Unusual accommodations: Giant birdhouses

Enjoy an unusual glamping experience in one of five cottages designed to resemble giant birdhouses. Build in 2016, each birdhouse was inspired by a different species of bird found in the park. Are you drawn to the quiet and elegant great grey owl or to the social bank swallow? Contact us to reserve the birdhouse that best suits your personality!

Each cottage includes: a propane stove, cooler, dishes and utensils. Sleeping bags are available for rent. Drinking water is available nearby as are dry toilets. Showers are in a separate building about 300 metres (1000 feet) away.

Camping: Fall asleep to the sound of the waves

Enjoy eco-friendly camping right near the beach along the majestic St. Lawrence River. Four seaside tent sites are available as are four RV sites. Enjoy stargazing as well as breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
