Less than a 1/2 hour from Old Quebec, 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. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Motorhome.

Very quiet park. Too quiet for us. Mostly permanent/owners residents but their sites are super clean, for most. Beside the pool and a "home style spa" there is nothing to do. I have not seen any activities going on during the weekend. Not much for the kids either. Wi-fi was excellent. No cable but many tv stations with antenna. Sites that did not belong to residents needs tender loving care. Grass was long (to seeds!). Showers were ok but not impressive for a resort, very little water pressure. Travelers sites are very very near each other. I could see the inside of our neighbours easily during his meal time. So we had to shut our blinds to keep some privacy. They ate outside and were on our site due to space nearness. Site was level on gravel, very little grass, more like weeds. Not that many trees in the travelers.
The pool area has no shade at all. So it can get pretty hot unless you find a regular chair to sit under the mini roof of the gym area. A few umbrellas would be welcomed for those who cannot tolerate sun for too long.
Each site had a swing chair, nice real patio set and nice fire place with grill.
I saw wood bundles at 9$. That is a lot in comparision to other places we go to.
Staff was very very nice, so were the residents we talked to. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Motorhome.

What a delightful and hospitable place. As American traveling in French-speaking Quebec we were treated with a fair amount of disdain in the Montreal area but not at this RV resort. Staff is bilingual and go out of their way to make sure their guests are accommodated. We needed to make a reservation at another CG further north (no English spoken on the distant CG's recording machine) and the local folks were more than pleased to make the reservation for me.
The sites are fairly level gravel, with utilities close by and convenient. Each site has a patio made of beautiful pavers, a glass-topped patio table with chairs and a lovely matching swing plus a bar-b-que. The pool was well used, the gym and hot tub looked like there wasn't much use.
There are many permanent residents who take exceptional care of their yards. A gorgeous place to live.
I agree with previous posters - worth the money. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Fifth Wheel.

We took the Grayline Bus tour of Montreal - not worth it.

A large commercial campground with very new, modern facilities. Excellent roads, campsites, utilities, a little bit out of town in the farmland, but very nice. Pretty expensive, but absolutely no problems - we even had a covered porch swing, and a wrought iron outside dining table and chairs. A large community-room building holds games areas, library, dining facilities and large wrap-around porch for rally groups, church services, family reunions, etc. A very nice place to stay while visiting Montreal. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Fifth Wheel.
Park was a good choice for exploring Montreal and the surrounding area. The sites were not huge, but plenty large enough with landscaping between sites, many with shade. It was also nice to have the paver patio and nice table/chairs, glider and fire pit. Wi-Fi worked well at the site and although there wasn't cable, we were able to receive several good stations with our antenna. Very quiet. The office staff was also very helpful and nice. There were many permanent sites, but they were very nicely maintained. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Motorhome.
Utilities are placed in the right place and work well. Sites are a little small but have a nice patio, fire pit and glider. Montreal is approx. 20 minutes away. WIFI worked well in the mid week but on the weekend it was hard to get on and if you did it dropped you. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Motorhome.
All the previous ratings are high for a reason, this is a great park. The only minor negative is the lack of cable and even that is not bad because the off-air reception is pretty good. You get a mix of English and Frenh speaking stations. (DirecTV dish settings are Az 233, El 31) Also can't say much about the surrounding scenery as the park is in the middle of flat farmland. Everything else about this place is top notch. My DW said they even have a workout room but I didn't go there because I'm enrolled in the Fitness Protection Program. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Motorhome.
Park is just beautiful. It is mainly a park for seasonals but they do have some very nice transient spaces. Each space has a paved patio with table, chairs, swing and a fire pit. Sites are gravel, level and adequate in length. Most spaces have good room between them. Seasonal spaces are kept up very nicely as is the entire park. Buildings (except for office) and pool all look very new. Trees on property may hinder satellite reception and no cable is provided. Wi-Fi is free but not reliable and very slow most of the time. Park is out in farmland so noise is not an issue. Very peaceful yet you can see Montreal in the distance, about 20 miles away. I would have given it a 10 if the spaces were a little wider and the Wi-Fi was better. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the best commercial camp grounds that I have stayed in. The sites are nicely layed out with grass surrounding graveled parking, a concrete pad to step out onto from one's rig and an adjacent paving stone patio. The patio is furnished with a modern table, soft-seat chairs and a swing for three adults. The thoughtfulness extends to small lights to make the entrance to sites, that do not produce sky shine. Many sites have shade. WiFi was variable and not solid during high-use times. Many sites are occupied by seasonal users / owners on "premium" sites, with about 35 set aside for transients. Travel time to downtown Montreal is a reasonable 15 to 20 minutes (avoid rush hours in the city.) There is an excellent train museum nearby, easy to miss if one is thinking Montreal. Very pleasantly situated amongst quiet fields. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Travel Trailer.
Great campground. Roads getting there were under repair from the freeway but it was no problem. The campground is excellent! Hosts escorted us to our site. Office staff was helpful and very professional. Nice store with lots of amenities. Beautiful pool, campsites are level with pavers, swing, fireplace, and table with 4 chairs. Very nice! The roads were gravel but were excellent! No potholes and grass was all mowed and in great shape beautiful flowers all around. The pool is a real plus and has a lot of room. One of the very best campgrounds we have visited. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was that it didn't have a scenic view. But we would definitely revisit if we are in the area. The cost was worth every penny! We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Motorhome.

This is an outstanding campground. Our site was a pull-through that was level with 50 amp full hookup and long enough for both our RV and towed vehicle. The site included a pave stone patio, patio table and chairs, a swing, and a fireplace. The campground was well maintained and the personnel very pleasant. It is located south of Montreal and is about a 30 minute drive to downtown. This is a first class campground. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Motorhome.
It is easy to see why this park had a Trailer Life rating as the number 1 park in Canada. Each site has a concrete fire pit, concrete block patio, outdoor patio set as the table including a swing. The roads are a compacted crushed rock which looks nice and is not dusty as the 8 kph speed limit is followed by all in the park. The park has a lot of seasonal sites which are very well maintained and include water features etc. The only negative comments would be the shower stall drains overflow onto the washroom floor which makes it very slippery. The Wi-Fi seems a bit flaky and for $5 you would expect great performance. Rate is with GS discount. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great RV Park if you’re visiting the Montreal Area. It is a gorgeous park, each site has a patio table and chairs and a garden swing. I highly recommend this park, it was a great stay. We camped at Camping la Cle des Champs in a Motorhome.
