We came to The national park as our first stop on a relaxing road trip from Toronto through Quebec. The park ended up being the highlight of our trip. The landscape is beautiful and well kept, the air fresh and aromatic and the sounds peaceful and serene. Definitely worth renting a canoe to experience the lake- canoe over to the... More

We spent a day in the Mauricie parc and decided to rent two canoes at Wapizagonke. You canoe for about an hour, "park" the boat at a beach and hike another hour up the hill to beautiful Waber falls. Bring your beach shoes and your bathing suits to fully enjoy the falls. Another hour hike back to the boat, and... More

Lovets of nature will simply keep stick to visiting this beautiful park. Either doing the canoe camping or normal camping the views at the day and night are simply amazing... The cons are the service... The recptionist was more interested to rid of us instead of providing information of the park... And the guys in the boat rent were to... More

This is a wonderful place for nature lovers. Lots of small animals and birds to see around, also lots of nice places to swim. We mostly loved the Shawinigan picnic area, after a picnic (or before) you can hike, swim or just relax. Make sure you visit on a sunny day. We sure will return here!

Beautiful park. Stayed at wapigazonke. I would recommend checking which park gate you should enter as I accidentally arrived at the east gate and it takes about 1 hour to drive through the park. The cascades trail beside the waterfall is amazing and if you want to see it quieter go in the morning as there are literally bus loads... More

We stayed for 9 days in July at the Mistagamce Campground at side A16. The site was beautiful and very private. Unfortunately we had rain every day except for the last day. The mosquitos were crazy. I would suggest going in the fall to avoid the bugs. This is a beautiful park. We canoed most days. Lake Wapizagonke is huge... More

Went for a day trip to this National Parc with my family on the occasion of my Mom s 90 birthday. I know the Parc well from the days of my youth - canoeing and swimming in Lac Wapi ! We first drove up to the lookout at L lle au Pins to see the view. Then we went back... More

We visited this park last week during our stay in Saint Paulin. The gentleman in the visitors center was very helpful. We were grateful that he spoke English! Armed with our map we took off on the 20 mile trip around the park. We stopped at all the places he had marked for us and took a few short hikes... More

I have been to this park 6 times, 5 of them were camping trips and I must say, every single time was wonderful! The campgrounds themselves alone are quite secluded, there are people around but you don't see them much, only when they walk by. Everything is kept very clean from the bathrooms to the campgrounds themselves. There are many... More

This park is only a couple of hours drive from Montreal centre and it is a beautiful park full of trees, lake, and rivers. We stayed in one of Parks Canada' new "O'tentiks and it was fantastic! We've never stayed in a pre made tent when camping but as we planned this last minute and could find no cars to... More
