  • must-see; Chose the high tide period to see more birds. A nice trail run this park with several observation points. Very accessible with children there are always birds to see, but the site is very beautiful too. We went there in October .it takes 3 hours if you take the time to stop in the cabins of observation, so it go soon enough

  • Very nice natural space, where everything is done to encourage the observation of birds. For lovers, I advise to have binoculars and a bird book, and to choose his visit according to the tides (shown on the site). For the general public, it is a park for a lovely walk in the pond edge. Can be done in summer as in winter, if you equip themselves accordingly. And can be visited several times a year, to enjoy the view of different species of birds! Almost all observatories are accessible for the disabled. About 6 km to the complete loop.

  • If you like bird-watching then you could spend all day here. I recommend looking at their website which has information in both French and English and a calendar showing the best times of day to go. I...  more »

  • Amazing place. You can see so many birds and they're all there to be seen, not hiding like some places!! Take the time to walk all 6km around the lake. Really worth it.
  • Excellent experience, highly recommended. Lunch in the middle at Mios must be experienced (chicken and potatoes).
  • There is likelihood that we came there off-season (in september), but there wasn't much to see from the closeup besides the opossum.
  • The reserve takes care of bookings for the canoe. Nice and friendly staff. However the trip is creepy with coming out of the water and trees that soar above. You see through the water. It was not very reassuring. Couple of beginner struggled to turn (no accompanying for 10 km to work around tree trunks in the water). I don't think not renew or advise...

  • For the reserve, it takes about 4 hours to go around. The course is super nice. The setting is very nice and the birds are present and very visible without disturbing them as far. Just be observant and quiet. Be careful not to pass after loud children. For canoeing. Very quiet and easy route for all. A nice and relaxing. About 2:30 in downhill. Very cool staff. In short a full day. I highly recommend you do at least one of the two.
