In 2019, the Parkway rehabilitation will require the closure of the section between the Esker and the Wapizagonke Picnic Area. Although both entrances will be open, it will not be possible to cross the park from one entrance to the other, so please plan your visit accordingly. Click here for details.

La Mauricie National Park is located north of Trois-Rivières. Halfway between Montréal and Québec City, it is a two hour drive from both cities.

While it is seductive in spring and summer because of waterfalls and many sports opportunities, it is delightful in autumn with brilliant fall colours. In winter, snowshoe excursions provide opportunities for getting out into nature. It’s the perfect place for a day trip or a weekend of camping!
