We stayed in La Malbaie, and this park was just a short (or medium short) drive away. It is a beautiful area. You can camp and hike, but we took the boat trip up the river, which was stunning.

The views are just breathtaking! Watch for bugs, but take the time to take in the views. Be aware that when it comes to sharing the path with bicycles, it may mean the path is flat... Beware of little reptiles greeting you on your way...More
