Route

Comfortably wild

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.
