A campsite that deserves to be known

Located in Saint-Mathieu-de-Rioux, the Koa Bas-Saint-Laurent campsite can become a fairly unique destination for all campers in terms of geographical location and available services.

Its location on the shores of Lake Saint-Mathieu ensures you a breathtaking view of the region. The geography of the site and the division of pitches ensure that you are never deprived of this magnificent view.

As for the services, they are complete and of high quality. All campers are welcome. On site, in addition to electricity and other services, you have access to various activities, including the brand new field with its water games. A member of the KOA network, this campsite has received many honors over the years.

“Our goal has always been to offer the best to the campers who visit us,” explained the president and co-owner of the premises, Mr. Thomas Gagnon. We are finally coming out of the pandemic, which will allow us to be able to offer the maximum to the campers who will trust us. »

Note that in addition to campsites, the site also offers stays in luxury chalets and cabins.

“If we rely on reservations for seasonal campers and travelers, as for cabins and cabins, the season will be as strong if not better than the summer of 2021. Quite honestly, we had some concerns with the opening of borders. »


For this specialist, the opening of borders will change things, but in both directions.

“Probably more people from Quebec will go abroad, but, conversely, more people from outside will come to Quebec. It is certain that gas prices will play into the balance and that people will change certain habits, but I am confident. »

However, he notices that many amateurs, unlike last year, book less in advance.

“We feel a lot of uncertainty from people who don’t want to book too early. In 2021, before the season officially opened, reservations were already completed. This season we are getting back to more normal with places available for all months of the season. On the other hand, for chalets and cabins, the level of reservations is as high as last year. »

This specialist is perfectly aware that with the lifting of sanitary measures, people know that now they can travel everywhere more easily.


Given its location, this campground can offer you several opportunities to visit very interesting sites in Bas-Saint-Laurent.

“We are an easily accessible destination, two and a half hours from Quebec. There is no more room for seasonal workers and for travellers, we can say that 50% of our sites are reserved. I believe that this season, people will come to us for longer stays. They will take the opportunity to visit the attractions of the region. People will be able to go to Rimouski to visit the maritime museum and the Onondaga submarine. »

“In Trois-Pistoles, cruises to Île aux Basques are very popular. They provide a better understanding of the history surrounding the presence of these people who were there before Jacques-Cartier’s arrival. »

“Very close to here, we have the Parc du Mont Saint-Mathieu, where people can go hiking or mountain biking. The beach on the shores of the lake is available. This season, we will be able to restart our activities such as thematic weekends. Really, a stay with us allows you to experience many different things. »

This campsite is rated five stars. It has 262 sites, including 227 for RVs, 23 for tents/tent-caravans and 12 luxury chalets/cabins for four or six people.

Traveling campers can find a place there for a short stay, whatever the type of equipment, from tents to the longest recreational vehicles.

We can also highlight the atmosphere of camaraderie that reigns on the site, which is often sought by many campers.

You will quickly realize that a stay there will be very pleasant to live and share.

Also, the Domaine Saint-Mathieu division offers many services such as quality accommodation, terrace, lounge bar, dining room and a fitness room. Gas service is also available.
