  • Ballad in cross-country ski, snowshoe, sled dog, bike snow, ice in winter skating... Landscape rural breathtaking, medium-sized mountain of the lovely Appalachian under the snow. Well cover

  • Great place in any season! I now have my annual card to go there as often as possible!

  • We did the fat Bike rental and travelled 15 km, or the distance needed to make the trip to the chalet, borrow the Draveur South trail to the bridge-bench, cross and return to the chalet by way of the Valley. These trails are shared by skiers, snowshoers and hikers making trails inside of variable land... but so well signposted and broad enough to perform safe overruns for all users that are there. The staff is very nice and Philippe, at reception takes all the time it takes to properly inform us about the State of the trail, the distances and the possible difficulties you might encounter according to your sporting requirement. This route runs along the Jacques-Cartier River on one side or the other. Beautiful decor, fun guaranteed!

  • Breath taking and abundantly green. Just as you would expect from a provincial park. Almost full wilderness camping available; canoe, kayak, rafts and tube rentals include bus ride up the river; river has a few category rapids but from KM 18 done, is mostly calm enough to bring a strong 6 year old. This location is accessible in certain spots. The main office and some stops along the river. Main building (KM10) is were you will find the information about tours on caves and various kids activities like discovering water bugs. Started at 10am. Some activities start earlier. Washrooms are available throughout the park (at least until KM18) and they are busy but well maintained. Lots of hiking trails for various degrees of capabilities. The guidebook provides a great description of what you can expect in terrain, distance and time to complete. I did not see any English guidebooks. Single lane driving can be a little treacherous at some points and I can imagine annoying on very busy days. Average speed is 30km/h on gravel road, 50km/h on paved. Very few information boards are in English but some staff speak English.
  • I wish we had longer to visit. The park was beautiful and quiet. We hiked two of the trails, and only encountered four people the whole time we were hiking. It really was nice to enjoy some solitude after a couple of days touring Quebec City.
  • Close to Québec city, a 45 minutes ride. It is a real pearl! All the hikes are great. The "Sentier des loups" is a must. If it's not your first time, don't be shy and try the "Scotora" worth it! The view to the north is breath taking at the end
  • Really the best park in Quebec, lots of trails to try. Perfect for biking, hiking and camping. But what I love in this park is canoeing. Be prepared to spend more than one or 2 days there. Definitely worth it.
  • If you're in Québec city....and you like nature It's a MUST even if only to drive the 33km senic route, stop for a picnik and head back.
