Réserve faunique de Rimouski
Accessible and rewarding activities
The perfect wildlife reserve for your budding anglers! An apprentice angler site was set up specifically for youngsters near the Lac Rimouski Registration Centre. There are wharfs with railings where children can learn about fishing safely. Fishing gear is provided, and experts are on hand to help out. There are also many trails, making the river easily accessible for wade fishing. You can also go fishing for brook trout aboard a rowboat on many lakes.
Réserve faunique de Rimouski abounds with wildlife: moose, beaver, loon, and so much more. Take advantage of your visit to do some wildlife watching with the kids! Follow L’Explorateur trail to reach an observation deck and be dazzled by the panoramic view from on high. Big-wheel stroller accessible Lac Rimouski trail will lead you to an observation site. Lac Rimouski is also a perfect place for family water activities Canoes and kayaks are available for rent. You can also take some time here to visit the exhibition entitled 50 ans de la Réserve son histoire d’hier à aujourd’hui (50 years of the reserve: its history from yesterday to today) presented at Pavillon de la relève.
In the fall, with your offspring 12 years of age and older, you can continue the hunting tradition. Your budding hunters will be ever so spoiled! For archery and crossbow hunting, specific areas have been set up for young people, with adapted watchtowers, saltlicks, and unobstructed vistas for better hunting. If you like small game hunting, watch out for ruffed grouse, spruce grouse and snowshoe hare, keeping your orange hunting garment on and your rifle in hand. Fancy a more imposing beast? Why not head off to hunt some moose?

The Lac Rimouski area is really family friendly. The fully-equipped cabins can sleep up to eight people. You can also navigate aboard a rowboat or a kayak, play on the shore, have a barbecue, or simply relax.
