Mont Tremblant Backcountry Camping

Canoe camping in Mont Tremblant is the ultimate way for paddlers to experience the beautiful lakes and rivers of southern Quebec’s largest park. Enjoy wild camping along Mont Tremblant’s two main rivers—the Diable and the L’Assomption—or slumber to the sound of gently lapping waves at one of the park’s three destination canoe camping lakes. Bordering the park to the north, the equally vast Rouge-Matawin Wildlife Reserve offers even more options for extended canoe trips.

Diable River, Mont Tremblant National Park

Beginning at Lac-aux-Herbes, paddle the twists and turns of the upper Rivière du Diable along a 2- to 3-day, 26-kilometer course of calm meanders, peaceful lakes and class I-II rapids. Experienced paddlers can run all 14 rapids at most water levels, or take the short portages to bypass the whitewater sections. More than 80 canoe camping sites are scattered all along the river, and a shuttle service makes it easy to enjoy a one-way journey while wild camping on Mont Tremblant’s best-known river.

Paddlers wishing to extend their Diable River canoe trip beyond the take-out at Lac Laplante can shuttle around a 7-km section of unrunnable rapids and falls and put-in below Chutes Croches. From here, the route continues an additional 21 km through Lac Monroe, Lac Chat and a selection of class I-III rapids, with an option to canoe camp a final night before reaching the take-out at the Diable Sector park entrance.
