Détails de l'activité


Join us for our annual camping weekend at Batiscan River Park. Crossed by the beautiful Batiscan river, the park offers a landscape with falls and basins. We cordially invite you to come and visit one of the treasures of the Mauricie region, in the heart of Quebec located only 2 hours away from Montreal by car. We reserved two group campsites, 5 minutes away from the river in the Grand Bassin. The campsite is rustic, there are only dry toilets and picnic tables on the site.

*Note: no water point available. The showers and toilets are 2-3 km away from the site (20 to 30 minutes walk or 5-8 minutes drive).


  • $32 for 2 nights per person including the campground reservation and the fire wood. You will have to pay this amount to Fannie via INTERACT e-transfer to: or at the Happy Hour in cash or by check. (Due to the increase in the rates of this park, there is an increase in the cost this year. Thank you for your understanding given the late organization).
  • $10.50 fee per person for access to the park (to be paid upon arrival at the park’s entrance)
  • There is no fee for parking
  • Camping ground Map for sites 231 and 232. We are going to meet at campsite 231, campsite 232 will only be the sleeping area.
