Saguenay Fjord info

Saguenay Fjord Routes anyone? I am looking at riding up in that area in July.
Please suggest places to camp, stay, eat and visit etc
Cheers

Route? Both sides of Riviere Saguenay (170 and 172) are entertaining. 138 along the St. Laurence is scenic although a bit straight and efficient.

Many gravel roads in the area too. Roads to the NE seem to curve and climb more than roads to the SW which seem flatter and straighter.

Parc national des Monts-Valin has nice camping. Water at the park office and outhouses at the camp areas. Bear scat just everywhere and a metal frame to hang food out of reach.

Just downhill from the park is a restaurant and boulangerie although I don't recall any name for it other than "restaurant, boulangerie".

There are also other campgrounds with more comforts throughout the area. Lac Saint-Jean is surrounded by the usual restaurants of a lake-side community.

I might be coming down on 167. I as thinking like a loop out of Ottawa and than down 138 to Quebec City but I am not entirely sure. I was close to Saguenay a couple of years ago and did not go up there to explore so I feel I need to check it out
