Municipalité de Saint-Joseph-de-Kamouraska

140-A route de l'Église, Saint-Joseph-de-Kamouraska, Québec G0L 3P0


Saint-Joseph-de-Kamouraska, made up of the youngest population in the region, constitutes a haven in the great outdoors, dynamic and welcoming. Typical of the Haut-Pays, the village is built in a forest valley animated by the presence of a large sawmill and dotted with agricultural operations. It is crossed from west to east by the Loup River, certain portions of which are easily navigable, to the delight of canoeists, families and vacationers.

The religious core of the municipality is stands out for a magnificently preserved ensemble including a church with an emblematic bell tower, a presbytery converted into a tourist accommodation site, an ancestral ice house and one of the rare tithe barns still standing in Quebec.

An area picnic and rest facilities available to the population and visitors complete the site. Stopping at Saint-Joseph-de Kamouraska is discovering a village that combines youth and heritage, adventure and contemplation.
