Quebec City camping

If you are self-contained, you may camp in the parking lot at the marina in downtown Quebec City. It is expensive for just a parking space, but oh so convenient to everything QC. Obviously first come, first served.

Anyone ever went through Chataugay before Montreal to go to the south shore?

If you are going to New Brunswick as well the Oceanfront Campground in St Andrews right on the Bay , nice town as well, good to walk around in as well. We spend many nights there.

If you cross at Chatauqay is is a short drive through the town with lots of traffic lights before reaching Highway 30 then is is a direct run to Highway 20. The traffic can be busy but it is better then going through Montreal. The tunnel has a hazard restriction. I do not know if you could go through the tunnel with propane tanks. I always take the south shore when going through Quebec. Have a nice trip.

Here are a few links to the Mulocheville tunnel at Beauharnois Hydro Dam:

Thanks Caper, that's what I was thinking about, I went this way once but didn't pay attention to the roads for RVing but will make an other trip on it without trailer (I'll go see my dad on the south shore) and see how it looks.

fonzie, this is what I was wondering about! I've taken this road before (salabery de valleyfield ) and I remember the hydro electric stuff but don't remember it being a tunnel but now that you've share the video... it's all coming back to me now

" However, these prohibitions do not apply:

when the fuel is used for the propulsion of the vehicle and is contained in one or more tanks designed for that purpose by the vehicle manufacturer;
when the flammable liquid is used for the air conditioning of the vehicle or the load space and is contained in a tank designed for that purpose by the air conditioning manufacturer;
when the flammable liquid is intended for the operation of equipment that is permanently screwed or bolted to the vehicle whose tank capacity does not exceed 75 litres and the flammable liquid is contained in a tank designed for that purpose by the vehicle or equipment manufacturer;"

not sure how to read this
can I or can't I go through the tunnel with my 2 propane tanks off??

Cavendish KOA was nice when we were there ('09). Marco Polo was also within a mile of the KOA. The Oven's in Nova Scotia was right on the ocean, we could hear the waves crashing on the shore the whole time. You used to be able to stay overnight in the Quebec rest stops, the price was right, free!

You'll have a great time, happy camping,

BouBou, I have not gone through the tunnel with my trailer yet. I believe it is permissible if you shut off your propane tanks and are within allowable size. Also you have to follow the"Hazardous Signage", go into right lane, stop at red light and then proceed when green light for that lane. See pictures attached.

Funny, I drove there this weekend I was looking for the right lane. Seems like both lanes sorta merge into one large lane into the tunnel.

We've booked Brudennel Provincial Park in PEI, not so close to cavendish but looks like a nice park. It was recommended by some local PEI friends.
