What are the specific directives affecting camping at Poisson Blanc in 2021?

Only residents of the same address can stay in the same tent. Therefore, here are the restrictions that apply to our camping sites :

  • 1 tent site : maximum of 1 household
  • 2 tents site : maximum of 2 households
  • 3 tents site : maximum of 3 households, maximum of 10 people

It is strongly recommended to maintain the physical distance and hygiene measures required between each household.

To know the governmental instructions applicable to our region, the Laurentians, click here. The Park is located in the municipality of Notre-Dame-du-Laus.

Unfortunately, we are fully booked for the 2021 summer season, from June to August.

However, there is still some availability for our campsites during the week for spring and fall. Please note, only the dates displayed in green are available. Click here to know the remaining availability.

This is not an option that we offer.

However, we advise you to consult our website regularly. Some sites and cabins could possibly become available soon.

Also, you can follow us on our Facebook and Instagram page. When we have last minute cancellations during the season, we post them on these platforms.

When the dates are displayed in gray, it means that the selected item or lodging is no longer available for the targeted dates.

This year, the duration of stays will be fixed. This procedure allows us to better control the traffic and movement of visitors on the park’s reception site, and thus make the experience all the safer considering the current context. It will also not be possible to book a stay and change camping sites from one night to the next. The only possible stay durations for 2021 are thus as follows (with the possibility of booking consecutive stays for campers who wish to prolong the stay beyond 2 or 3 nights) :

  • Friday to Monday (3 nights)
  • Monday to Wednesday (2 nights)
  • Wednesday to Friday (2 nights)

There will be no camping sites of the category “4 tents and +” available to book this year. Our camping sites that can usually welcome 4 tents will become part of the “3 tent camping site” category. You will absolutely need to respect the maximum number of tents in each category and comply with the public safety requirements concerning the maximum number of people who can gather during your stay.

Our tent platform size are 8 ″ by 8 ″ and can easily accommodate a average 4 person tent.

It is not possible to change sites during your stay. When reserving a site for a set duration, you must spend each night there. Rest assured, our day halts and hiking trails are all open and ready to be explored. Remember to respect the rules of social distancing while visiting these public places.

It will be possible to cancel a reservation for a refund up to 14 days before the date of the stay, however, a cancellation fee of $10 plus tax will be applied.  No refund can be issued with less than 14 days notice. This policy also applies within the context of the pandemic. If a second outbreak of the virus were to force the Quebec government to close Quebec campgrounds, the stays would be fully reimbursed at no cost. If, within the 14 days preceding your stay, you experience symptoms of the disease associated with Covid-19, call us. We will offer you a fair and conciliatory solution.

This year, it is strongly recommended that you arrive on the same day as the starting day of your reserved block. It is also strongly recommended that a group sharing a multiple tent site, arrive within a reasonable time of each other in order to be welcomed safely by our staff.

If you would like to receive a friend to your campsite during your stay, it is possible to do so, as long as you respect the maximum number of tents in the category of campsite you have reserved. Of course, you will also have to respect the directives in place concerning gatherings of 10 people or less, and physical distancing measure.
