Parc national de la Pointe-Taillon
Accessible and rewarding activities
The sound of the waves of Lac Saint-Jean, kilometres of sandy shoreline, one of Quebec’s most beautiful beaches, an outdoor playground for the kids, a volleyball court… a true paradise for families! You can go sailing on Lac Saint-Jean when it is still and on Rivière Taillon on board a canoe, kayak or a pedal boat. Since the park’s bike path is on level ground, you can go on comfortable bike rides with your children. It is also a nice big-wheel stroller accessible place for walking.
Theatre events, activities with a focus on animals, a visit with a park warden– all sorts of discovery activities sare in store for the youngsters. In case of bad weather, certain activities can take place in a sheltered spot away from the damp or cold. And don’t miss the exhibition! National parks abound with wildlife: moose, beaver, grouse, and so much more. Take advantage of your visit to do some wildlife watching!
Accommodations that the whole family can really enjoy
Campsites are accessible on foot or by bike (2, 4 or 20 km) and we lend you a trailer free of charge to transport your luggage. A number of them are located along Lac Saint-Jean. The surroundings are incredible! You can also experience the comfort of a ready-to-camp tent. A new campground in Camp-de-Touage-Les-Îles sector is now accessible.
More ready-to-camp tents and fully-equipped cabins are located outside the national park, in the Les Amicaux sector, very close to the sandy shores of Lac Saint-Jean.
