Gaspésie National Park - Worth the trip?

Hi!

I am heading on an eastern Canadian road trip in early September with a few friends. I thought I had everything planned out until I stumbled upon some really beautiful pictures of Gaspésie National Park, and now we may expand our trip a few days. We would be coming from either the Tadoussac area or Quebec City, and I believe the park is about 8+ hours from Tadoussac...is it worth 8 or more hours each way in the car, a ferry, the extra lodging costs, etc?

Also, is the area better for hiking or kayaking? We were going to kayak and whale watch in the Tadoussac area and then go hiking and camping in Gaspésie and visit Percé Rock and the Marcel Gagnon statues.

If you like nature and hiking, the Parc de la Gaspésie is really worth it.

You can get more info at the Parcs Québec web site. You can stay in a lodge, small cabins or camp. you can also stay at nearby villages like Ste anne des Monts if you have a car to get to the park. The drive from Quebec ( the parc is on the other side of teh river than Tadoussac, is also beautiful. If you like kayaking, you can stop on the way at le Parc du Bic. Or from the Tadoussac side, you can drive east until you get to a point where there is a ferry to the south side of the St-Laurence river ( that will get you to the north side of the Gaspé peninsula, do get a map.)

NO, that would also be self promotional advertising or solicitation.
