Description

Some 20 buildings and a collection of more than 5,000 objects recreate a typical logging camp in Quebec dating from 1850 to 1950. The rough, axe-hewn timber structures give an insight into the stark living conditions of the region's lumberjacks and log drivers of Mauricie. Visitors can explore the men's camp, the smithy, the tower fender, the sawmill and the cookhouse.
