Belle place tranquille du moin au mois d’octobre magnifique vue sur le fleuve

Report Check-In

Good spot to stay max 24 hrs. Very busy though.

Report Check-In

Grand quai municipal où il est permis de rester 24h. Le problème c’est que plusieurs ont décidé d’en faire leur camping. Des motorisés, des roulottes, name it. Les gens s’installent pour des semaines complètes, avec tout leur attirail et se stationnent de côté pour avoir une meilleure vue. C’est fédéral…
Le stationnement est plein à craquer. Il n’y a plus de respect pour l’espace et les autres. La ville fermera sûrement l’endroit éventuellement à cause de tous ceux qui ont des VR à 300 000$ mais qui sont trop cheaps pour se payer un camping. C’est épouvantable. Reste que l’endroit est merveilleux même s’il est gâché par ce manque de savoir-vivre enrageant.
Nous avons quitté à 21h à cause du bruit et du nombre de personnes.

Marvelous place on a large pier of gravel enough for more then 20 RV. garbage disposal. very calm with a view and little beach.

Super lieu ! Parking réservé aux VR, seule demande de la part de la ville : rester max 24h mais c’est largement suffisant ! Couché et levé de soleil magnifique !

Great place right on the st-lawrence. Guess it can get crowded during weekends. No water or fire pit, it’s just a gravel wharf but it’s quiet, big and the view is beautiful.

Beautiful RV spot and not Bush! Bit windy ;-)

Seems very popular, 20-30 other vehicles here on a Thursday in early September (after labour day). Gravel parking lot on pier right by the water. I'm assuming the views were great, but was still very foggy when I left. Sign says can stay for 24 hours.

Report Check-In

Lots of campers. Gravel parking. Free, but the parking lot belongs to the museum. Toilets and picknick tables nearby.

Report Check-In

Wonderful spot to enjoy the sunset and climb up the light house. Free parking if you patron the submarine museum. Beautiful lighthouse with buttresses. 100 years old and about 125 stairs. Also a shipwreck museum.

Report Check-In

This is definitely still a legit spot! Totally full of campers/vehicles, organized and tidy. Great option if you don’t need overnight services.

Report Check-In

STILL OPEN! 24 hours parking allowed for patrons of the museum. Quiet, lots of space. It is a gravel parking by the submarine you can visit. Great sunsets and sunrises.

Report Check-In

Great free place to rest for the night. Beautiful views all around (320 degrees). Come early to get a good spot- we came at 5pm and snatched a spot at the end of the pier squished between an RV and smaller trailer. Two things to note - there are many RVs around, and no public restroom at night (6pm to 9am). Beautiful sunset facing the pier. Sleep was good, very calm after sundown (occasional vehicles rolling in at night).

If the pier with RVs ain’t your thing, there is also at least two parking lots where you can stay overnight, also saw a few tents pitched up. As someone mentioned lineup for submarine is long but there are also installations outside for a quick tour.

Report Check-In

This place is a great spot to see the sunset. Be warned that it is packed with large motorhomes. I mean packed! If you have a small rig or van, I'd suggest you find another spot.

The place is open and many RV are parked there. We just had a lunch there, but lot of people stay overnight. Nice view, lovely for a walk. No toilet, no water on site.

Arrived at 730pm last night to find the parking lot already very full. Was able to park at other small parking lot just next to this big lot. They are still allowing RVs to park here even past July 1 when the museum is now open. Great sunset views, everyone seems to have gone to bed just after sunset so makes for a quiet evening.

Great location on the quay. No problems at all, despite many comments saying you can't park here. Signs say you can stay for 24hrs. Seems as though the museum's are closed until July 1st for anyone visiting soon. Can't find the toilets, but maybe they are inside? Great views, campsite feel with all of the other vans and RVs!

Lots of different parking lots just beside the St Laurent. The view is beautiful, it's quiet at night and the different museums are really nice. Lots of picnic tables, very clean flush toilets too. Wonderful :)

A previous reviewer is mistaken about this site. This site is OPEN to RVs for up to 24 hours if they visit one or more of the 3 sites - submarine, museum, and/or lighthouse. There were over 20 RVs parked here legally last night with room for more. See pictures of the signs attached.

Super endroit, très beau coucher de soleil, beaucoup de place, calme même s'il y a 15 autre campers, mais c'est l'occasion d'aller discuter ;)!
Du bout du quai je ne capte pas de wifi, et je n'ai pas chercher les toilettes donc je ne sais pas s'ils sont toujours en fonction.

Report Check-In

official signs for RVs and camping on the dock. it was very busy when we arrived around 8pm so better come early if you have a big RV. toilets are open from 9am to 6pm. not really wild camping cause there were so many people around but good for a stopover.

There is no problem to park here overnight. Many others stayed here together with us. It's official allowed. Nice quiet place with beautiful few on the water.
