On November 24th 1969, the ministry of wildlife and tourism showed interest in opening a provincial campground in Trois-Pistoles. So they brought a lot, which is 3,878,465 square feet, from the seigniory, Mrs. Anita Rioux.

On July 16th 1970, it's the official opening with 90 sites available on the upper part of the park. None of these sites had services so, in the summer of 1971, 35 more sites are opened in the lover part, and all of those have services. A few changes were brought to the park since its opening; the main change was the acces road which used to be on Avenue Du Parc but in 1977, they changed it on to Chanoine Côté, which crosses the main drag.

From 1970 until 1981, the campground is entirely under provincial Government responsability like the administration, maintenance and hiring.

In June 1982, Trois-Pistoles buys the campground of the Government for a single buck but looks for an organism to operate it. The "Association Chasse et Pêches des Basques" got the bid and their first operating season is a succes. The association really wants that campground to get better and better all the time so they submitted a project to promote the municipal campground.

Now, campers can help them serves with water, fire places, wood, ice etc... and can also enjoy different activities like films, play ground and miscellanous games.

Welcome to Trois-Pistoles, Have a nice holiday and we hope to see you around!
