Chambord

Chambord, a major transportation centre and railway hub, is also known as a holiday haven and a service centre. Located at the crossroads of routes 155 and 169, this municipality deserves to be explored more thoroughly to unveil its affinity with Lac Saint-Jean. Fishing enthusiasts come to Chambord to tease landlocked salmon and walleye. Others come for its beaches. Cyclists enjoy the lake’s immense size and the vast natural areas throughout the Véloroute des Bleuets. This specific section was previously alongside the road and is now a much safer bike trail. The view from the roadside area is simply spectacular! Village historique de Val-Jalbert is located in the Chambord area, which has many accommodations, places to eat, a campground, and a health centre with spa. Every summer, the Festival du Cowboy comes back to town. There is a pump-out station near the visitor information centre.
