Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata
Accessible and rewarding activities
The park offers a number of hiking and biking trails, including big-wheel stroller accessible Grey-Owl trail (L‘Anse-à-William campground). It will take you to the sandy shores of Lac Témiscouata, a wonderful spot for a picnic. A ferry service also provides access to Le Petit Témis bike path, on the other side of Lake Témiscouata. Depending on the waterway, you can explore nature on board a canoe, a kayak, a pedal boat or a stand up paddle board.
Theatre events, activities with a focus on animals, guided watercraft activities – all sorts of discovery activities are in store for the youngsters. Those who are 10 years of age or older can take part in real archeological excavations: an extraordinary and unique opportunity indeed! National parks abound with wildlife: bald eagle, white-tailed deer, beaver, and so much more. Take advantage of your visit to do some wildlife watching!
To be discovered during the summer: the Curious-by-nature trail, the first in a series of family-friendly trails at Camping du Grand-Lac-Touladi. This 0.7 km circuit set aside for children and their families features six discovery stations, each telling the story of a moment in the history of the territory encompassed by the park. A must for families!
