Description

Parc national de la Pointe-Taillon offers exceptional access points to Lac Saint-Jean and the Péribonka River. Visitors will be charmed by the multi-coloured long sandy banks. The territory can be discovered on bicycle or foot, the 45 km long cycling network skirts along the peninsula's banks across 92 km2, or via sea kayak. The Véloroute des Bleuets criss-crosses the park over 15 km and represents one of most beautiful sections.

The ultimate experience consists of staying in one of our five rustic campsites along the shores of Lac Saint-Jean (cycle-camping and ready-to-camp options) or the Péribonka River. Have fun and learn through the permanent exhibit and the discovery activities on wildlife, flora and the history of Pointe Taillon.

The protected territory is populated by birds, beavers and moose. The immense peatland with its impressive plant life will peak your interest. On the programme: discovery and nature observation, supervised swimming, water sports, cycling or hiking and rustic camping.

Period of operation

Animal life is intense at Pointe Taillon. Obvious evidence, such as dams, huts and bevelled tree trunks, reveal the presence of the beaver. Moose have also established their headquarters in the park. During the migration period, Canada geese and greater snow geese stop in the park by the thousands. For the past few years, the sandhill crane has been frequenting the territory in the spring.

Establishment number : 204735

The park forms a large peninsula that juts out between the waters of Lake Saint-Jean and the Péribonka River. This 97.5 km2 territory protects part of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean lowlands natural region. Pointe Taillon is a sandy plain with an almost flat relief, without hills or mountains. Visitors are sure to be charmed by the maritime or seaside atmosphere of the sandy shores as far as the eye can see.

Visitors can bring their own board or rent one on site. They then have the opportunity to face Lake Saint-Jean, with its breaking waves or its gentle tranquility, or to visit the Taillon River, an always peaceful river.

The national park is surrounded by water, so canoeists have several possibilities: the Péribonka River, Lake Saint-Jean and the Taillon River. The latter is a small, quiet river located in the area of the beach and the nautical rental centre. Canoes, pedal boats, kayaks and paddle boards (SUP) can be rented in high season.
