Camp at Cap-Bon-Ami

Cap-Bon-Ami Camping - Search Nearby - Added by Benedikt Jürges

Wonderful tranquil campground on the cliffs of eastern Quebec, Canada.

At the easternmost tip of the Gaspesie Peninsula, in the Forillon National Park, lies the Cap-Bon-Ami campground. This beautiful semi-served campground features 42 tent sites, heated bathrooms, and a kitchen hut. Being a bit out-of-the-way, this campground is not highly popular, reservations are not totally necessary. They can be useful though and be made through Parks Canada.

Surrounded by magnificent cliffs, Cap-Bon-Ami offers great scenery, very different from the surrounding area.

About 10 minutes walking down the only road in the Park from the campground is the lookout over the cliffs, as well as a trailhead for various trails, including:

  • Trail towards Cap Gaspé with its beautifl lighthouse (20 km return)
  • Climb up to Mont St-Alban (600m, elevation gain > 200m)

Cap Gaspé is furthermore the end of the International Appalachian Trail, if one wants to continue this trail, a ferry needs to be taken from here.
