Camping Union’s story
Camping Union : The network of campings that unites!
100% Quebec-owned since its beginnings in 2003, Serge and Jean-Sébastien Rioux are at the head of the Camping Union network. Father and son started dreaming about the concept while on a family trip to New Zealand. After renting a motorhome and touring the 10 most beautiful campsites in this country, the idea sprouted to build a camping network here in Quebec.
Behind this idea, the owners wanted travelers to be able to discover places and landscapes unique to Quebec in a superior quality camping environment. This is why the campsites of the Camping Union network are so scattered across the province, in addition to aiming for 4-star or higher quality standards. By visiting the network’s campsites, you will therefore discover 7 tourist regions and formidable bodies of water.
To be a network of campsites that unites family values, integrity, courtesy and teamwork to provide a range of accommodation in exceptional sites.
