Temps en famille
Feu de camp
Living near Saint-Jean lake is to enjoy the freshness of this vast body of water. Bring your favorite watercraft and games : frisbee, scuba, paddle board, watercraft, kite, surfboard and more.
Fishing enthusiasts will keep occupied on this lake. Whether camped on one of the dikes (breakwater) that protect the shore, or relaxed aboard his own motorboat, everyone tries his luck to remove a walleye, a pike or even better ... the King of Pekuakami : a superb landlocked salmon (freshwater salmon).
The Véloroute des Bleuets (bikepath), which crisscrosses the territory of Lac-Saint-Jean, goes right to the heart of Domaine Philippe. That's why many of our visitors will have chosen our site as a starting point for a week-long bike tour of the various beaches that Saint-Jean lake has to offer.
On a windy day, your own equipment will be appropriate : colorful beach kite for your children, or, if you are athletic, your kite ski, surfboard or sailboat. Come and tame the waves of the majestic Saint-Jean lake.
When, dancing on the waves, the sun sets on the horizon, nothing like a little campfire with family or friends to revisit your adventures of the day or the most memorable moments of the last hours. Do not forget the marshmallows, s'more, local blueberry chocolate and, why not, a good bottle of wine. To end this stay, nothing better than a small fireworks allowed only on the sandy beach.
Under the watchful eyes of their parents (because there are no lifeguards), children can wade safely in water suitable for swimming without getting too far from the sandy beach which declination is progressive. Aces in swimming will be able to improve their technique either in the calm shudder of the Pekuakami or during the mixing of its waves in high wind. The swimming competitors of the Traversée internationale annuelle du lac Saint-Jean in July travel make a crossing of 32 km (almost 20 miles).
