We stopped in Trois Rivieres for two days especially to come up to La Mauricie to go canoeing. We also wanted to see the park and the surrounding area and both were beautiful. We went to Wapizagonke (too bad it wasn't also the name of a major city or sports team - then maybe I could pronounce it). At Wapizagonke,... More

One of the best parks in the system and often ignored by many people. Beautiful lakes and super services. To get the most out of it visit the official website. Also open in the winter.

Drove from Trois Rivieres to the park . Travelled through traditional small quebecois villages, beautiful and very hospitable people. At the end we got to the park and were astonished with the beauty and abundance of the natural resources. We didn t camp and used a day pass. We spent 8 hours to go through the scenic paths and walks... More

Still great after so many years. Must be my 40th time there. Awesome campsites shady and calm, specially at Wapizagonke area. Great hike paths, fantastic views and superb landscapes. Ideal for family, but also for couples. Chute Waber is a must ( have to do 1 h of canoeing + 1 h walk to get there but it's worth the... More

The roads in this park are well-maintained. We enjoyed great scenery and tried to imagine how all of the various shades of green would look in the fall (Guess we'll have to come back and find out). A young lady at the Info Center was very helpful. The parkway is 62 km and can easily be done in about 3... More

An absolute must if you're in the Montreal/Quebec area. It's about equidistant from each and so beautiful you won't want to leave. Beautiful walks, breathtaking views and areas to take a swim in the lake. There are many picnic areas, also. I will go back anytime I'm in Canada.

I go to this Park at least 3 times a year. Twice in summer and once in fall. I have seen the area around Lac Gabet and the areas closest to the park's entrances. I have also seen the magnifcent view of Iles Aux Pins. I don't go deep inside the park because I do not like canoeing. There is... More

One of the nicest surprises of our trip to Quebec was Mauricie National Park and the vistas of fall colors which turned early this year (2013). Approximately 15 minutes from Shawinigan, we drove in and around the loop, stopping at several hiking areas and overlooks. An easy yet lovely hike is the Cascades, taking you very close to running streams... More

Spent a wonderful afternoon at the Cascades (falls). These weren't waterfalls as you would see, say at Niagara. The flow of water (in July) was gentle enough in some areas for little kids to play in yet strong enough in other areas that a man could be knocked off his feet. The water flowed such that it formed small, shallow... More

I've made a number of trips to this national park and each time I come away with great memories, particularly on the incredibly friendly and helpful staff. I recently traveled to Mauricie for a cross-country ski race (Le Yeti) with my kids and left one pair of skis behind. The Parc Canada employee took the time to find my phone... More
