The Base Camp, located at 5 St. Jean Baptiste Street in the village of L'Anse-Saint-Jean Quebec, is a lodge and restaurant situated on a large property bordering the St-Jean river, halfway between the Mont-Edouard ski resort and the Saguenay Fjord. Nature lovers will enjoy the warm and welcoming atmosphere and simple, comfortable accommodations at an affordable price, and personalized guest services.

Our mission is to offer the perfect “base” from which to discover the many attractions and outdoor recreation activities of the Bas-Saguenay (Lower Saguenay). In the heart of the Bas-Saguenay boreal forest, the Base Camp is conveniently located at the entrance to the village of L’Anse-Saint-Jean, and offers unique, simple, and eco-friendly accommodations.

The Base Camp is an ideal location for your group parties and events. Our lodge and restaurant are open all year-round!

Our lodge is a classified youth hostel with 9 private rooms (with bathrooms) and a 7-bed dormitory. The Base Camp offers guests unique spaces to relax. A large dining room with sitting area, board games, books and musical instruments, and an intimate rear patio with bar and campfire area, allow guests to enjoy memorable moments with family and friends.

You’ll eat well at the Base Camp. Whether for lunch or dinner, our “tapas” bar menu includes products smoked on site, quality vegetarian options, and of course a fine selection of regional craft beers. Definition of tapas: Bouchée (small portion of an entrée or main course) which is eaten so well with the aperitif. But beware ... for the big hungers, we also have what it takes! We try to cook "Maison" as much as possible and that's why it's so good! A take-out lunch box service is available for your day-trips or expeditions.

Our kitchen opens for breakfast and also offers lunch and dinner.

Bon appétit!
