“Basic RV Parking Within Walking Distance to Old Quebec”

Overall Rating

We stayed here in September 2018. There are no facilities- no hookups, no restrooms, no dump station. It is simply a parking lot, adjacent to a working harbor, that allows RV parking.

The harbor is easy to get to. From the freeway, you take a large boulevard, then a few turns until you reach the parking lots. If you look at Google satellite map, you'll see where the RVs congregate. There are adjacent car parking lots there, as well, where people were parking to board the cruise ship.

You enter the lot, park wherever you want, then go to a pay machine to pay, and then put the receipt on your dash. The rates are $50. (Canadian) to park 6 hours, or $70. for up to 24 hours. They do take Visa. Hint- You can't just push a button to select the 24 hour rate. The pay machine will start off with the 6 hour rate and you have to manually scroll the up arrow to get to the 24 hour rate. There ARE some instructions in English on the pay machines.

There is a nice walking path that takes you around the marina and onto the waterfront side of Old Quebec. From there, you can explore the many quaint streets and buildings, shops and restaurants.

The 3 stars rating is because it's a parking lot in a really great location. It's not meant to be nice or quiet. It's a noisy harbor where you hear things like train cars connecting in the wee hours of the night. But, what makes up for that is the proximity to a most beautiful city. We appreciated parking once, then walking in a city where you would not want to take any sized rig onto most streets. Cities are usually difficult for us and we often avoid them as we don't have a tow vehicle. We very much appreciated that the City of Quebec allows RV parking.

Our Verizon signal was switched over to the local carrier but had full signal. Our Winegard Rayzar pulled in multiple TV stations, en Francais.

Our arrival time was around 1pm so we had until that time the next day. It was the perfect amount of time to walk into Old Quebec, take the Funiculaire, walk the Terasse Dufferin past the Chateau Frontenac to the Citadel, then on to dinner. The next morning, we walked back into town and explored some more. Since the parking lot itself was somewhat noisy, we wouldn't have wanted to stay longer. 24 hours for us was perfect. It left us with more to explore we go back.
