La Pêche Lake

La Pêche Lake is the largest lake in Gatineau Park, and among the furthest from the Capital core.

The landscape in this area still preserves many characteristics of a pristine wilderness. The sector is also a popular destination for canoe-camping and fishing.

The lake has a launch for non-motorized boats. Bring your own canoe or kayak, or rent one of ours for a few hours or for the day.
