Winter accomodation

La Mauricie National Park

Bursting with light and magnificent views during the day and boasting starry skies and a cozy atmosphere at night, a winter retreat at La Mauricie National Park is sure to please!

Treat yourself to a nature experience without forgoing comfort in one of the 13 oTENTiks at the Rivière-à-la-Pêche campground.

Use the sleds provided to bring your luggage from the parking lot to your tent and explore the cross-country ski and snowshoe trails.

Friendly tip: Although firewood is provided, use it sparingly... The slow-burning stove can quickly turn your oTENTik into a real sauna!
