Plaisance National Park

Petite Nation
Plaisance
Located on a series of islands in the Ottawa River, the Parc national de Plaisance is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, particularly birdwatchers: over 250 species can be observed all year. Witness the stunning sight of birds and ducks migrating, and turtles laying their eggs. Discover the park by hiking or biking the 40-km trail network, canoeing or kayaking through its lush environment, or participating in an interpretive activity. Rent a cottage, a yurt, a traditional ready-to-camp tent or one of 120 campsites and extend your back-to-nature experience!
