Fishing is only one of the many activities available for the whole family to enjoy. Paquette's Camp is a wonderful place for kids to be kids.

Below is a detailed list of activities and attractions that the whole family can enjoy. We are so much more than just a fishing camp!

  • Sit around a campfire and see who can roast the perfect marshmallow. (Firewood is provided at no extra cost)

There is a beautiful sand beach and a large well-marked shallow area for children to play in, as well as a floating dock and a "splash zone" that has a trampoline, slide and "splash log". Lifejackets are available in various sizes.
