Revel in the wonders of nature

Nestled along the largest and most majestic lake in the region, Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata invites you to enjoy the outdoors and to contemplate nature. Hiking, biking, boating and discovery activities let you fully appreciate this magnificent protected territory. The park is also a superb place to pitch your tent and snooze peacefully under the stars. And if you don’t have any camping gear, the Huttopia ready-to-camp tents offer everything you need for a hassle-free stay.

Getting hot outside? The water’s fine!

With nearly one kilometre of fine sand, the beach of Pohénégamook is among the most beautiful beaches in Quebec. With your family, with your sweetheart or just on your own, you can go swimming, rent canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and paddleboards, and even camp on site (unserviced lots) with an RV, trailer or tent. Plus, your kids will be thrilled to try out one of the largest inflatable water games in Canada!

A fascinating encounter with history

The only one of its kind in Quebec, Fort Ingall is an authentic reconstruction of the British fortress built there in 1839 during a border conflict between the United States and Canada. A brand new exhibition tells the story of this war and displays many artifacts discovered during archaeological digs. In addition to offering guided tours, historical animations and military demonstrations, Fort Ingall invites you to live an extraordinary experience and even to sleep in a soldiers' dormitory!
