  • Description

    Description

    Welcome to the camping, a rustic campground by the St. Lawrence river and located at the eastern tip of Île d’Orléans in the middle of the forest. The campsite offers a unique nature experience in the region.
    The rustic pitches are close to the water, the possibility of swimming in the river and the chance to explore the strike of the St. Lawrence.
    We welcome tourists on rustic camping sites and accommodation will soon be built. We also offer guided activities such as sea kayaking and cycling.

    Being a curious person, appreciating nature and community living, you'll fall in love with this place!

    The Ile d'Orleans is 67 km / 50 mi of vineyards and farms, historical architecture and a creative art scene.
    Amazing scenery, hiking paths in the forest and the St.Lawrence River for swimming or water sports!
    There is a little theatre as well as several art galleries and some small museums.
    I do have maps and provide tons of information - impossible to get bored!

    When the bikes are not rented, you can cycle around for free.
    We work in a wide network of local partners and I can organise for free tastings and discounted activities.

    Quebec City is only 40 km away and easy to reach on your days off: There's a bus that can pick you up at the campgroung once a day, bringing you down town and back. And the city is just beautiful: European architecture, a filled agenda of events all year around, a lively foodies' scene and maple syrup all over ;)
    It's aloso possible to give you a ride when we go to the city.

    The island is not a party place. Some volunteers spend their evenings or days off in Quebec City partying. But without your own car, you rely on a bus that does not run during night time. I'd say that if you feel the urgent need to be in a city almost every day, you may consider volunteering in a city.
