Gordon Creek Falls

Gordon Creek is a natural spillway from Lake Kipawa. It crosses the eastern part of town and is only a minute away from downtown where it begins its final course into the Ottawa River. The flow is punctuated with a multitude of cascades embanked in a ravine and a magnificent waterfall located about 200 meters north of Murer Ave.  Standing on the bridge over Gordon Creek, one can feel the force of the energy emanating from the fall.

Hunting & Fishing

The Southern Sector of Temiscamingue is composed of forests and lakes suitable for hunting and fishing enthusiasts. Kipawa Tourism is located along the prestigious Lake Temiskaming and Lake Kipawa. We are unquestionably a place of choice for lovers of nature.

 

Fishing in Temiscamingue is excellent for walleye, pike, smallmouth bass and lake trout. Hunting is an essential activity. The presence of a significant amount of small game, black bear and moose, make our area, an exceptional place for hunters.

Kipawa River Trail

8 km north of the municipality of Laniel, a wooded trail runs along the Kipawa River for 7 km. Throughout the organized picnic route, walkers have access to superb viewing points from where they can admire the rapids before discovering the 90-foot waterfall.

 

The Grande Chute is also accessible by car via an 8 km forest road, where a 2-km nature trail is available for nature enthusiast.

Lake Kipawa

Named one of the 10 most beautiful lakes in Quebec for its quality fishing and clear waters, the Lake Kipawa compares to a labyrinth with its many islands. With a length of approximately 64 km, an area of approximately 300 km2 and an average depth of 104 m, Lake Kipawa is a major tourist attraction in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region, but particularly in the South Sector.

The stunning scenery of Lake Kipawa can be admired from the Village Laniel, and the municipality of Kipawa. Laniel offers you a public beach, so physically immerse yourself in its beauty with a swim!

Lake Temiskaming

Lake Témiscamingue is one of our treasures. With an approximate length of 110km, and an average depth of 120m, Lake Timiskaming is aptly named Algonquin, meaning "deep water". Crossing the borders of Ontario and Quebec, Lake Timiskaming pours itself into the Ottawa River.

 

The landscapes of Lake Timiskaming can be admired along Route 101 from Laniel to Temiscaming, and from the lookout on Belvédère Street in Temiscaming. Immerse yourself physically in its beauty with a swim at the Temiscaming Marina.
