  • Discovered this winter for a walk in snowshoes. Wow! the beautiful landscapes, the silence when we advance in the snow, it's magic! from time to time small squirrels running around in the trees and can be seen in some places of the small traces... Fox?

  • Coming from Lake Saint Jean for a hundred kilometres along the 175 169 and then passing through it. Deserves to stop at least a few days to enjoy the spectacle of foliage if you are in season and activities that offers the information center. We can also be reached by bus from Quebec in half an hour. River meanders through the Valley deep V more than 500 meters and the forest is rich in maples and black spruce trees. Strong presence of moose and caribou. The entrance should be about 8 C $ but I can't tell you exactly why the 17 it's all free. Is a spectacular reserve just 30 minutes from the city that consists of a series of rather steep mountains that follow the path of the river Cartier for around fifty kilometres. Here the paths are very suggestive, is trekking Road between real tunnels through the trees and views appearing suddenly from clearings allowing views from the top of great impact. One of the most striking points is almost in the middle of the park itself where the informational complex for visits at the confluence of two rivers. Here the percentage of maple trees is very high and carmine red that covers completely the steep banks rising toward the flanks of the mountain up to mingle with yellow and finally to the dark green of the conifers at the top, has a few other comparisons. Really a vision of great visual impact. In the street that you walk into the city you can't resist doing some deviation which in few kilometres brings you in areas apparently silent lakes where the wild forest barrier is reflected in calm water mirrors. Some log home sits there in the clearings scattered waiting to be hired for a few days of life in the world of the forest. Strong smell of wood and resin in the air already warn that hint of snow is coming. Far away you feel did the deer or Growl moose in love, which must evidently be teeming around here, given the haunting display of danger appearing on signs at the side of the road. Perhaps here would deserve really spend a couple of days, then river rafting or canoeing in his famous windhover creeks. As always the distance between travelers and tourists grows and the lump in my throat grows when you gotta get back in the car having dedicated to this wonder only a few hours. Okay we'll do a reason, we must always consider that there are those who will never have either

  • Great outdoors is great. Beautiful scenery. Bathrooms and showers are very clean and well maintained. Sites are a good size, but gravel which is no big deal if you have a camper but if you have a tent, get a good sleeping pad. Staff are quite friendly and speak English also.
  • Since I'm 26 weeks pregnant we chose to take the "Le croisée", a 12 km path next to the water. What a beautiful landscape! We also had the chance to see a mom and baby moose in the lake and a cute porcupine on our way back. :) If you're looking for a relaxing and beautiful trail, go for it!
  • Fantastic hiking. Stayed on the shorter trails, but still managed to see all manner of rivers, streams, mountains, and other beautiful scenery.
  • This was a very scenic park, although a $17 entrance fee may not be worth it. There was a bus driver that thought it would be funny to pretend to hit us with his bus, which was very concerning. The roads were not marked very well, as it was hard to tell where we were on the map. The visitor center was average, but it could use a larger souvenir section.
  • Great park !! Various things to do! Hiking, kayaking, rustic camping! Friendly staff at the information centre! Everything was great. I've seen many wild animals there.
