A forest to wander in, a land to discover
In Lanaudière, nearby the Saint-Côme village, the Gollé Goulu offers a unique glamping and country camping experience. In a small valley located between two mountains, also called “Gollé”, ready-to-camp units and rustic camping sites were set up to accommodate couples, families and friends. The Gollé Goulu is a four-season campground in Lanaudière and a great place to go for a walk, harvest, eat, contemplate, and sleep!
The Gollé Goulu brings together the forest and the land, the wild and the “culture” in the respect of the environment and the ecosystems. The Gollé Goulu is the desire to preserve and create biodiversity; it also values the importance of knowing what surrounds us, whether it is the land and the forest or the various inhabitants of the place … for the greatest delight of your eyes, your ears and your taste buds!
The Gollé Goulu is first and foremost an effort to return to our roots, to protect the environment that surrounds us and to get to know it better.
Some of the ready-to-camp sites, wild and semi-wild, offer a beautiful view on the former farmland that is regaining its nourishing vocation. For nearly 10 years, a part of this 200 acres land has been in the process of being rehabilitated by the introduction of green manures and organic inputs to create a real orchard-garden.
Since the spring of 2021, the Gollé Goulu has welcomed two beehives in its cultivated area, near the greenhouse. Our thousands of bees pollinate the surrounding flora during the summer. At the end of the season, we can taste the Goulumiel honey, golden like the goldenrod that brightens up the meadow. Follow us on social media to find out about the dates of availability of our Goulumiel!
We invite you to observe our bees to discover all the links that unite us with pollinators and better understand the fauna and flora that surround us.

The Gollé Goulu’s ready-to-camp units consist of five cabins, a large yurt and a canvas tent (Witente) that can accommodate up to eight people (depending on the unit). Designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible, these accommodations are made in part of wood taken from the land, sustainable materials and recycled equipment. They were built on-site or by local artisans and are as “ecological” as possible.
These units, located at the edge of the forest or hiking trails, are lit by solar energy lamps and heated with wood. Staying in these accommodations is also, in a way, like inhabiting the nature that made them possible.
The Gollé Goulu offers you a nature getaway that will nourish your senses. Between rustic camping and “glamping” (less rustic!), you’ll enjoy an outdoor retreat in the open air and will fill your lungs up … with fresh air! The Gollé Goulu offers a well-organized return to basics thanks to its attentive services and team.
Upon your arrival, a wood fire welcomes you; you may need to rekindle it in the coldest weather (two stoves may be necessary when it is 30 degrees below zero)! The dry toilet is just a few steps away from your cabin. The sanitary block is accessible, depending on the location of your unit, within a 10-minute walk, at most. In your unit, you’ll have access to a tank of drinking water for drinking and cooking, and a tank of non-drinking water for washing dishes.
Some batteries don’t recharge in a forest bath! If you need to power your electronic devices, it is possible to do so where electricity is available, either in the bathroom block (at all times) or at the reception pavilion.
Enjoy the freshness of the forest and the blissfulness of a private shower surrounded by trees… You can get cold drinking water from the sink, but you’ll have to heat it to wash the dishes.
