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

We needed some wilderness after visiting some cute crafty towns. It. Was early in the season and a weekday so we had no problems getting a site for our trailer in the empty campground. Everything was clean and clearly marked with free showers even. We did several short hikes. My favorite was lac solitaire. 5.5 km. Of ups and downs... More

The staff in welcome center is very professional. She can give you the suggestion based on your agenda. You can enjoy swimming in nature because many lakes are allowed to swim. The lanes for cyclist is best designed. All in all, it's one of the best national parks I ever visited. Even better than Mont-Tremblant! C'était tellement bon!

Rivière à la Pêche oTENTik tent gave an amazing experience. To be honest it was my first experience camping in a cabin. The cabin was very well maintained and super clean by any standards. Considering a campground , the shower bathroom and other facilities were superbly maintained. We had minimal camping gear - we were told to bring blankets, pillows,... More

We have a second home in the region and come here often in winter to do some cross-country skiing. The scenery is fantastic and the trails are always in exceptionnal condition. Fall hiking is also a very good option. in both cases, you have a multitude of trails of varying lenght and difficulty but their all very interesting.

We spent two weeks around Quebec visiting National park. This one was the best one for sure. It's full of activities, hiking, kayaking, and much more for every level. We stayed just one day in the park and we made some little hiking but I'll suggest just to do one single hike for all day long because a lot of... More

This is a canoers paradise! Gorgeous lakes, clean, swimmable. The canoeing is amazing. There is a rental place for canoes and kayaks but I don't know the rates because I came with my own boat. There are several kms of portage trails between lakes for the more adventurous. The camping is great and there is a lot of forest space... More

We spent just one day hiking and driving in the Parc National du Canada de la Mauricie -- and easily could have spent more time to camp and canoe there. We went on a 5.5 km hike with more uphill than expected but sufficient views of vistas and lakes to be worth it. About 1/2 way along the well-marked and... More

We spent 1 day in the park and are impressed by its beauty and richness. You can go there hike, kajak or bike. Check their website for more infos. Easy accessible park road for cars, entry fee is reasonable.
