Accessible and rewarding activities
To the delight of the youngsters, at Lac Saint-Bernard campground, there is a children’s playground. You can relax on the lake aboard a canoe or a kayak and even sneak up on a heronry, nestled on a small island. An impressive sight indeed!
Take advantage of your visit to do some wildlife watching as well. Check out the hare, golden eagle and loon. Explore the hiking trails, including Six-Chutes trail, easily accessible from route 1. It will lead you to an observation tower where you can admire the waterfowl of Lac Bourassa. It is also a nice place for a picnic. The Falaise trail is also easily accessible from Saint-Bernard campground.
Here the fish are always biting, the children are happy, and brook trout abound! There are also lake trout, splake, landlocked salmon, and much more. You can choose day fishing or a fishing stay.
Come fall, you can introduce your youngsters aged 12 and older to hunting traditions. Orange vest-clad and hunting rifle in hand, watch out for ruffed grouse, spruce grouse and snowshoe hare if you’re looking for small game. Fancy a more imposing beast? Why not head off to hunt some moose?
