Be on the lookout for traffic signs this summer. Eight new speed zones will make the Parkway safer.

Take the opportunity to admire some of the most beautiful landscapes of La Mauricie National Park. For two years, the lookouts have been featured so that the road can reveal marvellous discoveries, just like when one is on a trail.

In addition, a flexible pedestrian beacon now more clearly indicates the Rivière à la Pêche pedestrian crossing.

Enjoy your travel on the Parkway!

La Mauricie National Park is officially open. Visitors can now enjoy all its facilities, which are functional, safe and accessible.

By the end of May, our teams will complete certain cosmetic work, such as the removal of fallen branches on the camping ground or the thorough cleaning of shelters. We thank all our visitors for their understanding.

Have a great start to the season in this first-rate location to connect with nature: YOUR La Mauricie National Park.

Complete Opening of the Park
Postponed Until May 19

Because of the persistent cold weather and snow, the park's management will proceed with only a partial opening of the services this Friday, May 13, 2016. The Saint-Jean-des-Piles entrance and the Rivière-à-la-Pêche sector will be open, including the Rivière-à-la-Pêche campground. The hiking trails in this sector and in the Mekinac sector will be accessible. Please note, however, that boat rental services and the Parkway will be closed.

The official complete opening of the park is thus postponed until Thursday, May 19, 2016. The main services, including the Saint-Mathieu-du-Parc entrance and the Parkway, will then be accessible and safe.

To find out about the progress of the work for the park's opening, follow us on our Facebook page or continue to visit our website on a regular basis.
