Parc national d'Opémican

News

It’s difficult to remain unmoved by such an awe-inspiring territory. Bordered on either side by Lac Témiscamingue and Lac Kipawa, Parc national d’Opémican aims to protect a sample of the Southern Laurentians natural region. Covering an area of 252.5 km2, the park is divided into three distinct sectors: the Rivière-Kipawa sector, the Pointe-Opémican sector, and the Lac-Marsac sector.

The grand opening of Parc national d’Opémican will take place in 2019! Rivière Kipawa sector was already inaugurated in 2018, and Pointe Opémican sector will be unveiled for the 2019 season. A campground with some 60 sites under the tall pines, a small village of 11 Étoile ready-to-camps near Lac Temiscamingue and its sandy shores, a water sports paradise, an ideal family destination, a promenade in the historic heartland of timber driving – Pointe Opémican sector is a collection of pleasures for young and old alike in a thoroughly enchanting setting.

The Rivière Kipawa sector experience will also be enhanced with the addition of a small hebertism circuit for children near La Grande Chute and the availability of four Étoile ready-to-camp sites near the walls of Lac Temiscamingue. Whether by canoe, kayak, bike, or on foot, the landscapes of Lac Kipawa, its famous river, and of Lac Temiscamingue will suddenly become accessible from the small village of Laniel.

With the opening of Pointe Opémican, Parc national d’Opémican will quickly become a popular destination for families, and its spectacular backcountry will attract adventurers as well. The extent of cultural heritage will surprise visitors, whether along the Opémican heritage circuit or through the Anishinabeg presence on the land.

Parc national d’Opémican will become a unique discovery site, characterized by the dominant presence of tall white and red pines, symbols of the junction between the territory’s deciduous and boreal areas. This park has elements essential to the composition of a remarkable landscape: rugged and relatively low topography and many rock walls, which are found mainly along Lac Témiscamingue.
