Video Tour


The campsite has partnered up with an environmentally-friendly shellfish gathering company that lead groups out picking on the local beaches. Tours of the fish auction and a seaweed tasting discovery session are also available. The local beaches – Petite Plage and Gatseau Plage – are both within easy cycling range and are relatively well sign posted from the campsite. It's a nice route through the forest too – far nicer than driving. Be aware of strong currents around Gatseau Plage when swimming in summer.

Food & Drink

The snack wagon on site serves excellent homemade pizzas, along with a host of other snacks and drinks best enjoyed out on the terrace. It's only open over the May public holidays and through July and August. Outside of those times there are still plenty of great eateries in the nearby harbour towns – the best spots to go for fresh seafood.
