Services available in Radisson
Links - Email addresses & websites:
When you arrive in town, you should definitely stop at
the Tourist Information building. This is on the left as you come in to the main
part of town. The staff there are extremely helpful, and are bilingual. They
will help you with anything you want, such as booking a dam tour and accommodations,
where to go in town, what to do, etc. They are open June 15 through Labour Day (first
Monday in September). Phone (819) 638-8687. Email and website -- see above.
There is one gas station in town. In August 2002 gas
here was 86.9¢ per liter, and diesel was 79.9¢ per liter. Fuel is also
available at the airport (see James Bay Road Guide).
The gas station is also the only general store. Groceries,
ice, and other items are available here. There is one other store in town, which
sells mainly souvenir type stuff. Expect higher prices than you're used to, as all the
stuff has to come up the James Bay Road.
There are three hotels and one campground:
The campground is located just up the hill from the Tourist Information office.
Turn left at the Tourist Info office, stop there to register for the campground,
and then continue up the hill. The campground is spacious and clean. Washrooms,
showers and water are available. There are 30 sites, 16 with electricity
hookups. (819) 638-8687.
