South sector: access limited to authorized persons from Monday to Friday
From January 8, 2018, from Monday to Friday, access will be limited to authorized persons on roads beyond the gates in the South sector. Exceptionally, the road will be plowed but cannot be used for winter activities. As part of the the federal infrastructure investment program, the ongoing work will cause higher heavy machinery traffic.
Visitors can access the South sector on Saturday and Sunday only. You must park your cars at entrance, before the gate. Please use the designated path (in green) indicated in the map below, which represent the Petit-Gaspé campground. The North sector is accessible at all times.

We rarely head out for an outdoor adventure with the expectation that something will go wrong, and most times everything will go right. However, sometimes the unexpected happens and when it does, it’s important that you are well informed and well prepared to minimize the negative impact of unfortunate circumstances.
