The Pioneer Mill Visit our mill classified as a heritage building! New in 2021, the Moulin des Pionniers site is adding new forest-themed play structures on its site such as water games with slides for children, giant inflatable trampoline, giant dry slides, tree-shaped games, swings, interactive games, hebertism trail, mini-golf games, rental chalets as well as kayak, mobile campground without service (dumping station in the center of the village) and parking for the cycle path which relis La Doré in St-Félicien.

Walking path. Built in 1904, the entirely wooden mill measures 15 meters long by 15 meters wide. All the machinery is found in the main part of the mill. The timber warehouse and the repair shop are located in the annexed part. Proud representative of the colonization of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, this hydraulic sawmill has been in operation for more than 70 years. Come and discover its history!
