With its 150 lakes, La Mauricie National Park offers many opportunities to experience for yourself the true essence of nature. Around thirty lakes are accessible both off of the Parkway and through a network of canoe trails.
It is possible to rent a boat from one of our three location centres. Row-and-go canoes are also a good way to explore less easily accessible places without having to portage.
