There are a lot of nice things about this park. It is very green and feels private in the family temp camping spots. The mountain bike trails are great and there are plenty of things to do around the park. The amenities like the pool and snack bar are set up to entertain families with kids. The downside is that the park is very close to a large water treatment facility and we frequently had bad smells coming through the campground. It was pretty hard to ignore.

I really like this park and have been here multiple times, but for some reason they have added some sort of sound stage in the middle, close to the lookout tower, with some very loud ambient music on a loop. That's quite disappointing as I usually enjoy the peace and natural sounds in the forest, not loud repetitive artificial sounds.

We went to the park during the day and at night to see Foresta Lumina. It was wonderful, the suspension bridge is long and gives a nice view on the river. If you come late in the summer, there won't be much water tough, but it is possible to walk on the rocks at the bottom of the river and put your feet in the water. Really nice park.

Discover the Eastern Townships

Mont Brome is part of the Eastern Townships region, also known as the Eastern Townships, and in particular the Township of Brome-Missisquoi. The region is located in southeastern Quebec and shares the border with the United States for approximately 300km.

The Eastern Townships are considered a true natural painting because of its wonderful landscapes where mountains follow one another in hills and valleys. The forests too, which cover almost 80% of the territory, are an incredible sight, especially when there are the colors of autumn.

Here there are also four national parks. In particular, the Mont-Mégantic National Park is known for its scientific observatory where you can admire the starry sky.

Because of its natural spaces this region is considered one of the most famous tourist destinations for those who love outdoor life. In fact, here you can do sports in all seasons, choosing among mountain biking, hiking, skiing...

The small villages of the Eastern Townships are also very picturesque to see: the architectural style of the buildings is very much affected by the Anglo-Saxon heritage and it seems that time has stood still here.

The Eastern Townships invite tourists to enjoy the friendly atmosphere of its many small restaurants and cafés, where you can try the gastronomic specialties of the region.

And if you still need a reason to visit the Eastern Townships, think of its two wine routes with 30 vineyards, which make this region an interesting destination for all those who would like to spend a stay under the sign of good regional products and gourmet food.
