La Mauricie National Park is located in the region of Quebec, Canada, about a 2 hour drive from both Montreal and Quebec City. Full of rivers, lakes, and pond, this forested and mountainous national park is not to be missed. Covering 207 square miles, the park is located in the Laurentian mountains and is a short drive from several New England states such as Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and upstate New York. Open year round, La Mauricie National Park has plenty of trails to be hiked, biked, cross-country skied, and snowshoed. It also offers a canoe camping circuit for those looking to head to the backcountry. This circuit covers a dozen lakes and gives visitors access to 200 campsites that are only accessible by boat. Even if you’re not ready to take a multi-day canoe camping trip, don’t miss a few hours on the water with a canoe or kayak. Due to the abundance of lakes and rivers, this national park is a fantastic place to birdwatch and is home to wildlife such as moose and black bears as well as otters and beavers.
