Not a long drive from the city and you end up in this rugged wilderness. Excellent hiking trails, well marked and lots of scenery. Great place to take the dogs for a hike. Note that there is NO cell phone reception in the park.

The park is a very scenic and great place to have a picnic. The beaches to the water could be more friendly to get in and out of but not a bad place to swim,(when the water is warm)

North beach camp site is a great camping spot for families with young or older children. Access to Alouette lake day area is within minutes of walking to. The sites are private- semi private & are kept clean & maintained.
