The snow tubing slopes were excellent. Every difficulty level available. Everything was well-maintained and there were several restaurants. Definitely try the frozen maple syrup candy. They spread it over a huge block of snow and ice to harden right in front of your eyes.

Visited the water park on the last day of summer before it closed for the season. If you're CAA member, you would need to get the discount tickets (10%) from the CAA office in advance , we were disappointed that they don't sell CAA tickets at the gate. While we called them, they did not mention that at all. I... More

Hi! Thank you for your comment. We are always happy to know how we can improve. There will be shower facilities in our new building with the hotel and indoor waterpark. For the CAA rebate, we apologize. It is clearly stated on our website. The people on the phone should have mentioned it. More

Me and my children (aged 7, 9, 11 & 17) loved this waterpark. The water temperature was so warm, the ambience was incredible - different themed sections - two fun themed rivers - honestly reminded me of our trip to Disney which is a big compliment. And to have this in Canada at a waterpark with a short season was... More

It's expensive but a nice place for the family. We go to eat at Resto Pub le St-Gab for dinner it was really good!

On our way home from the east coast my wife and two boys (12&14) decided to keep the fun going by staying for two nights at the campground. Just a spectacular water park with so many slides to mention but well worth the visit . Campground site was moderate in size and fit our 32ft motorhome with full hook ups... More

The water park is amazing, many slides can be done with kids wich was one of our criteria for choosing the place. Most of the slides are a lot of fun, some will require maintenance or adjustments in the near future like the cascade that is clearly not up to the standards, in this ride I fell off my tube...

We tried the Luge D'eau, or Hydrospeed (as they translate it to english). It was a fantastic trip down the rafting river on individual boards that resemble large flutter boards. You hit the rapids and hold on! It was quite a rush! Be prepared for lots of swimming and just a great outdoor adventure. The swimming took a few hours... More

We visited the sledding park in 2013 and had an incredible time. The runs are a lot of fun, the ice go karting was a blast and the personnel are very friendly. This year we went to the water park and camped in the campground at the top of the park. The personnel was friendly once again and they are... More

We didn't really know what to expect as we didn't research the place a lot before going but we were blown away. neither of our kids are "water babies" but they LOVED it!! So many rides, so much fun. Great facilities, food and drink options, lockers, facilities. Many of the locals knew the routine so they came loaded with coolers... More
