Choose your campsite: in the woods, on the lake or on the beach

In the Philippe Lake and Taylor Lake sectors, you’ll find campsites that meet your needs, either in the wooded areas, by the beach or on the side of the lake. There are many services available as well as a range of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, canoeing and swimming. This is truly a place where you can unwind for real!

Discovery activities

Once you’ve pitched your tent, it’s time for a swim! So head over to any of the three beaches on the shores of Philippe Lake, one of which is reserved exclusively for campers. If you prefer an activity on the water rather than in the water, rent a canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard. You could also decide to go exploring on the hiking trails. The popular interpretation program is an interactive way to learn more about the friendly furry and feathered residents of the park and about the work of conservation undertaken at Gatineau Park.
