From October 11 to December 14, the facilities are closed and there are no services in the park. Visitors who choose to access the trails are responsible for their own safety and must be self-sufficient in any emergency that may arise.

Please note that emergency services may be unavailable or significantly delayed during this period.

Until May 2023: Seasonal closure from the Saint-Mathieu-du-Parc entrance to the Rivière-à-la-Pêche service centre.

Cellular telephone service is not available throughout all of La Mauricie National Park.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY: 819-536-3180.

As well as forests of conifers and hardwoods, La Mauricie will treat you to touches of azure: the Park has more than 150 lakes of various sizes. During the day, let the haunting cry of the common loon thrill your spirit. Nearby, pools at the foot of waterfalls invite you to come for a swim. When evening falls, it's the hooting of the barred owl or the great horned owl that lulls you to sleep.
