The biggest lake in our watershed is the Poisson Blanc which consist of 80 wild islands encircled by hills on a 25 km long lake created by the construction of the Cedar dam in 1929. Lake Poisson Blanc is distinguished by its isolated campsites hidden under pine forests and landscapes of striking beauty with a minimum of traces of civilization. Here and there, public hang-outs at sandy beaches invite you to rest and bathe. The water is of a hallucinating clarity. You can see several meters deep! The temptation to jump from its innumerable capes is irresistible.
For about 20 years, canoeists and boaters have taken advantage of its islands to bivouac. But in the past, this practice, carried out in an anarchic way, ended up seriously damaging the islands. “People left their waste there, cut wood and made fires anywhere, sacking the environment,” now we have a Regional Park that encompasses the northern part of the lake to the Mystery island but the southern sector is still unattended. Our association and the regional park make it a duty to protect the beauty of this lake and make it an ecotourism destination for all!
