Jacques Cartier State Park has a sheltered bay protecting the sandy swimming beach and campers dock. The two biggest draws for the park are unlimited boating opportunities and excellent fishing. The park's large open lawns encourage games and picnics; a playground and another picnic ground, this one forested, are nearby. In winter, cross-country skiing is permitted in the park.
Must have proof of current rabies vaccination - certificate inoculation or dated collar tag. Household pets only, caged or on a leash, not more than 6 feet. Not permitted in picnic or bathing areas.
