Provincial park campsite reservations for summer 2021 open on Nov. 14


Quebecers who'd like to spend some of their summer camping at provincial parks in 2021 should make their reservations in advance. 

With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing most people outdoors, the demand for access to provincially-owned spaces has increased. 

"The best way to get your hands on your dream location in the destination of your choice is to book it as quickly as possible," reads a Monday news release by SEPAQ. 

Reservations for the 2021 summer season open at various times on Nov. 14, depending on the park, and can be made either online or by calling 1-800-665-6527.

SEPAQ recommends for Quebecers to visit its website before reservations open to plan their stays.

In the summer of 2020, some places, like Gaspe, outlawed camping in public areas, suggesting campers visit provincial parks instead. 

With no immediate end to COVID-19 in sight, it is possible that summer 2021, like summer 2020, will be characterized by safe, outdoor activities.
