Lying on the banks of the Saint-Maurice, this village has retained its boater soul where life is rocked by the rhythm of water, currents and wind, while generously opening the door to the famous La Mauricie National Park. A charming village to discover on land as well as on water, year round! We are easily seduced by this oasis of tranquility, the ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts.
Saint-Jean-des-Piles is affectionately nicknamed “P’tites Piles”, in reference to its neighbor opposite Grandes-Piles, or the capital of canoe and oar manufacturing!
Saint-Jean-des-Piles offers astonishing viewpoints for sailing lovers. As for fishing enthusiasts, they are well served with a great variety of species, including walleye. Several launching options are possible for an adventure on this welcoming body of water that stretches over 35 km, from the Grand-Mère bridge to the Manigances rapids. You don’t have the soul of a captain?
Peckish? Whether before, during or after a day enjoying the waves, a hike in the park or a snowmobile ride, Saint-Jean-des-Piles invites you to its table!

Take a trip to the Délice des vents to stock up on food before heading to the Étienne-Bellemare park where you can picnic, surrounded by sculptures, with a breathtaking view of the river and the village of Grandes-Piles !
