Voyageur Provincial park is the perfect spot for all types of outdoorsy people; from those beach-lovers who enjoy volleyball and cooling off in the water, and for the more conventional campers scouting the perfect trails for hiking. If you don’t mind a little sand in your tent, and maybe a gritty hot dog or two, this is the place for you. The park protects four shallow bays that support a highly productive shoreline of wetlands, home to an amazing number of animals. The four beaches are all perfect for a refreshing swim after a morning of hiking past the many terrestrial and aquatic habitats that line the trail. There’s a broad marshland along the park’s north shore where migrating waterfowl stop over on their journey south. To view these places from a different vantage point, try paddling up the reservoir of the Carillon Dam and explore the many small inlets and bays. In the winter, this park turns into a winter sport paradise with 10km of groomed cross-country ski trails. The flat terrain of the park is perfect for both beginner and intermediate-level skiers.
