Until May 2023: Seasonal closure from the Saint-Mathieu-du-Parc entrance to the Rivière-à-la-Pêche service centre.

La Mauricie National Park is located north of Trois-Rivières. Halfway between Montréal and Québec City, it is a two hour drive from both cities.

While it is seductive in spring and summer because of waterfalls and many sports opportunities, it is delightful in autumn with brilliant fall colours. In winter, snowshoe excursions provide opportunities for getting out into nature. It’s the perfect place for a day trip or a weekend of camping!
