Réserve faunique de Port-Daniel
Accessible and rewarding activities
On your way to Percé Rock, why not stop over in this little corner of paradise? On Rivière Port-Daniel, a real gem of emerald green, you can do some day fishing for salmon or opt for a fishing stay. An exceptional opportunity to be sure! And right by the Registration Centre you’ll find a fishing pond for the youngsters where they’re allowed to catch two speckled trout. It's a nice way for them to learn while having fun! You can also fish for brook trout in the wildlife reserve.
With the children, take advantage of your visit to do some wildlife watching. Check out the beaver, moose and common loon. Explore the easy-level Plaisance hiking trail. On the way, you’ll see a salmon pool, small waterfalls, and flat rocks providing a perfect resting spot for picknicking. Does your family love a good challenge? The observation deck of La Montée trail offers a spectacular view of Port Daniel Bay. You can also go for bike rides on the forest trails.
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. Small game hunting is a perfect introduction to this activity for a youngster. Fancy a more imposing beast? Why not head off to hunt some moose or deer?
Accommodations that the whole family can really enjoy
Fully-equipped lakeside cabins sare only a short drive away. Once on site, you can set off aboard a rowboat or kayak, play on the shore, or have a barbecue. You won’t want to miss the newly renovated Chalet du lac de l'Île. Accessible only by water, it offers absolute privacy. During the day, you can sit on the porch and cast your line, or board your rowboat, moored directly to the cabin.
A Family Fishing package is also offered at Réserve faunique de Port-Daniel at a very attractive price. It’s one of the very best deals on the market! What’s more, every child between 9 and 12 years of age will receive on-site fishing tips from an expert.
The camping area is well suited for families. It’s easily accessible, and you have a choice of serviced or semi-serviced campsites. This is also where you can experience the comfort of a Étoile ready-to-camp tent. There’s a children’s playground, a community hall, a convenience store and an equipment rental centre.
