry facilities. The price was fairly low at this park, but it still didn't feel like a very good value given the obvious shortcomings. We hope that this is a short-term situation and that others have a better experience here in the future.
