Driving to site was awkward as the road is narrow, then splits to allow access to loops on left and right of a creek that runs the length of campground. Each road is the only way in and out of the loops, so it's awkward when driving with your trailer to your site and another guest is leaving at the same time. Speedbumps are way too big and are difficult to navigate. Sites are average KOA sites.

The service is where the problem is. First off, there was major road reconstruction during our stay, one lane was closed and there was an automated green/red light with a 3-minute wait each way. When it's finally your turn to go, the road is just plain awful. I realize it's not KOA's fault but, they could post a notice on their website, or with their reservation email, anything to warn campers to come in from the other direction. We had a car accident when visiting Quebec City, I needed a 8-inch long piece of duct tape to hold my door shut and keep the rain out. When I asked for it at the front desk, I was told they don't give anything out, and I could buy some decorative tape from their store (10$). On Monday morning, we're having breakfast on the picnic table, and this staff is mowing the grass on our site around the picnic table... while we're eating. When I told him to please come back later, he said he's on a schedule. There are only 2 garbage bins on site, both were overflowing badly by Sunday evening, and even worse when we checked out on Tuesday. There is a creek that runs the length of the campground. It's not fenced or secured in any way, and there is about 12 inches of stagnant putrid water in it. The smell is awful, the bugs are having a blast, and it's extremely dangerous for children. There a 2 playgrounds and a pool on site. Rules are absolutely not enforced by staff. Got in an argument with another parent, in front of staff, regarding their kid's behavior and almost injuring my kids. Staff did nothing and just walked away. We will not return. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Quebec City is magnificent. Be sure to visit it's historic fortifications. Parking can be difficult and expensive, consider parking in Levis and taking the ferry to Quebec City.

Be sure to visit Ile d'Orleans, just a few kilometers outside Quebec City. Numerous food/wine discoveries and beautiful scenic route.

We stayed in this park to take advantage of the Quebec City Tour. The tour bus picked us up at the front of the campground by the Office. Unfortunately our site was located near the back of the campground. It was a very long walk uphill to get to there. It would not have been a problem except I have a bad knee and it made for a hard walk.

There was a person coming around delivering fire wood to the sites if you wanted any. We thought this was a nice added feature. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Motorhome.

We have used this campground a few times. It is always good.

The sites are reasonably placed, but it is very popular in the summer. This is good place for kids, so you have to be careful when driving around the site, as there are a few places where they can surprise you. Security is good, cleanliness is good. Sites are gravel at grade level with some having a concrete patio. All rig sizes can be handled.

WiFi is weak and needs to be upgraded. We were there when it wasn't crowded, but still had difficulty staying on.

Overall, excellent campsite for Quebec City and the area. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Quebec City is limitless.

Don't drive in. Go to Levis, park there, and take the ferry over. You will not regret doing this!

Also consider Montmerency falls not free, and the closer waterfall just on the other side of the highway from the campsite. Great walk with the dog! Drive there and park, it's free!

Also tour Isle d'orleans. Go left after the bridge to the island (most people go right) lovely tour to pick up cider, wine and arts and crafts. Stop off at the maritime park on the other side.

Many of the spots were flooded during our visit, we had to locate our travel trailer in such a way that we could enter and exit without being in deep puddles. They made no effort to put down any gravel in the drives or pads while we were there. There was little room to even let the dog out witout her getting wet or muddy. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a large park, typical of most KOAs with play area and swimming pool. Sites are gravel, level, and long enough for most size rigs. Only a few sites have 50 amp, so if you require it, you'll want to make a reservation. There are premium sites for an extra fee which have a paved patio area and round picnic table rather than grass and a normal picnic table. Site J7 was long enough for our 40' MH and car parked in the front. We had neighbors on all sides and still had plenty of room for all slides and awnings. The park makes a good base for exploring Old Quebec City. We appreciated that several of the office staff spoke English and could help with translating those parts of the camp booklet that were in French. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a large campground with some paved, some gravel roads - not too wide but okay for navigating our 44' rig. The pads are gravel and level with large grassy areas between sites, including a picnic table and fire pit. Some premium sites have a concrete patio. There are limited 50 amp sites, so be sure to reserve a site if you require 50 amp. All the utilities worked well. There are a few large trees, so satellite reception will depend on the position of your dish - we were fine. There is free wifi with several boosters around the park, but it worked for us intermittently. While we did not use the amenities, the campground has a very nice playground and pool. The campground is very near the Autoroad and very convenient to visiting Quebec City. We would definitely stay here in the future if we are in the area. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shuttle to Quebec City; discount when tour was also purchased. Go to Levi, park and get the ferry across to Quebec City to visit the lower part of city; one can then take the funicular up to the main part of town.

I can't say enough good things about this place. If I ever visit Quebec City again, I will absolutely stay in this park. From the super friendly staff members to the security and cleanliness of the park, there were no disappointments. We camped there with our two kids, 10 and 16, and we were only a 20 minute drive into Old Quebec City, and only 5 minutes from other restaurants and shops. I used the laundry facilities, and they were reasonably priced and very clean. The Internet was super fast, and that is probably attributed to the fact that you can't stream shows on YouTube and Netflix. However, I love that concept. It keeps the Internet running smoothly for everyone. I can't say that I ever really enjoy showering in campgrounds, but I can say that for this place. They had nice music playing in all of the bathrooms, store, and laundry areas, and I truly felt like I was on vacation the whole time I was there, even while doing laundry. It's not like a state park with tons of scenery, but that didn't matter to us in the least. And oh! They had an awesome park (very clean) with a jumping pillow, and they didn't mind our entire family (adults included) making memories with our kids all jumping at the same time. I can't say enough about the friendly staff. They spoke fluent English (shame on us for not knowing more French), and one night one of the ladies even ordered our Thai take out for us. We had a perfect experience here, and if I could double the stars, I would! We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You must try poutine at Chez Ashton and Thai food from Thaizone (they will deliver right to your campsite if requested), and while in Quebec City, make sure you have maple taffy pops and crepes! And get poutine again every chance you get! And smell the Canadian money! It truly smells like maple syrup!!

This is a better-than-average KOA with spots that have reasonable width, although they aren't spacious by any means. The pull-throughs were easy to get in and out of even with all the neighboring sites full. There are a limited number of 50A sites so make a reservation if you want one. There is gated security access to the park. We were able to get DirecTV access although we had to move the MH a bit to get clear of the trees. The park's wifi was great, when it worked. But it was erratic and we eventually switched to our Rogers/Fido modem. One important driving tip if you're coming from the east on Highway 20. Even though Exit 311 is the recommended one to use, you have to make a rather difficult lane change to get across two lanes of traffic entering the freeway from the bridge to Quebec. It turns out that the next exit, 305, puts you out on Chemain Olivier which is the road the KOA is on. Just turn right coming off the highway and the campground is will be on your left about 4km up the road. It's a lot safer and a lot easier on your nerves. If you've never been to old Quebec, there's no reason to spend your money on the expensive tours which the park would like to sell you. Just drive east on highway 20 and follow the signs to the ferry at Levi. You can park your car for $10 and the fare for seniors was $3 each and the ferry lets you off right in the old city. The ferry runs every 30 minutes all day. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Motorhome.

Stopped for a night while heading through Quebec. It is located close to the Hwy # 20, but is shielded from road noise. Check-in was quick and they spoke English. The grounds are long and narrow and only 1 single fairly narrow road doubles as an entry and exit, so passing an opposing vehicle is challenging, especially on tight corners. Our site and others around us was fairly short, being insufficient to park the truck in front of the coach (41' 5'er). They are also fairly tight and we had our neighbour's water pipe in the middle of the grass just outside the door. Services were good quality, Wifi was reasonable. Interior roads were gravel and reasonable condition. No pet area that we could find. Departure was a challenge with trucks parked everywhere. Doesn't help that their signs are only in French. Way over priced for the quality of the sites. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is on the outskirts of Quebec. It is a typical KOA campground with smaller sites that are close together and lots of kids. We needed to run the electric under the unit to get a 30 amp, plug but water and sewer were on the correct side. We had a spot that was near/under a tree and that made it a pleasant place. Staff was efficient and courteous, offering helpful hints and tips. The W-iFi was terrible. Unreliable and spotty at best. Also beware, there is only one English speaking radio station (PBS) and no English speaking TV. Bring lots of CDs if you are so inclined. Quebec itself was very nice. We found the folks friendly and pleasant to deal with. Dining out at a good restaurant is very expensive but then again you get what you pay for. Fuel prices are also up there so plan your routes carefully. We wouldn't hesitate returning if the occasion called for it. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground has 2 levels the upper level has the premium sites with 50 amp. It is also close to the freeway and the noisier. The premium area had cement and grass sitting area, the pad was rock. The Wi-Fi was one of the fastest we have seen. The utilities where well placed on most sites but not on ours it worked out. The campground is close to Quebec cite and well placed for seeing the area. Would stay here again. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate includes tax and value card discount. Site was level and services were all okay, but sewer connection was at an extended length for our unit, but was workable. Well maintained park with friendly bilingual staff who automatically speak english to you when they hear you talking to your spouse. Was a busy long weekend so we did not try the Wi-Fi instead using our Bell stick which worked great. Have stayed here several times and will return when next in area. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
