As well as forests of conifers and hardwoods, La Mauricie will treat you to touches of azure: the Park has more than 150 lakes of various sizes. During the day, let the haunting cry of the common loon thrill your spirit. Nearby, pools at the foot of waterfalls invite you to come for a swim. When evening falls, it's the hooting of the barred owl or the great horned owl that lulls you to sleep.
