Cycling, camping, water sports—you’ll find them all here.

At parc régional du lac 31 milles, you can even rent your own island! Snowmobilers and ATV riders can explore over 600 km of marked trails. The town of Maniwaki is home to several interpretation centres where you can learn about forest fire prevention, white-tailed deer, and Indigenous culture.
