Something not right?

Description

There are 4 parking lots free for 24 hours. S-159, S-160 and so on. Dogs are not allowed in the park.

This seems to be a noisy place though as sometimes young people come at night and make noisy stuff...

The waterfalls are a nice thing to see.

Good to see the waterfall BUT 2nd time here and 2nd time young people are coming in the middle of the night to make noise. This time, around 2am, heard two « bangs » like huge firecrackers… Next time we’ll go elsewhere as there are many other many accepted places around.

Super place for a night. Very quiet as I was alone in my parking lot. I wish more parks would allow 24h parking duration as they do here..

Very nice place, busy place, we heard people until 9pm. However, it was quiet afterwards. It is the parking lot for hiking, so people started arriving again around 8am

Très bien pour une nuit. Tranquille et les pistes de ski de fond sont magnifiques. La marche pour les chutes est très bonne aussi.

Very good spot for one night. Quiet and the ski trails are excellent. Nice walk to the falls as well.

Very nice night.
1minute walk to Shawinigan falls.
Strange thing though: from 8pm to midnight, there were something like 15 cars that passed by (one at a time) in the parking lot without stopping. One of them stopped and two young adult got out with flashlight and went to the woods to the falls. When they came back, I asked them what they did. Told me they went to see the falls for their fisrt time. Why in the dark?, I asked. Answer was we were passing by. Then I asked why so many car were just passing by and they told me that at night, young adults are gathering in the parking lot with their car and having fun. Ok, the fact I was there was probably the reason they were not stopping and were probably going into another parking. I was afraid it would be noisy if some decided to gather here but everything was good. Had a really good sleep.
