Whether you are looking for the comfort of a fully serviced campsite or the rustic charm of more rudimentary pitches, a camping stay in the park guarantees peaceful nights.

River Eternity Sector
There are about 100 pitches without services and two services (water and electricity) that can accommodate tents and recreational vehicles. Near the Baie-Éternité campground are picnic areas, a mini convenience store at the discovery centre, hiking trails, via ferrata trails and guided sea kayaking, zodiac and rabaska excursions.

Located 3.5 km from the reception, open-air sites are also reserved for group camping. They are accessible on foot (approximately 100 metres to walk). This is the perfect opportunity to spend a memorable stay with family, friends, a school group or a summer camp. Near the group area there is a sanitary block, picnic tables and fire pits.

Baie-Sainte-Marguerite sector

Camping le Bleuvet: Approximately fifty sites with no services and two services (water and electricity) can accommodate tents and recreational vehicles. Near the campground: hiking trails, beluga whale watching lookout, Nature Boutique at the Discovery and Services Centre.

Discover Baie Éternité from high above! Securely anchored to the cliffs overhanging the bay, cross the void on an 85 meter long suspended bridge! Groups are limited to a maximum of 8 people to ensure close contact with the guide at all times. The crossing is carried out in a safe manner at the rhythm of the participants.

Our two discovery and service centres offer exhibitions where you can discover the special character of the fjord, its history and the species found there. Visit Le Fjord du Saguenay, in Rivière-Éternité, and Le Béluga, in Baie-Sainte-Marguerite in the municipality of Sacré-Cœur.

When winter comes, Fjord-du-Saguenay National Park becomes the well-kept secret of many outdoor, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing enthusiasts.

A Nordic ski and snowshoe trail, with a stay in a refuge or rustic camp, links Rivière-Éternité to L'Anse-Saint-Jean.

The Baie-Sainte-Marguerite de Sacré-Coeur sector is also accessible as far as the refuge de l'anse à la Barge.
