Lac-Simon Beach

Lac-Simon beach is a stunning municipally run beachfront in view of the popular Canadian mountains. Enjoy the refreshing water on a sandy beach, but don’t forget to bring your umbrella and sunscreen!  With lots of parking spaces, a large beach area, and 13.50$ for entry, you don’t need to worry about it being overcrowded. Find your spot and enjoy the park nearby, the slides, and even a smaller cushion trampoline for the kids. Don’t leave your dog at home; the beach has a grassy area perfect for pets, which must remain on a leash. The Lac-Simon beach also contains a small shaded forest to set up your hammock and relax with a book.

Splendidly clear water. Picnic tables under a canopy are available for the public. There are no kiosks with food or drinks, so bring refreshments or buy from the village. Boats must receive the mandatory stickers to be loaded in. Boat washes are available behind the fire station.

Parc de l’Amitié

Parc de l’Amitié, or Friendship Park, was opened recently in the summer of 2020. The park’s name was chosen by the contest winner Ms. Levesque, and the design on the welcome sign was drawn out by her. The park welcomes all ages to compete with your friends in a friendly game of mini-golf. Followed by some Pétanque, a game where you and your opponents score points by strategically throwing a boule (a larger ball) near the jack (a smaller ball). With different combinations, your score goes up, and you might walk away better than your friends.

All this to finish with a tennis game, pickleball, or both! An inexpensive outing for your family or friends.

Ice Fishing on Lac de la Ferme

Two kilometres south of Lac-Simon village sits Lac de la Ferme, where ice fishing is common for most fishermen in the winter months. This lake is popular for the brook trout caught during this icy season. For those wanting a new experience, there are fishing packages offered that include drilled holes, a container of worms, as well as some hot drinks for when you’re coming back. However, you are encouraged to bring your folding chair! Bring your family with you for a unique experience of catching your fish. See them put a fight with the locals below the ice for your amusement, and snap some photos to show the relatives what you’ve been up to!

Reservations are required by phone at least 24 hours in advance. Check out the website for fishing packages to see what days of the week you can fish. All depend on ice conditions. Must have a fishing license, which can be acquired at Ultramar in Chenéville (The establishment also offers you lovely, comfortable, and well-equipped cottages that will allow you to reconnect with nature).

Belvédère Denis-Papin

Belvédère Denis-Papin is a historical landmark inaugurated in October 2011 in memory of Denis Papin, mayor of Lac-Simon in 2009 in 2011, who died of illness before he could complete his term. This is a historic site for Lac Simon and a stunning place for a picnic with a pavilion for a rainy day. The spot is a magnificent vantage point for a sweet view of Lac Simon. Whether you go in the Fall to see Lac Simon in all its colours or in the Winter when animals can be spotted from above crossing the lake. Enjoy the view, have some lunch, and take some photos!

Check out the plaque dedicated to Denis Papin: “He passed away quietly, at peace with his God, leaving his loved ones in deep pain. His righteousness, the goodness of his heart, won him the affection of all those around him. He leaves his family a respected and honoured name, the memory of a loving and devoted husband, and the memory of a father who can be cherished with pride. Father up there, watch over us and often come and bless us.”
