“Our goal has always been to offer the best to the campers who visit us,” explained the president and co-owner of the enclosure, D. Thomas Gagnon. We are finally coming out of the pandemic, which will allow us to offer the maximum to the campers who will trust us. »
Note that in addition to campsites, the site also offers stays in luxury chalets and cabins.
“If we trust the reservations for campers and seasonal travelers, as for cabins and cabins, the season will be as strong, if not better, than the summer of 2021. Honestly, we had some concerns with the opening of borders. »
For this specialist, the opening of borders will change things, but in both directions.
“Probably more people from Quebec will go abroad, but, conversely, more people from outside will come to Quebec. It is certain that gasoline prices will influence the balance and that people will change certain habits, but I am confident. »
However, he noted that many fans, unlike last year, are booking less in advance.
“We feel a lot of uncertainty from people who don’t want to book too soon. In 2021, before the season officially opened, reservations were already full. This season we are getting back to normal with spots available for every month of the season. On the other hand, for chalets and cabins, the level of reservations is as high as last year. »
This specialist is perfectly aware that with the lifting of sanitary measures, people know that they can now travel everywhere more easily.
Given its location, this campsite can offer you various opportunities to visit very interesting places in Bas-Saint-Laurent.
“We are an easily accessible destination, two and a half hours from Quebec. There is no longer room for seasonal workers and for travelers, we can say that 50% of our sites are reserved. I think this season people will come to us for longer stays. They will take the opportunity to visit the attractions of the region. People will be able to go to Rimouski to visit the maritime museum and the Onondaga submarine. »
“In Trois-Pistoles, cruises to Île aux Basques are very popular. They provide a better understanding of the history surrounding the presence of these people who were there before Jacques-Cartier arrived. »
“Very close to here, we have the Parc du Mont Saint-Mathieu, where people can go hiking or mountain biking. The lakeside beach is available. This season we will be able to restart our activities such as theme weekends. Really, a stay with us allows you to experience many different things. »
