I can't wait to return with my family. Two highlights for me - the hike up to the observation tower is a must do! I also took a kayak tour to see the seals. Beautiful.

We stayed 3 nights in Gaspe, which gave us about 2 full and 1 half days to see this park and the area around it. Unfortunately we had some rainy overcast weather for part of that time and did not see and do everything we wanted. However, it was still a beautiful area. This park is small but has several...

Normally I would give this Park and excellent, but when we were there they were working on the roads and it was a bit of a mess. At times we were not sure whether we were going the correct way to reach the trails we wanted to walk. Due to time constraints aggravated by the construction, we ended up just... More

The walkway in the Penouille section was a nice walk. The hike to Land's End requires a hike that is mostly boring; there is a big hill just before you get there, so need to be in really good shape to make that last trek. Cap Bon Ami view point is definitely worth it. It was the best part of... More

Well, we had to cut this tour short due to rain. It was cold and I didn't know that this trail followed the waterway. I couldn't really look up and see anything as I had to be aware of tree roots and bear poop. Going with a tour, I didn't get time to stop for photos. If you are a... More

The hike we took was somewhat challenging, but the views along the way were amazing ! At the end of the long hike was Land's End. Upon seeing the incredible scenery, all the huffing and puffing was quickly forgotten. Pay this park a visit when you're in the Gaspe area !

Beautiful hike on a really well maintained trail. We had a lovely day in the park, too bad it was so foggy we could hardly see anything, but still so worth the time!

Wonderful scenery, really nice hikes, not too strenuous, lovely beaches. This is our second trip to this park, we spent several days in the park, hiking, and really enjoyed it. It is a unique area and shouldn't be missed.

The scenery was breath taking, the camp sites were large and felt private, the bathrooms were always clean. One night we could hears the wolves howling and the hiking was great. We also enjoyed the pool although it's very expensive , I suggest if you plan on going swimming to go when it opens in the morning and have lunch... More
