With the youngest population in the region, Saint-Joseph-de-Kamouraska is a dynamic and welcoming haven surrounded by nature. As is typical in the HautPays, the village is situated in a wooded valley dotted with farms and home to a large sawmill. Crossing the village from west to east, the Rivière du Loup has several sections offering easy paddling for canoeists, families and vacationers.
At the centre of the municipality stands an exceptional group of beautifully preserved religious heritage buildings, including the church with its iconic bell tower; the presbytery, now converted into a vacation rental; the old ice house; and one of Québec's few remaining tithe barns. The site is complete with a picnic and rest area for visitors and residents to enjoy. In Saint-Joseph-de-Kamouraska, discover the perfect blend of youthful energy and built heritage, great adventure and quiet contemplation.
