Camping… nature-inspired therapy
Camping is undeniably a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, savour a different pace of life, enjoy amazing experiences and activities, and get together with family or friends in an environment where nature has a strong, even therapeutic, effect.
A question of perspective
Those who are attracted to sunsets, panoramas, and photography excursions will find the Camping de Compton ideal. It puts everything into perspective. At Parc d’environnement naturel de Sutton, at an altitude of 840 metres, you’ll have a bird’s eye vista of four summits and four mountain lakes, and a spectacular view of the region.
A rustic experience
Sutton’s Au Diable Vert campground offers rustic cabins at an altitude of over 1000 feet as well as some 30 camping sites. If accommodations in the woods appeal to you, you’ll enjoy the rustic but comfortable wooden teepees at Aux Tipis de la Rivière Sauvage on the shores of the river at Saint-Romain, a perfect spot for contemplation.
A little luxury
Domaine des Cantons in Saint-Étienne-de-Bolton has top-quality facilities and services including brick and stone fireplaces, a tennis court, pool, body of water, etc.
On lake shores
Unable to imagine camping without swimming in a lake? Many of our campgrounds have access to a lake: Camping du Lac Magog, Camping Leroux (Lac d’Argent), Camping Les Berges du Lac (Lake Aylmer), Camping Normand (Lake Stukely), Camping Piopolis (Lake Megantic), Camping Plage McKenzie (Grand Lac Brompton), Camping Rustique Therrien (Lake Drolet), etc.
The Camping Baie-des-Sables campground at Lac-Mégantic offers two camping options: cabin rentals or camping under a tent. With cycling trails, a children’s playground, a beach, bike and boat rentals, and an Arbre en Arbre aerial adventure trail, there’s something to keep everyone in the family entertained. The same is true at Camping de la Gorge de Coaticook, where many activities are featured, such as fishing, horseback riding, swimming in the pool, and hiking.
In the Parc national du Mont-Mégantic’s Observatory Sector, rustic camping is accessible only by hiking three kilometres from the reception centre into the heart of the first international dark sky reserve. A new camping area has been developed in the Franceville Sector, featuring 47 sites (20 with two services) accessible by car and providing access to the trails in this sector (12 km). In Parc national de Frontenac, tent-trailer camping and Huttopia tents are the two camping options available. The same choice is offered at Parc national de la Yamaska where camping equipment may be rented. Parc national du Mont-Orford has two campgrounds, one at Lake Fraser and the other at Lake Stukely.
Immersed in nature
Les Côteaux Missisquoi in Saint-Étienne-de-Bolton is a preserved natural environment ideal for camping enthusiasts. Whether you choose an eco-lodge or a yurt, you’ll enjoy this exceptional site, perfect for bird-watching.
