  • Great place for outdoor only minutes from downtown Montreal. Beautiful park to attend as much summer as yesterday. Beautiful kayak trips are offered at more than reasonable prices. To see!

  • This provincial park located in the middle of the St. Lawrence River offers a set of surprising anyone who dares go there. Well done, well maintained, offering multiple services to outdoor enthusiasts, this site deserves to be known and frequent. You can walk on well marked trails. Several picnic tables are made available to users. There are also modules for the children. You can also travel by bike, do Nordic skiing in winter or canoe and kayak in the summer. It is possible to rent this type of equipment. A pretty Pavilion was erected for this purpose at the center of the sainte-Marguerite Island, with the usual services and parking. There is also a playground with services for trailers and RVs. You can play golf on this land located on the nearby island. An IBC is the players. How to say? A hidden treasure...

  • The Parc Des Iles de Poucherville is around Montreal as the Ville de Boucherville is 17 km from Montreal. Is a wonderful beautiful nature! Unfortunately it only works on Canadian summer season. Have kayak, bicycle and boat rent. In addition you can run at Parc, doing exercises and view the pets natives. It's too beautiful!

  • Nice park for hiking and seeing the river but there were very few times on our 2.5km hike without highway noises being the predominant noise. There were tons of deer and a few geese while we were hiking. We went on a rainy spring day and barely saw any other people there. Lots of places to picnic, which is great. Overall, I will be going again and would recommend it for a cute short nature walk close to the city.
  • A natural reserve nestled in the middle of the St Lawrence River. A great place for walks, camping, kayaking, fishing, and especially enjoying wildlife such as birding. Farmers on the Islands do pollute and they use air canons to scare birds at times taking away from the overall experience. Industrial farming has not been abolished as promised so you never know what chemicals you and the wildlife are being exposed to. Get ready to eat mouthfuls of dirt as irresponsible employees drive by you like maniacs. Irresponsible visitors such as baiters have come into conflict with families but they get away with it as park authorities don'T react to such incidents. Basically they protect the ill behavior of their employees and the most damaging visitors.
  • Nice park and Huttopia camping but, Be certain to inform yourselves of any pertinent information that you may have questions for. Why? Because the young adults that work there have almost zero initiative to inform park-goers, campers, boat renters of any additional important issues. 1. Safety related issues are of low priority, such as informing guests the current state of the river level and strength of the current. * A parapelegic man rented (5-july) a solo kayak (alongside his spouse) who upon returning to the quai rolled over and was able to grab and hang on to a low-hanging tree branch while waiting for help to arrive. One of his friends/family members on shore immediately notified the two young men working the rental booth of the situation. They did call for emergency help (a Sepaq rescue boat to come), but did NOTHING to leave their post to go to the quai fifteen seconds away to try and help the man. The disabled man was hanging on for twenty minutes waiting for help to arrive while his spouse tried to stay by his side in the strong river current in her own kayak and as his family/friends from shore looked on. It took two park guests to finally grab a rowboat and go help the man, then the Sepaq boat arrived and helped retrieve the man. Fortunately the man was ok, but somewhat blue after being stuck in the cold water for twenty minutes. 2. We looked for and saw no information regarding that in the event of an emergency who you can call (obviously 911). The Huttopia camping is on Île de Grosbois, accesible by a small cable boat (bac à câble) from 9am to 9pm during the summer...the big question is who do you call after-hours if you need to extract someone from the island in a hurry. Yes, there is 911, but you would think that Sepaq would provide clear, visible information and a 24-hour number to call to facilitate and speed up emergency service to the exact location...what if someone does not have a mobile phone?? 3. We called to reserve two nights stay in a Huttopia tent knowing that the tents are a 45 minute walk (with children) to the site. I asked the lady who took our reservation if they had hand-carts to rent or loan for our belongings and she said no. The day of arrival, we find out that yes they do loan carts after we had considerably down-sized and left many things at home. It seems that whatever employee answers the phone at a given moment knows a little of this and the next person to serve you knows something else. Not impressed for a national park. One star for the beautiful location.
  • Large, calm and proper! Can make BBQ. Long cycling piste. Can rent bycicle also. Golf. Have entry fees 8.50$/person.
  • Boring place. Expensive to rent any equipment. Do not recommend.
