Camps touristiques La Pointe à David


When you hear the words “sandy beach,” “beautiful sunsets” and “a wide range of resort activities,” it’s impossible not to think of vacationing! The good news is that  Camps touristiques La Pointe à David promises all this and more. Located on a peninsula in the Baskatong Reservoir, it’s the Sandbanks of Quebec! 

For sport fishing, there’s walleye, pike, whitefish, lake sturgeon… and landlocked salmon, which has become more and more common in recent years. 

And fishing isn’t the only activity. Baskatong is a paradise for water sports such as sailing, kayaking, canoeing, pedal boating and even kite surfing! And for your overnight stay, choose from rooms, luxury suites, cottages or campsites. In short, as a couple, with friends or as a family, you’re all set for a memorable vacation.

Authentic and memorable fishing trips are the norm at Domaine Shannon.

Chez Rainville Outfitter

At Chez Rainville Outfitter, a family fishing trip involves a lot more than fishing. You can also enjoy the beach, take your kids to the children’s park, go biking, have fun on the beach volleyball court, go hiking, play petanque, go boating, admire the view from the lookout, or splash around in the inflatable water games. 

And when it comes to fishing, the conditions are excellent, as the outfitter is located in a quiet bay of the Baskatong Reservoir. Go in search of the walleye, pike, landlocked salmon and yellow perch that inhabit this body of water. 

When it comes to sleeping arrangements, you have plenty of choice! The outfitter offers accommodation in trailers, cottages or a motel. In addition, Camping Union has campsites in the forest or by the water, with a magnificent view of the Baskatong.
