Whispering Pines - Curran, Ontario

30 sites · Tents60 acres · ON
'Whispering Pines' was bought about 35 years ago as our dream retirement home, a place to rest, have a quiet life, enjoy nature and have a peaceful retirement for ever and ever...In past years we have been a family camp. and an event camp with camping festivals, special events, and day visits. Now we welcome visitors who are looking for a casual, rustic, laid back experience with nature in a simple, peaceful setting. Nature is allowed to thrive on our property, and the entire property is forested and wild. The majority of our campsites are shaded under a verdant and lush canopy. Our private beach and small lake welcome you for a swim. All we ask of our visitors is: that whatever you bring in you take home with you, that you leave your campsite and the property the way you found it, and the only thing you take from here are pictures and happy memories. All of our campsites are off-grid, un-serviced, drive-in camping. Campfire wood and recycling facilities are available on site. Maintained outhouses are available throughout the property. There is no potable water on the property so please bring your own drinking and cooking water. Children under 12 can camp for free. When booking a campsite please only include any guests over 12 years of age in your guest count. Children under 12 do not need to be included in your booking. Contact us to inquire about large group and event rates. We host LARPing weekends twice a month. We also have a limited number of seasonal sites available from June to September. I love this property and all the people who visit us, many have become extended family and for this I am grateful. There is nothing nicer than to have people drop by and spend a couple of hours, a day or a weekend, sometime when I get real lucky it's for a longer period of time :-)

Camping near Gatineau guide

Overview

Part of Canada’s National Capital Region, Gatineau is beloved for its museums, beer, and outdoor opportunities. The area’s renowned for its hiking trails, ranging from beginner jaunts to challenging, multi-day treks. Come winter, many of these routes are transformed into groomed snowshoeing and cross-country skiing paths. Just two hours from Montreal, Gatineau and the surrounding region provide conventional camping sites, RV options, canoe camping, four-season tents, yurts, and cabins to suit every adventure level.

When to go

Summer is undeniably the most popular time to explore in and around Gatineau Park, the second-most visited park in Canada. Reservations around Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (a public holiday in Quebec celebrated June 24) and Canada Day tend to book up quickly. Early autumn excursions provide the best combination of pleasant weather and low traffic but there is one exception—expect dense weekend crowds in mid-October, when fall colours are at their best.

Know before you go

  • If you want to fish in Quebec, you’ll need a license. Fortunately, they’re inexpensive and easy to obtain.
  • You can buy everything from kayaks to backpack-friendly doggy dishes at Atmosphere in Gatineau. 
  • If your idea of essential supplies includes craft beer, check out Broue Ha Ha. They stock the largest supply of Quebec craft beer in the region, plus salami, nuts, cheese, pickles, potato chips, and a generous selection of hot sauce.
  • If you’ve ever wanted to combine trekking and afternoon tea, you can make it happen in Gatineau Park at the Mackenzie King Estate. This one-time summer home of a former Canadian Prime Minister offers an elegant afternoon tea complete with cucumber sandwiches.
