With an abundance of lakes, rivers, mountains and cliffs, this park, which measures over 70 km² (27 sq. mi.), is an exceptional outdoor recreation site.

Over 70 km (43.5 miles) of forest trails through different sectors, a gorgeous landscape and a full range of outdoor activities make this wildlife preserve a well-kept secret. In the summer, breathe in the fresh air while canoeing, paddleboarding, fishing, rock climbing, doing a ropes course, inflatable rafting or rabaska canoeing. Create your own fishing stories to share with family or friends. Three lakes are seeded in the spring for your fishing pleasuret. Admire the view from a lookout point along a hiking trail. Get a good night's rest at a campground or cottage. In the winter, go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing through the park along a trail suited to your level of physical ability.
