A regional park is a status conferred to a territory in order to allow communities to take charge of it in a regional development perspective. In this sense, it becomes a tool for the communities to take charge of the management of a given territory. In the Poisson Blanc Regional Park’s case, it is the need to take charge of the environmental issues and to control traffic that has led to the establishment of a non-profit; the Corporation du parc du Poisson Blanc (CPPB), which has acted since that time as the developer and manager of the Poisson Blanc Regional Park.

It is unlikely; the patrol ensures that the site is empty before your arrival. If, however, it should happen, make sure that you have a copy of your invoice in order to inform the occupants gently that you have reserved. It is not guaranteed that you will have cell signals in order to contact the Entrance Office, if so, do it. As a last resort, you can come back to the office to inform us of the situation.
There is no refund less than a week from the date of the stay, come rain or shine.
