We are avid campers and have been to most of the car accessible National Parks across Canada - we will not go back to La Mauricie and you might want to think twice;
(- con) 2018 the park is under significant reconstruction so the entire...More
This trip requires paddling and walking and is a great adventure with some sports. It’s beautiful and worth it. You can rent a kayak or canoe, I paid 50 Canadian for a full day single kayak.
It’s about 4.5km on the water which took me...More
I will start to say that with over 30 years camping we had no problems with enforcement at campground. Arrived, got to our clean gravel campgroung. Parked van (class B but small (westfalia type) on gravel away from fire pit. At 7 P.M., we were...More
This national park is really nice.
We did the trail which lead us to the Waber falls. First you have to row 5km by canoe. This took us 1.5 hours because of a strong wind - it was very exhausting. Then we continued on the...More

Disappointing that this is the only
NP in Canada that does not allow dogs. Even more brutal is that this fact is not posted ANYWHERE on the website OR the downloadable visitor guide. Not one word about this. We drove over 6 hours with our...More
We were excited to visit this national Park after spending a fabulous time at Grasslands, Banff, Jasper, Pukaskwa and Forillon National parks. We had hiked many trails and had experienced the beauty and incredible vistas of our national parks, with our dog, in all the...More
As you drive through this park, there are a number of lakes and rivers. They offer great views as well as swimming beaches. One of the beaches had a very nice restroom and changing area.. The drive through the center of the park was closed...More
Would have given a much higher rating had it not been for the roadworks being carried out which meant that half the park was inaccessible and there were big trucks constantly travelling in and out of the park, at high speeds, from 7.00 am to...More

It depends on what you wish to do. It takes roughly 2 hours door to door from Montreal to the Park and the same from the Park to Quebec City. You can drive through the Park in roughly one hour ( it is a horseshoe shape with entry points at both ends) but doing so won't really allow you to see the vistas and sites. To enjoy these, you must get off the main road and enter specific areas. You could, for example, enter through the St-Mathieu gate and go swimming in the Wapizagonke Falls. It's an easy 10 minute hike from the parking to the falls, which you walk up to find a spot to swim in its shallow pools. If swimming isn't your thing, there are canoe rentals all around the park and hiking trails for everyone. So can it be done in a day? yes, with some planning and at least 4 hours alloted to the park itself (that would include entry process and finding your way in and out). Enjoy!
