Watersports in Lac-Sainte-Marie

Nestled in the heart of the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, surrounded by majestic mountains and lush forest, the cozy municipality of Lac-Sainte-Marie is ideal for individuals and families alike. Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, and especially for those who enjoy watersports, this place was made for the physically active nature-lover who wants to get away from the city.

In 1928, the construction of the Paugan Hydroelectric Dam in the nearby municipality of Low required flooding of the village, forcing nearly all of Lac-Sainte-Marie’s residents to relocate to higher ground. However, this resulted in an amazing transformation taking place, growing the lake to its current size and in the process creating the majestic area it is today.

Lac-Sainte-Marie has enough to keep you and the entire family busy, with not only a beautiful lake, but also a golf course (Golf Sainte-Marie) and ski hill (Mont Sainte-Marie), as well as forests for hiking, mountain biking, and camping, and much more. The activities are endless! There sure is a lot to see and do in Lac-Sainte-Marie, but the highlight might very well be its incredible access to watersports.

The Project

Living on the water’s edge is an incredible privilege. Serene sunrises, breathtaking sunsets, and views of beautiful forests and magnificent mountains – this is where your dream home is waiting to be built. Ideal for those seeking tranquility, distance from the city, and a change of pace from their regular life, Lac-Sainte-Marie Peninsula Paradise offers an opportunity to connect with nature while enjoying a luxury lifestyle.

At the south end of the peninsula, you will find Rivière de la Gatineau. At the north end of the peninsula, you will find Lac-Sainte-Marie. With water all around, it’s obvious that the Lac-Sainte-Marie Peninsula Paradise project is ideal for watersports and general outdoor enthusiasts. Here are a few of the things you and your family can do on the water in Lac-Sainte-Marie.

Water activities in Lac-Sainte-Marie

Enjoy access to private docks, boats, and water toys at resort Lac Ste-Marie! Spend a day on the water in a canoe, kayak, paddle boat, or speedboat. Don’t have exactly what you need? You can always rent or borrow extra equipment or toys for watersports to make sure you get the most out of your time on the water.

When it comes to fishing, the municipality has been in collaboration with the Ministère des Resources Naturelles et de la Faune to ensure conditions are maintained in several of the surrounding lakes. In 2019, Lac Sainte-Marie was featured as one of the stops on the Circuit Pro-Pêche Vallée-de-la-Gatineau. If you do cast your line into this lake, you’re likely to find Northern pike, Chain pickerel, and Largemouth bass, among others. So, get out on the water to enjoy a day of fun with the family – and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to catch your dinner at the same time!

Lac-Sainte-Marie is a wonderful municipality for any individual or family looking for their dream home on the water. Enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains and forests, and stay active with access to dozens of recreational activities, including many different watersports.
