Accessible and rewarding activities

Everyone’s enthusiastic about the Jacques-Cartier River! The whole family can navigate its calm waters in a canoe or a kayak. And you can do some fishing too!

Accommodations that the whole family can really enjoy

You can choose from among our serviced campsites at Camping Les Alluvions and Camping La Bétulaie. These are also places where you can experience the comfort of a ready-to-camp tent. You will be close to the departure of many trails, as well as an area with picnic tables and a barbecue.

Have a great time with your family in a fully-equipped classic cabin or in one of our Écho cabins. Looking for something altogether different? Enjoy the rustic charm of a yurt.

In winter, the family is always more than welcome

If you spend the night at the park, avail yourself of the comfort of a yurt or a cabin. Easy- and intermediate-level winter hiking and snowshoeing trails are available, including Chemin de la Vallée where you can take your kids for a sleigh ride. An inner tube slide is located close to the Discovery and Visitors Centre, for bigger and smaller kids alike. And the Centre remains accessible by car all winter long, offering information, an exhibition, a shop, washrooms, snacks and warm soup! Come and warm up inside!
