Review: We spent one night in Loop E (#170) with electric only because the other loop had not yet opened to campers. This was a beautiful, large, level, wooded site with lots of mosquitoes. Loop E is quite steep and curvy, but we managed fine. There is a dump station with water fill prior to entering the campground loops if you need it.
The next morning we moved over to Loop A (#6) because it had electric and water. The sites looked like they had recently been renovated. Very level gravel pad, large sites again. Not as many trees so less privacy than in Loop E, but lots of fresh grass and small bushes that the cats liked. This was the loop where we saw the black bear. It had probably been coming there for dinner before the loop opened to campers and saw no reason to abandon the habit. We were never in danger; we just enjoyed watching the bear eat from a safe distance.
Petit-Gaspé is the most popular of the Forillon campgrounds. It’s centrally located to the sights. No wifi in the national park at all, but we were so busy enjoying nature that we didn’t miss it! We would definitely stay here again.
Since we had our Parks Canada Discovery Pass, we did not have to pay the daily per-person fee, but it can add up quickly. We bought the Family Group pass, which covers everyone in your vehicle, and it’s good for a year.
