Update: On June 10, it was decided that the laundry facilities at the Lac Philippe campground will not be accessible to campers this summer. See changes on the NCC’s website: https://ncc-ccn.gc.ca/places/covid-19-camping-measures

Gatineau Hills families are already gathering at Lac Philippe to soak up the sun but the NCC says you can sit by the water and float on top of it, but you’re still not allowed to swim in it.
