Did you know that most campgrounds in the Eastern Townships allow dogs on their sites? Here are a few places where your four-legged friends are welcome!
Since May 17, 2019, dogs are allowed in certain sectors of Quebec’s national parks. In the Eastern Townships, it’s now possible to camp with your dog in the Yamaska, Mount-Orford and Frontenac national parks.
Careful! Dogs are not allowed in the Mont-Mégantic National Park. Consult the SÉPAQ website to find the list of authorized areas.
The last weekend of each month, Mont-Ham’s regional park allows campers and hikers to bring their dogs on the mountain. A hike followed by a night’s stay in a tent sounds tempting? It’s the perfect combo for you and your hairy friend as well! Of course, your dog must be kept on a leash at all times. Look for the dates when the park trails and lodgings are accessible to dogs.
Because many consider that their dog is part of their family, they’re welcome in more than 80% of Eastern Township campgrounds. Consult the list of those that accept family pets right here.
For all the above-mentioned campgrounds, it goes without saying that to have access to a campground with your dog, is conditional to complying with the regulations of each of these places.
So, let’s go! Grab the dog and a leash and head out for a nature getaway!
