Cancellations/changes made 48 hrs or fewer hours prior to the scheduled arrival day will result in the forfeiture of a one night camping fee, plus your $8.85 (+HST) reservation fee which is non refundable. The one night fee will be charged to your credit card.
For seasonal campers, please refer to your agreement for cancellation policy.
Loud Noise - disturbing other persons
Be considerate. Please keep the volume of your music, voices and other noises to a reasonable level. Interfering with anyone else's use or enjoyment of a park, day or night, is not only inconsiderate - it is also contrary to park regulations. Quiet hours are enforced 24 hours a day.
Most campgrounds operated by the Parks of the St. Lawrence permit the drinking of beer, wine and other spirits , but only on a registered campsite. Drinking, or the possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in any other park area is against the law.
Note: You should check with your campground for the dates and parks affected by any alcohol bans.
