Lower Madawaska River

Lower Madawaska River Provincial Park                    

Waterway parks are river corridors that provide canoeists with high-quality recreation and historical river travel. This route is a canoe trail down the Lower Madawaska River into a 1,200 hectare protected area. Eskers, kames, outwash plains, kettle lakes and sandbars, are just some of the topographic features associated with this former major spillway for glacial meltwater.

Facilities include parking, earth pit toilets, fire pits and 36 canoe-in campsites. Bonnechere Provincial Park offers hiking as well as canoeing, fishing and camping opportunities. The area is classified as a World Conservation Union (IUCN) protected area, a designation made to protect outstanding natural and scenic areas of national or international significance for scientific, educational, and recreational use. These are relatively large natural areas not materially altered by human activity where extractive resource uses are not allowed.
