Located on the First Nation Innu reservation on the southwest side of Les Escoumins. A very difficult campground to rate. Pros: Friendly staff, and many staff members speak English fairly well. Registration was efficient and professional. Facilities for use (pool, bike and hiking trails, laundry, bathrooms, overlook tower for whale watching, convenience store, gasoline station, landscaping) were outstanding in resort condo areas. Sewer hookup was in great position, although a bit high. Whale watching was excellent from nearby rocks; why pay for the tour boats? Belugas, dolphins, and minke whale were right up against the shoreline. Tidal pools in rocks, along with passing freighters on the Fleuve St. Laurent were fascinating. Firewood (bois) was brought around on a cart by a very friendly man. Cons: The campsites are not level, with many roots or simply uneven ground or paving. Electrical dropped to 109 volts with only the microwave running. No breaker box on the electrical. Water had a slight brownish tinge. No landscaping in campground (but elegant in all other parts of the resort). Garbage cans every 10 meters were tacky. Sites were fairly close, but not enough to cause any slideout problems. There was brief road noise along Rue Reserve when the ferry arrives or departs, but otherwise quiet. Internet was not available in campground, only at the laundry at the condos about 1 km away; you must drive there and have the password from the registration desk to access. Gate into campground is manually operated via key. You must open and close yourself. In rainy weather, it could be a pain. If rating were the entire resort, it would be a 9 or 10, but the quality of the campground (it seemed like a stepchild to the resort) lowers the rating to a 7, almost a 6. We expected a more elegant campground for the price and website promos. We would opt to stay somewhere on the coast on the next visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

The camping area is very tight for motorhomes. Neighbors are very close. Wonderful playground. Short hike to the shore. I watched many whales from the campground's observation tower- Blue whale, many belugas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
