It's called Nature. And in the Outaouais region, there is plenty. With thousands of lakes, rivers, forests and wilderness, the Outaouais is the ideal place to set the stage and do some backcountry camping. You choose: loneliness and holy peace on a desert island in canoe camping, family-friendly caravan or luxury camping with your friends in ready-to-camp tents. For example, in Camping du Petit Lac-Simon, you can have fun with your family, go on boat or canoe, swim in the lake or in one of two pools, play volleyball or mini-putt. As for the alone on a desert island experience, well, you'll have time... alone... with yourself. In short, to clear your thoughts or to fill up on memories, there will always be a place somewhere in the Outaouais for you (and your marshmallows.)

The fun thing about the Outaouais is that you can be in the middle of nowhere by a serene lake and there's still plenty to do nearby. You can relax in an enchanting spa, eat in a refined and creative restaurant, pet cute cats while enjoying a cup of joe and go hiking all in one day. At night, you'll go back to your tent with the intention of starting over the next day!
Camping in Gatineau Park means you're close to everything. You can relax at Amerispa Spa Nordique Cantley, eat at fabulous Restaurant Muse at the Wakefield Mill, and go back to your campsites in a matter of minutes. The next day, you can enjoy the Park's many trails and spend quality time with beautiful felines at the Siberian Cat Café!
