We spent a couple of nights here as the main harbour park was full of boats.

The road can be busy but that didn’t bother us

Free spot for couple of nights, 50 min walk from Quebec City center. Squeezed between busy expressway and industrial area , expect diesel engines to wake you up in the morning. Safe, few other rigs parking overnight

We stayed 1 night, lot was full when we arrived but a spot opened up and it did the trick. Path was busy and lots of street noise, but convenient for being in the city.

Pas de toilettes. A côté de la route sur un parking. On a passé une très bonne nuit pas beaucoup de bruit. tables de picnic.

Magnifique endroit, face au fleuve, sécuritaire avec tables à pique-nique, poubelles et toilettes publiques très propres. Assez loin du boulevard pour ne pas entendre la circulation. Nuit très calme aucun bruit.

Good spot to stay for the night, but oh so damn noisy starting at the crack of dawn. Large trucks pass by constantly during the day, so don't expect to sleep in!

Nice spot for an overnight stay. Stayed two nights with some sightseeing in between. 9 or 10 others here Saturday night, but Sunday night only 2 others, one a massive 6-wheeled overland rig that was much too big for the spaces- he partially blocked a handicap spot which is kind of uncool. But nobody needed it so no harm done.
Nice walk or bike ride into old Quebec.

Bon emplacement, assez calme malgré la route a côté. il y a pas mal de places, donc on peut être plusieurs sans se gêner.

Small parking lot almost empty. We were able to park with two travel trailers. Tables and water fountain. A bit noisy, but alright for one night. Most of the people are biking around here obviously. The view is impressive when going under the bridge and along the St Lawrence. Unfortunately the park is located in the seaport, where we cannot see the river.

Beau petit stationnement presque vide à notre arrivée. Nous avons pu stationner nos deux roulottes pour la nuit. Des tables et une fontaine d'eau potable sont accessibles. Un peu bruyant, mais OK pour une nuit. Belles pistes cyclables. Paysage impressionnant en passant sous le pont et longeant le fleuve. Le stationnement est cependant situé près du port, donc pas de vue sur l'eau.

The perfect spot! Lots of other travelers, met some cool people while staying here. Good location just off the bike path. Felt very safe and at home.

It was a nice place to stay the night. You do hear traffic although it’s minimal. There is construction going on right now in the morning so be prepared to wake up before or be woken up by it. There’s a nice trail along the St Lawrence River

Still a perfect place to stay so close to oldtown... with a bike onboad ;) many thanks for the hint

This was an excellent quiet place to stay. There were a few other RVs here. We were here on the weekend so perhaps it would be noisier on weekday mornings. We easily rode our bikes into old Town and locked them up so we could explore on foot. Our 2nd day we drove up the hill and parked beside the Musee de Plaines d'Abraham for the day. It costs $9/12 hours and was well worth it as a central location to head into other areas of the city on bikes and of course wander around the plains.

This spot was super convenient and quiet at night. If you have bicycles you can ride the bike path directly behind the parking spots straight to the lower old city in less than 20 minutes at a leisurely pace. There is a rack to lock bikes and then go explore the city by foot.
We were the only vehicle staying overnight but others park to bike or walk the trail. There is a water fountain to fill smaller jugs or bottles.

parking just off the main road. free overnight, feels very safe, very quiet over night and not too far from the city.

Arrived around 9pm and was the only vehicle here. Flat, quiet, only a hum of traffic from the road and nearby construction. Recommend!

Nice little car park on the side of the road. There’s about 50 car parks here with both RVs and vans parked for the night. Lots of road works along the way but not a lot of traffic

nice place to park. had company from.other RVs, but no issue. 5km walk to the city center or a short uber ride. there are other parking lots ahead where you can park for the day while visit the city center, but they do not allow overnight so we came back to this one.

It’s just a little parking lot of the road that runs along the water. A little bit of traffic noise but lots of spots and there were at least 6 or 7 of us parked and ready to camp here tonight. Overall great spot in the city to park and sleep which was exactly what I was looking for!

Great spot in the city, about three other campers/vans joined us.

I stayed here from 08/17/21 to 08/20/21. There were many other campers here from converted vancampers to large RVs. Excellent location, although no washrooms available within walking distance. Plenty of noise due to proximity to industrial park and highway.

Love this spot!! Stay 3 nights in a row while exploring the city. Each night there were a hand full of other campers which was reassuring. It’s right next to a bike path and there is a little water fountain to fill small jugs. Quiet at night but the morning gets pretty loud.

Excellent paved parking near a bike path. Flat ride to Old Quebec in about 20 mins. Great night sleep and picnic tables nearby. / Excellent stationnement asphalté près d'une piste cyclable.

Pas la plus belle vue mais endroit pratique car à quelques minutes du centre-ville de Québec. On peut même y aller à pied par un chemin boisé (comptez au moins 45 minutes de marche). Il y a de l'eau potable à la fontaine. Et c'est calme la nuit, très peu de passage de voitures.

Don’t go on the gravel road on the other side of the railway beside the Tennis Club. We spent the night there without problem but early in the morning the tennis club manager told us that it is a private area. The spot ok for overnight parking is in the area wher you see pick nick table.

-This was during the COVID-19 pandemic so take it as you want-
The night was pretty quiet, we were only two compact crossover SUV in the parking.
A nice place to park "near" the old Quebec. Wi-Fi is ok as long as you park yourself the other side of the railway on the adjacent gravel road.

It’s not the most scenic spot but ok for a night or two. Convenient location being so close to the city. Unfortunately there aren’t any toilets nearby.

Place bien située à l’entrée de ville. À proximité d’un axe passant mais calme la nuit. Fontaine à eau dans le parc pour enfants à côté du stationnement.

great place to stay but actually there is a job site near the parking place. starting around 6am. but it was ok.
we parked on the parking place not near the tennis courts.

We stand beside the tennis courts, beyound the tracks. Very quite at night until 0540 when the greenkeeper started his buisness ...

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting the city. We crossed the rail tracks and parked on the gravel road beside the tennis courts. It was no problems at all. The port security drove passed a couple of times but didn’t stop. There was a good strain on the tracks which didn’t move so we were shielded from road noise. There was a little bit nothing to worry us. We walked into Quebec old town which took about 45 mins and got an Uber back (with shopping 🙄). We used a small supermarket on Rue Saint Jean close to junction of Saint Augustin. Shops within city wall were expensive.

Dormie une nuit durant le FEQ. À 30 minutes à pied des plaines via la belle piste cyclable qui monte. Il y a pas grand chose autour et nous n'avons pas entendu de trafic durant la nuit. Très calme. Une trentaines de places et il y avait environ 10 vannes, Westfalia, VR.

We stayed last night but on the gravel road that is just past the train tracks beside the parking lot. It's quieter there. We will be staying here for two nights at least.
This is actually a very nice location near to the heart of the city. If you're a bit of a history buff, there is a mixed-use path just kitty-corner from the parking lot that details the Battle of the Plains of Abraham as you ascend.

Great location in the heart of Quebec City. There is a gravel road behind the parking lot where we spent the night - a bit more secluded and away from the road. A little noise and light coming from the marina and one other rv parked there with us
