Parc nature along the Saint Lawrence River

The Saint Lawrence Prairies

Charlevoix’s best kept secret! In harmony with nature, the environment and its residents, the Prairies are two linear kilometers of beach, fields of salt-water cord grass and wild flowers. It’s also a place where cottage owners stay to enjoy the tranquility, scenery, salty air, wildlife and outdoor activities.
