Parc national de la Mauricie Enjoy the outdoors


Get back to nature at La Mauricie National Park, your base camp for all your outdoor adventures! Love the summer heat? Our hiking, canoeing, and waterfall combo is sure to seduce you. Prefer the snow? Grab your snowshoes or cross-country skis and enjoy our groomed hiking trails and heated shelters.
During the day, the park is beautiful; at night, it's magnificent! Some say that they've never seen so many stars. Watch constellations appear while gathered around a campfire or lying on a picnic table. Camping is the park's activity of choice. We have three campsites that can host tents, tent trailers, travel trailers, and motorhomes. Do you love falling asleep to the sound of water? A canoe-camping adventure might be for you. Halfway between a tent and a rustic cabin, Park Canada's oTENTik unit offers the perfect balance of home comforts and expansive wilderness. Our oTENTik units are available year-round! For large groups, Domaine Wabenaki-Andrew is a comfortable and welcoming space, also available in both summer and winter.
New in 2019, the Aqua Trek is a self-guided canoe or kayak ride, ideal for exploring Wapizagonke Lake. A refreshing activity on calm waters, filled with enriching discoveries!
During your stay, you can also check out our free activities with naturalists. They're not to be missed, and our team offers outings all summer. You're sure to make the most amazing discoveries with them! Check our schedules and meet the park's wild residents.
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.
