Hello, I am planning a trip to Jacques-Cartier park this summer and would love to do a canoe-camping trip.

I'm looking for information or a canoe map for the Jacques-Cartier River.

Does anyone know where to find one online or have any helpful information for a first trip to the park?

Thanks,
Laura

Hi Laura,

I paddled the Jacques Cartier several times. excluding the mighty upper section of contuuous class VI (called the ''taureau section)

The parc section is an easy one, suitable for beginners and families.

It's only +/- 20km long. So only one or two nights possible, as your second night would be close to the South border of the park.

You can add another day if you continue till the Bridge in Tewksbury/Stoneham village, and stopping just before the rafting section. (only one portage)
A quite long shuttle though.

The scenery is impressive in La Jacques -Cartier park.
A few good hike are also interesting.

As Gerald mentionned, during weeken, especially It can be crowded.

Cioa
