The Trente-et-Un-Milles Lake
A vacation to a secluded island of
pristine nature… make it happen! Release your inner Robinson
and set your sights on a calm and peaceful
getaway. In the Outaouais
region, there are masses of islands
sure to delight all kinds of adventurers.
In the Gatineau Valley you’ll find 136
islands dotted on the crystal-clear waters of the
Trente-et-Un-Milles Lake. Whether your thing is rustic
canoe-camping or all-out glamping and ready-to-camp units, there’s
an island just perfect for you! At Village Majopial, boat rentals
make it possible for campers to get to the 30 campsites, some of
which can accommodate more than one tent. A surveillance crew
patrols the lake daily to inform campers on issues related to
environment protection and safety rules, and can also provide
low-cost campfire wood.
