Come and discover the largest wildlife reserve in Quebec, where a welcoming and dedicated team awaits you in a breathtaking northern setting.

Lake Mistassini is Quebec's largest natural freshwater lake. It is an irresistible attraction for great adventurers. Lake Albanel is likewise a top destination for anglers. With their diversity of fish species and the trophy sizes of their catches, both of these huge bodies of water have become popular fishing destinations in Quebec.

The Waconichi site, with its pretty cabins interconnected by boardwalks, provides all the glamour of a northern fishing lodge.

Penicouane Bay, despite being over 25 km long, is a harbour compared to the immense Lake Mistassini it opens out onto. Its campground is very well equipped.

On this territory of excess, let yourself be tempted by the sea air and enjoy a memorable stay in this wildlife reserve where the word space takes on its full dimension.
