Front-Country Camping


Camping has always been a very popular activity in Kouchibouguac National Park. Campers appreciate the privacy and the feeling of tranquility the Kouchibouguac campsites provide. Nearby sandy beaches, playgrounds, the bikeway and nature trails offer something for everyone.

Camping is so popular at Kouchibouguac that the campgrounds are often full during the peak period of June 28th to September 1st. For this reason, we highly recommend you take advantage of our reservation system.

Equipped Camping

Parks Canada in partnership with Mountain Equipment Co-op is now offering Equipped Campsites at Kouchibouguac National Park.

Prohibition of Firewood Importation

Please be aware that firewood importation is now prohibited at Kouchibouguac National Park.

A limited number of sites will continue to be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have not made a reservation, it is very important as soon as you arrive in the area that you inquire at the park Visitor Centre regarding the availability of campsites.

For a detailed description of our campgrounds, see the links below:

Dim the lights!

Don't forget that Kouchibouguac is a Dark Sky Preserve and so we encourage you to minimize as much as possible lighting in the campground.

Please Follow the Speed Limits

In any location such as a national park, it is very important that you follow the posted speed limit.

Roads in the campgrounds are very sinuous. The numerous trees and thick vegetation as well as the large number of campers walking and cycling inside the campground increase the possibilities of accidents. It is therefore imperative that you follow the 20 km/hr speed limit.

Wherever you are in the park, if you are driving a motorized vehicle, remember to respect the speed limits.

You and Your Pets

We appreciate and realize that your pet is an important family member. However for the security of your pet and the security of others, pets must be kept on a leash at all times and are never to be left unattended.

Pets pose a threat to wildlife, especially young animals and birds that nest along the barrier islands. Pets are not permitted on the beach or on the boardwalk leading to the beach.

While in the Park, please scoop and dispose of your pets' excrement in a sanitary manner.
