Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park is named for the explorer and mapmaker who travelled to Huronia in 1615 via the Mattawa River. Located at the confluence of the Mattawa and Amable-du-Fond River systems, the park is an ideal place to spend your family vacation.
Hiking, canoeing, wildlife viewing and a full-service Natural Heritage Education program ensures that there is never a lack of things to do or places to explore.
Paddlers will enjoy a variety of experiences and hikers can choose from four distinct trails ranging from easy to difficult. Try one of our Voyageur Canoe Tours, an interpretive experience that allows you to try your hand at paddling a 10m (30’) Voyageur canoe. Tours are offered during the months of July and August.
