In addition to offering an inn right on the banks of the S aint-Maurice River, Parc de l’Île Melville also provides access to more than 145 campsites. At this scenic park, there is lodging to suit every taste in the heart of 160 hectares of natural beauty! And there’s no need to travel for hours, as it is located only minutes from Shawinigan’s downtown area. Young people will enjoy kayaking, canoeing or flying through the air on the family-friendly Arbre en Arbre (tree link) aerial circuit, which combines Tarzan vines, zip lines and suspended bridges. There are two brand new circuits to try this year, including one for children aged 2 to 6 years. And when the snowflakes begin to fall, visitors can rediscover the joys of tubing and downhill skiing.
