Campers and visitors are expected to know and comply with all Gatineau Park rules and regulations during their stay.

Winter trail etiquette
Always stay on official and marked trails. Don’t walk on ski and snowshoe trails. It makes the surface uneven and hardens the trail base, creating conditions that can be dangerous for skiers. Our team works very hard at setting and maintaining the tracks for skiing. Our team works very hard at setting and maintaining the tracks for skiing.
