Jacques Cartier Professional Review and Guide

"Jacques Cartier is named for the French explorer who first mapped the St. Lawrence River in the sixteenth century. Campsites are organized into two groups, with a comfort station for each. Sites 44–54 as well as numbers 110, 111, 113, 115, 117, 119, and 121 are directly on the waterfront, which makes them sunnier and a bit more expensive. Meanwhile, sites 1–35 are closer to Route 12, which cuts through the park. A sheltered beach makes the small swimming area especially suitable for children. Open lawns also give them plenty of space to run around and play. A handful of short nature trails weave through Jacques Cartier, one of which leads to a miniature cascade called First Falls. Only a mile away across the St. Lawrence, the skyline of Brockville, Ontario, is clearly visible from the park."
