  • A magnificent marc that overlooks the river St Maurice, grans space completely wooded, superb in the fall! Attention from early October, 75% of the Park is closed and only the first two parking lots (and associated hiking). The Park is really beautiful, and splendid colors. We did the walk indicated by the guide who took us on an elevated point of view = MEKENAC.

  • One of the peculiarities of this park is the 68 km road that connects the 2 inputs of Saint-Mathieu-du-by that of St-Jean-des-Piles. This is nice because all curves and descents and climbs, and it connects several lakes and lookouts. The ideal is to stop at one of the 2 inputs to obtain a map of the Park and discuss the possibilities of activities according to your taste (30 minutes to 7: 00 and canoeing hiking). In addition to camping, there are several hikes to do and 3 places where you can rent boats. We did 2 easy hikes, waterfalls, and Stephen's Lake, which are less than an hour each. We appreciated the viewpoints of île - aux-Pins, the Vide-Bouteille and the passage. Rental of canoes at the Shewenegan site allows a 1 hour trip on the Wapizagonke Lake around a small island or 3 hours if you go to about half of the Lake. Lake view is superb at this place.

  • Park with trails suitable for young children, sleep in camping absolutely, many opportunities of landscaped picnic, beach, games and small paths, rental of channels to the great Lake Edward. more leafy than river fishing or vegetation Wapizagonke campground is more sparse. Another area great with children: Shawinigan, the waterfalls trail that climbs but the loop isn't very long and the trail is splendid with possibility to swim uphill.
