7 Absolutely Free Campsites In Quebec You Can Get With Your Friends This Summer

The first thing I discovered while writing this article is this:

Free campsites are rare.

Not only that, but some sites that used to be free often change their policies and start randomly charging small amounts of money depending on the year.

So be smart and bring $20. You know, just in case.

We still managed to find 7 FREE campsite as well as 2 very cheap ones. We also posted a link to a great Facebook group who share their secret camping spots as well as a map displaying the different areas where camping is unrestricted.

Check them out at the bottom of this article.

Sure, riding a bike is great. But have you ever tried soaring through treetops on a floating bicycle, as the fall leaves change colour? At Au Diable Vert, a Quebec campground, farm and nature park in the Eastern Townships, you can do just that.

Au Diable Vert's 'VéloVolant' experience is a unique one. While you can do this ecological activity in the summer, some would argue that it's even more beautiful in the fall.

A Montreal Company Designed Madonna's Camper Van For $200K USD & You Can Peek Inside

The company's custom designs range from $150,000 to $500,000 USD.

On July 26, reigning queen of pop Madonna posted an Instagram video depicting a country-style family barbecue complete with pool floats, puppies, cowboy attire and a metallic glamping (glam camping) vehicle — which was designed by Montreal-based "mobile space" designer Custom Airstream.

The custom airstream company in Montreal said Madonna's 1975 Airstream Sovereign 31' vehicle was designed in the likeness of a five-star hotel, featuring a custom leather couch and matching armchairs, retractable 50-inch TV monitors, a minibar and ice bin, heated floors, a tufted wall with custom light fixtures, a top-of-the-line sound system and custom under-carriage lights.
