Enjoy camping or a cabin stay in this wildlife reserve in Matane. Spend a day or longer in the reserve and get the most out of your experience by exploring an exceptional wildlife territory where moose roam freely. The reserve is a beautiful setting in which to enjoy memorable moments with your family or friends or as a couple. It is also a perfect opportunity to treat yourself to a few days of rest and relaxation as you recharge your batteries!

Our 34 semi-serviced or serviced campsites are available from early June to early September, so outdoor lovers can enjoy the natural beauty of the wildlife reserve and live in harmony with nature. A group campsite is also available and can accommodate 10 to 20 campers.

Cabin stays
Inquire about a stay in our cabins. Each cabin is located on the edge of a lake or river and includes all the amenities you need for a comfortable and self-sufficient stay: propane gas and solar facilities (heating, lighting, hot water, stove and fridge), everything you need to prepare and serve meals, and a washroom with a shower. In some cabins, a woodstove contributes to the cosy atmosphere. Each cabin can accommodate from 2 to 8 people. You can also reserve several cabins that are near each other for a larger group.

This summer, in addition to a rowboat for exploring the waterways, your vacation cabin booking also includes a kayak and barbecue.
