G'morning from Mitchell, S.Dak.

Don't know what kind of rig you're driving or whether you'll have a separate vehicle like a truck or a towed car, but...you'll have a wonderful experience in Quebec City and area. We've cut across the Gaspe Peninsula a few times but have yet to do the perimeter...yet. However, a visit to Quebec City is FABULOUS!

At Quebec City, just where Trans-Canadian 20 (runing SW to NE) crosses route 70 (runing N to S) and just on the NW corner of this intersection (S. side of the river), is a nice RV Park called (I think) Bernier (sp?) RV. Anyway, there a couple other parks in this area also. Check your campground directory.

If you have a separate vehicle, we'd strongly suggest parking your RV then touring the area. For example, just N. of the Rt 70 bridge crossing the St. Lawrence river hang a right for about 10 or so blocks and spend some time (daytime, AND nighttime) in Old Town Quebec. It's WONDERFUL. Clip clop carriages, Frontenanc Hotel, boardwalk high above the river, stone buildings w. copper topped roofs, beautiful churches, sidewalk cafes, sidewalk artists, live folk music in various little parks in the evening, GREAT food. You'll think you're in the middle of a beautiful French town....and....it is!!

Also, take a day trip (or overnighter) up the N. shore of the St. Lawrence along Rt. 138 and hop a little FREE ferry over to Tadoussac. Spend a little time there walking the beautiful shoreline boardwalk, and the shops, and along the way you'll see some of the prettiest vistas, and little towns anywhere. Stop for a picnic, and ya might even see a whale or two up in Tadoussac in the fjord/river where the ferry cosses. You'll love it!!

Enjoy your trip.

Steve & Lynette

Do not miss the Gaspasie Provincial Park in St. Anne du Mont halfway between Quebec City and the town of Gaspé. The Appalacian Mountains start there. There is a gourmet cooking school at the lodge (the lodge is called the Gite du Mount Albert) We hiked up Mont Albert and saw the only caribou herd in Eastern Canada. When we visited the first time, we saw a golden eagle, black bear and a moose within 15 minutes.

Skip the town of Gaspé and go to the town of Percé (sometimes called Rocher Percé)

Take a boat over to the gannet colony on Bonaventure Island near Perce and also take a whale watching tour from there. Lots of little fishing villages along the way and the local smoked salmon is the best I've ever had!

Also I forgot to mention that the restaurant in the Hotel Normadie in Perce has great food, is on the beach, and a perfect view of the ocean. My wife and I stayed there a few years back and watched a storm roll in. It was a spectacular sight! Just to clarify how much we like the area, we've been there 6 times.

A little Francais helps because many locals don't speak English well. Merci and Si vous plait will go a long way if you don't have any French language in you. Also Pardon instead of excuse me.

I spent time working in Paris and this area is just like France without an 8 hours airplane ride. If you are a photographer you'll absolutely love the Gaspe peninsula.

I wish we were heading there right now!
