Park Description

Morin Lake Regional Park is situated on the shores of Morin Lake. Nestled within the Thickwood Hills, neighbouring the Hamlet of Victoire and 14 km West of the Village of Debden. Its deep crystal clear waters are home to many species of fish. The lake has natural sand beaches, an island and a wonderful sand bar, which juts out into the lake in low water conditions. The lake is excellent for swimming, skiing, boating, canoeing, fishing and scuba diving. The park boasts well treed, private sites, modern washrooms, boat launch fish filleting station, nature trail and a brand new playground. Unique to our park are our Reunion Grounds which is separate from the campground, which is comparable to renting your own private campground. The park has a friendly staff ready to make your stay an enjoyable one.

Park / Area History

Camping and enjoyment of Morin Lake took place many years prior to the formation of the Regional Park. Albert Lalonde Sr. had a grander vision for the area, and prior to his death in 1982, set aside 5 acres of land to be designated as an area for a campground. In July 1984 the official documents were signed and the opening ceremony took place. The original representatives for the park were, Ronald Reves, Cecile Beaulac, Donald Paquette, Bernard Lalonde, Luc Demers, and Edmond Lajeunesse.

With few resources and a small board, it seemed to be a monumental task to make the vision a reality. More board members were recruited, additional land was purchased, a plan was struck and the work began. We are thankful for the forethought and planning that went into our campground as the park continues to receive compliments on our well treed and private campsites.

Our park continues to be maintained and operated by the Regional Park Authority. With hard work and dedication of our community our park has grown from a blank slate with an outhouse to being full of amenities that make our guests stay more convenient and enjoyable.
