Boat rental

You can rent canoes, kayaks, pedal boats and rabaskas (12 passenger canoes) to paddle on Lake Cordon. Please note that the Park does not allow any personal boats or canoes. This is to stop the spread of invasive plant species which can seriously harm our lakes.

Lifejackets included.

Please note that row-boats are only rented for fishing.

Advance reservations are recommended for high season. Contact the Park directly to reserve. 1-866-326-9072

Not directly in the Park with the exception of Parc Eco gravel road (shared with cars and pedestrians), or on the linear parc ”Le P’tit’ Train du Nord”, approximately 20 minutes from Les Refuges Perchés.
