Parc Pierre Brochu


Don’t miss this rest stop on the shore of Lake Matapédia.

The first inhabitant of Matapédia Valley was Pierre Brochu (1795-1871), who settled down at the tip of Matapédia Lake in 1833. He operated a guard post along Kempt Road to offer relief and lodging to travellers and postilions. He occupied this position until he died in 1871.
