Owner description: Only 20 minutes from Quebec City, the Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier earned its nickname, “Québec City's Great Outdoors,” with its four-season playground. Winter play is on the area's two ski resorts, snow slides, and its new snowshoeing and Nordic skiing trails. Summertime finds travelers hanging at the lakes. Feeling adventurous? Spend the night in a yurt, primitive campsite or cottage in the woods.

“Beautiful river camping!”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

This park has gorgeous views, being directly on the St. Lawrence river. The electric sites are a little closer than I like - I prefer the sites in the rustic camping loop which are more spread out and wooded.

“Amazing Winter Wonderland”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

This was awesome. Great ice slides, tube rides, busker type shows. AND no charge. It is worth the drive to Hull.

“Winterlude Fun”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

We loved the Winterlude activites at the snowflake kingdom. We were amazed at the amount of activities provided and the quality. This festival is a fantastic event. The park is easily accessed and the best part was that everything was free!
