Camping

Massif du Sud regional park offers 36 campsites located in forested areas, many of them accessible with vehicles. The beauty of the landscape, the tranquility of the surroundings and the almost non-existent biting insects all make these campsites a peaceful environment.

Located in the heart of the park and its vast network of hiking and biking trails, each campsite is surrounded by trees creating intimacy from its neighbouring sites and counts with the proximity of water (stream, river or pools).

For a small recreational vehicle (30 feet or less, including towing vehicle), a tent with vehicle access or a more rustic option within walking distance of the visitor center, you are sure to find something for your needs in our camping areas!

Each campsite is equipped with :

  • Groomed site to set up the tent;
  • Picnic table;
  • Fire pit with a cooking grill (except for the Versant area).

A dry toilet is located nearby each site. Regular toilets and showers are located in the visitor center and Dejardins pavilion.
Firewood is available for sale at the visitor center.

Late arrivals:

If you arrive after hours, use the door at the back of the information center. In the grey box on your right as you enter, you will be able to retrieve the envelope with your name on it containing all the information and elements necessary for your stay.

If the index is yellow (high), orange (very high) and red (extreme), it is prohibited to light a fire.
