We stayed recently for two nights while traveling to Gaspe. This was a nice, quiet campground. Decent privacy between sites but not the best. Due to COVID and it being September the area we stayed in was not busy at all. The site we were on was a little small perhaps but we did set up both our 3-person sleep tent and our 11x11' eat tent. Washroom and shower facilities were clean, well-maintained and readily accessible. We would definitely stay again when in the Quebec City area.
We thought this was a great deal. In September that is. I read the poorest rating comment and can believe it for early August, but September is lovely here. Yes the ground is hard. Best to have a camper van or not have to stake a tent. Spots are close but everyone has been respectful. Mostly couples not families in September. The staff has been very accommodating. Yes it's a hike up to the top sites. We never went to the clubhouse and the shuttle was kind enough to deliver us to our site. Hike through the forest in the morning .
Hard to believe this camping spot is so close to the city. The staff are really friendly. The camp sites are roomy, and lots of trees nearby. The shower/bathroom facilities are very clean. You do not need to pay for a shower. They even offer wifi for a small fee of $2 a day-totally worth it. I did however find the firewood expensive, $9 a bag, but not a deal breaker. They even offer food services at the main office. And an Uber to old quebec was approx 10-12 min ride and approx $20 one way.
We stayed at this campground for four nights and generally were very pleased. It is a modest drive from most of the tourist destinations but well positioned to travel to the Jacques Cartier National Park. I'd say the campground was 20 minutes from the Old City of Quebec. Traffic in Quebec City was about what you would expect for a modern major city. The service of the campground staff was very nice but do note the grade of the streets into and out of this park was steep in places.
Spacious shaded spots. Several bathrooms. Outdoor pool. View of city. Office, store, laundry on site. Small restaurant on site. Affordable. Close to grocery store. (bicycling).close to other shopping via car.
My husband and I spent 4 nights at Camping De La Joie, and just loved it! It was hands down our favorite campground after spending two weeks in Canada. We chose it due to its' proximity to downtown Quebec City. Since we had our car with us, we drove into Old Town, which took about 20 minutes. The campground is situated in a steep hill, offering gorgeous views of the city in the distance. We loved all of the trees, fall color was peak when we were there last week and it was amazing. Our pull thru site was towards the back of the campground, and had plenty of room for our 32' motor home and car. Trees between sites made it feel very private. Many seasonal sites, all were very well maintained and not dumpy in the least. Entire campground is super clean and well taken care of! Paved roads thru the campground were in great shape. No road noise so we slept great! Office staff are super friendly, helpful, and speak excellent English. Laundry facilities were appreciated! As was the large lounge with big screen tv. We would have loved to stay longer!!…
Crowded spot. Big hill to walk back up to your site from the office. It has a very nice pool. Nice camp store. Pricey although it may be normal for the area. Approximately 10 miles to quebec city. For the location i give it 4 stars.
Wanted a place to stay close to Vieux Quebec....they even run a shuttle for $8/ person each way....much better than driving and parking in the city. The sites are sand and level...quiet for the most part....quite enjoyable....with a pool to enjoy to get away from the heat
What a stunning location! Great proximity to downtown, beautiful views. The climb to the top of the hill was interesting with a 12,000lb fifth wheel, but the views were worth it. Our site was difficult to access and back into, but that is only due to the location on the hill...the owners have obviously worked to keep the sites as level as possible, even with the topography. We paid for WiFi at our site and had great access. The showers and bathrooms were large and clean. My husband was very impressed with a young man who obviously had a few jobs on site...he was the lifeguard at the pool, and was very kind in keeping the pool open later than scheduled when we showed up late in the day. We then saw him up early in the morning cleaning the showers and bathrooms, his hard work was not unnoticed, we appreciated him!!…
We recently completed an RV trip with our granddaughter. We wanted to take her to Quebec City to experience a different culture. We do not tow a vehicle, so how to see the city without constant disconnecting, not to mention the hassle of parking, becomes a big issue. Camping de Joie has a wonderful shuttle that costs about $12US per person round trip. Problem solved. We were dropped off around 9:30 in the morning and elected to return around 6:30. The camp itself is woodsy and nice and quiet. The bathroom is small and very rustic but clean. This is the only predominantly French speaking RV camp that we stayed in, but it was no problem as the people were very nice and made an extra effort to understand and help you.
