Parking close to the city center, next to the river. 24h parking is allowed. There is also a portable toilet.
The parking was full the night we spent there! Campers, vans, trailers, etc.
There were also big fireworks, maybe that was the reason for the crowd.

Très bien, tranquille et peu de circulation. Génératrice par un VR n'était pas trop déplaisant. La pluie forte aidait.

Very nice quiet stop. Not too many vehicles there. Only one needed to run a generator at night but rain helped muffled the sound.

Great spot - busy though. We parked on a Thursday Eve and most spots were taken up by the time we went to sleep.
Ideal for kayak and canoes, 2 docks and can walk into the water for a swim.
Kids playground and beautiful trails a bit down the path
Parked with our 32 ft class c motor home

24 hour parking allowed. Gorgeous spot right by the Saint-Maurice river and doesn’t feel secluded like Shawinigan Parc des Chutes that we had previously checked out.

Parking le long de la rivière.
Toilette sèche dispo. Pas de table de pique-nique.
Attention il peut y avoir du monde. Nous sommes arrivés vers 22h le samedi et il ne restait que 1 ou 2 places.
Sinon bien situé, 15min de marche d'une microbrasserie!
