An oasis of water and hills, the Yamaska National Park invites you to discover the enchanting landscapes. Located on the outskirts of Montreal, Yamaska National Park offers the opportunity of hiking or biking several miles. Water activities are highlighted by a large body of water where fish, frogs and herons are everywhere. The park offers cabin accommodation, camping and ready-to-camp while relaxing in privacy and serenity. To discover the flora and fauna, we invite you to participate in an activity of discovery led by a park warden!

Hiking networks


The Parc national de la Yamaska’s varied plant life will fascinate you. A tangible sign of the park’s history, the Choinière reservoir is lined with forests and fields that provide shelter to several species of animals. During warm weather, the lake comes alive as kayaks, pedal boats, sailboards, and canoes crisscross its waters. The Appalachian Mountain chain around the Parc national de la Yamaska presents gently rolling landscapes that will also please winter activity enthusiasts.

Ornithology


Beautiful site which groups a variety of habitats, the Yamaska National Park preserves a nice representative sample of the natural region of Appalachian lowlands. The park offers many areas for bird watching. Fields, young woodlands and mature forests form mosaic vegetation. The presence of a body of water at the center of a vast park adds to this attraction, The Choiniere Reservoir, and attracts about a third of the 234 species already observed within the park boundaries.
