Fall camping opportunities

Just because summer’s winding down, it doesn’t mean you have to retire your camping equipment!

With cooler temperatures, fewer bugs, and a splendour of fall colours, there’s no better time to get out to one of these beautiful parks:

René Brunelle Provincial Park

Open until September 27, 2020

This is an ecological region known as the Boreal Forest, often called the songbird nursery because so many nest here each summer. Spot Great Gray Owls, Boreal Chickadees, and Canada Jays year-round!
