Enjoy your first camping experience, as a couple, a family or a group, at the Parc-nature du Cap-Saint-Jacques. Get away from it all without leaving the city.

Five sites await you

The park has five sites that can accommodate two adults or a family of four (with 1 or 2 children). You need to bring your own tent. 

There is also a large site for organized groups of up to 36 people. Campers stay in a prospector tent provided by the park. 

The sites are built on wooden platforms and are near each other. No services (water or electricity) are available, but each site has a picnic table. A communal fire ring is available for all campers. 

The sites are not accessible by vehicle. Carts are available to move supplies.

The nearby service centre provides access to restrooms, showers and a common space for cooking and washing dishes.

Free activities for all

Campers can enjoy many free activities: Kayaking and canoeing, forest rallies, visits to the wetlands interpretation centre, volleyball, listening to tales and legends around a campfire, and more.

Costs between June 23 and September 3

Family sites (two to four people): $60 (taxes included)

The cost for groups varies depending on the number and age of the visitors and if support is required.

The cost also includes access to the Cap-Saint-Jacques beach.
