Camping
on the Islands

Halte Poisson Blanc camping canot

Here, You Can Have
an Island All to Yourself!

The camping sites on the Poisson Blanc reservoir are located on islands or peninsulas. They are only accessible by watercraft except for our two sites by the mountain. Rustic and isolated, they offer an exceptional camping experience over a vast body of water where having no nearby neighbours is one of the main attractions. Here, we are elsewhere !

Camping Site Categories

At Poisson Blanc, the rate isn’t calculated per person but per tent. There are 4 camping site categories: 1 tent, 2 tents, 3 tents, and 4 tents. You’ll have guessed that each category represents the hosting capacity of the camping site in numbers of tents. The reservation of a camping site guarantees you exclusive access to said site. Our tent spots can take medium-sized tents of 4 people. It is permitted to be maximum 4 persons per tent.

It is strictly forbidden to add more tents than a camping site permits. Serious penalties will be collected directly from your credit card if this rule is broken. Consult our code of conduct to know all the rules of the park

Patrol and Supplies

Your Poisson Blanc Regional Park reservation includes a bag of campfire wood per night of your reservation, delivered directly on your island at the beginning of your stay. Every day between 1pm and 6pm, our patrol team navigates the Poisson Blanc reservoir to deliver orders to customers who wish to be resupplied : bags of ice and campfire wood to campers.

How to Get Supplies?

The best practice consists in telling our customer service colleagues when you register at the reception at the beginning of your stay the items you wish to have delivered during your stay. The other option is to phone the reception directly from your island in the morning (before 11 am) so we can add the items you wish delivered to your daily delivery. And yes, most camping sites on the island now have cellphone service. We’re not sure if it’s a good thing or not, but it’s certainly practical.

How to Choose Your Island ?

You have to admit, camping on an island is pretty romantic. But the fairy tale can quickly turn into a nightmare if you didn’t reserve a camping site adapted to your abilities and needs.

First, it’s important to choose your site according to the distance you’re willing to travel in your watercraft from the reception area to your island. Consult the park map to locate your site before booking. Intermediate level paddlers travel approximately 3 km/h.

Don’t Overestimate Your Skills

You need to keep in mind that a reservoir isn’t always smooth sailing. Wind and waves will impact your progress. To take full advantage of your Poisson Blanc experience, here are the different factors to consider when choosing a site that matches your needs:

  • the distance to cover
  • the type of watercraft
  • the site’s hosting capacity
  • the hour of arrival at the park
  • activity locations
  • Your outdoor skills

Motor Boats

The Poisson Blanc Regional Park doesn’t have a launch ramp for motor boats. Campers who wish to get to their camping site in a motor boat will have to use the Lake Campion public boat launch ramp, located 10.5km away from the reception centre. You will then be able to come park your car and your trailer in the parking lot provided for that purpose near the reception centre.

It’s important to note that the camping sites on the islands are not equipped with docks and the banks are generally made of pebbles and stones, though a few do feature a beach.

How to Get to Your Island ?

Is there a ferry or shuttle service to cross the water to your islands? Well, no, you need to get there on your own. If you don’t have a watercraft, no problem: the Park offers you a wide range of watercraft for rent to get you to your adventure. Canoes with 2, 3, 4 benches, solo/duo sea kayaks, and paddle boards, the choice is up to you. Learn more about the watercraft rentals available for reservation.

Other Informations

The time of arrival at your camping site (check-in) is 3pm. Departure time is 11am (check-out). However, you can collect your watercraft rental as soon as the park opens in the morning, at 9am, and return it before 5pm on your last day. Many public rest areas are accessible on the reservoir if you wish to take advantage of your last day after checking out from the camping site.

Parking

Parking and a waterproof map of the Park’s islands and paths are included in your camping site reservation. Your reservation includes 1 parking space per tent. For example, a camping site for 3 tents includes 3 parking spaces. A $10 fee per night applies to additional vehicles.

Small guide and checklist

Poisson Blanc Regional Park strongly suggests that users respect its Code of Conduct. Inspired by the “Leave No Trace Program”, overseen by Aventure Écotourisme Québec. It supplies a basic recipe to follow in order to allow present and future generations to benefit from the Park’s wonders.

The Camper’s Guide lists the equipment to bring, or not to forget, and other relevant information. It’s worth a look.
