Superb and well maintained park. There are plenty of trails for all abilities. Also perfect for hammock hikers. Over three days we only met 2 hikers, which makes the park feel like we own it. We hiked more than 55km in 3 days to complete the big crossing of the big coulee to the park entrance in St-Lucie. We recommend. Here is the list of animals we saw. Day 1 6h54. 14km Km 8 snake Km 12 moose Day 2 10hr 27km Km 16 snake Km 18.

POSITIVE: Super cute place for a couple, bed comfortable enough for a cottage. ULTRA clean🧼🚿 cottage/toilet/shower. ~11 logs/Lighting wood for $15 delivered to your door (affordable price )🌲 Nearby nature trail/park nice to visit. Cars not allowed no lights or engine noise at 11pm at night. 🤫 NEGATIVE: Not answering phone after 6 calls in 3 days. No signal 📵 If you want to hear NOTHING there is a chance that your neighbors (about 15 meters away) have children or animals, personally we were lucky with our neighbors. Overall we had a wonderful weekend inside a warm and beautiful cottage relaxing and drinking wine 🍷

The most beautiful park near Quebec City! The welcome is very warm at the Appalachian Park, the equipment rental is very affordable and the park is very beautiful. I went on a snowshoeing trip there and it's the most beautiful trail I've seen in the region even when I went to Jacques-Cartier. Can't wait to go back this summer!

We were not told about these warnings (contaminated water) when they gave us kayaks (although it is not recommended to do so). A piece of advice: don't swim in that water and be very careful!
