Protected area. Enriching nature experiences.

Plaisance—the name evokes the pleasantness of a landscape broken by bays, ponds, and marshes. In spring, Plaisance puts on a performance with thousands of Canada Geese. Come summer, it's a paradise for ducks, herons, ospreys, and dozens of other species. It's also the Ottawa River's soft breeze that makes the tall grasses bend and toss in a wave-like roll across the Petite Presqu'île, not far from the campground.

Park access authorization

There is a limit to the number of visitors that can enter a national park on any given day. It is therefore strongly recommended that you purchase your right of access online before a visit or that you acquire an annual pass. This guarantees you access to the park, will ensure a smoother arrival at the site and avoid unnecessary travel when the maximum capacity is reached. It can be purchased up to 30 days before a visit. You may be denied access to a sector, a trail, or an activity if a parking lot is full or if the maximum capacity has been reached.
