Nestled in the beautiful Québecois countryside lies a little beach on the St. Lawrence River where the eels swim free. Or not so free actually since there are eel traps along the coastline. Anyway, there are about 6 spots along the edge of the beach where campers come to park their vans or set up their tents. Wouldn’t suggest it for anything bigger than a C class but a giant RV pulled in in the middle of the night and managed to find a spot to pull in. No facilities other than a garbage can and recycling bin. There is a house at the top of the hill along the road to the beach, so be respectful. This is a popular spot for people to swim in the evenings and just relax on the beach. There’s also a brewery just down the road in Saint-André called Tête d’Allumette that’s got some super tasty brews to enjoy at the bar or in a growler to take with you.
Elephant in the room: as you turn onto the road in (route de la grève), there is a sign that says “camping interdit” (= camping prohibited). As off-putting as it was, we were referred to stay there by a local and there were 5 or 6 other campers spending the night when we were there so I suppose it’s not really followed. Just be sure to be respectful of the area and probably don’t spend more than one night there.
