Do a little research. The drive up from Hull is spectacular. Lots of places to visit, shop and eat hike bike and ski. I would recomend trying Wakefield Village.

“Gatineau Park is practically my back yard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

It never grows old and there is always so much to see. Walking around Pink lake is an enjoyment for all ages. Just did our annual family fall walk over thanksgiving and it was just beautiful. :)

“colours!!!!!”

There are probably great views and drives through Gatineau park at other times of year, but we saw the most spectacular fall colours, in panoramic splendor

Superb view from Champlain's Belvedere. Nice picnic areas. If you like history, there is Lake Meech in the vicinity.

“Breathtaking! Views of all seasons, an escape from the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I absolutely loved visiting Gatineau Park. I went to Pink Lake Lookout first which was gorgeous. So green blue and lovely view. So quiet just outside the city. Lots of lakes are hidden in the park like gems to find in a scavenger hunt. The Samuel de Champlain look out immediately takes you back to his view of the "new world", with a sweet view of large rolling hills with the river and small houses gathered together. I didn't stay at a campsite but next time I want to venture in through the trails for sure!
