For those looking for a unique winter experience in the area, three rustic shelters are available for overnight ski or snowshoe adventures in a safe and cozy environment.

The shelters, located in the South Kouchibouguac campground along the cross country ski trail, are available from November 1st to March 31.

Reservations in advance: call the park at (506) 876-2443.

Shelters are accessible by ski (10 km), by snowshoes (9 to 12 km depending on route chosen) and by foot or bicycle - conditions permitting.

Available in or near shelters: picnic tables, sleeping platforms, stoves, firewood, kindling, shovel, orientation maps, smoke detector and fire extinguisher. Dry toilets are located within 10 metre of the shelters.

Your reservation will confirm one of the three available shelters. Only once you arrive on site will you discover which of the three shelters will be yours during your stay. Shelters are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

From the end of October until the Park road closes for safety reasons, the shelters are accessible from Ryans. Visitors can park their vehicles at Ryans and walk to the shelters by following the bikeway along Kouchibouguac River. (Walking distance: from 800 m to 1.3 km)
