Saint-Joseph-de-Kamouraska, home to the youngest population in the region, is a dynamic and welcoming heaven of peace in the heart of nature. Built in a valley rich with farming and forestry activity kept vibrant by the presence of a large sawmill, the Rivière du Loup River crosses the municipality from west to east. To the great pleasure of canoeists and other adventurers, certain sections of the river can be navigated. The religious centre of the municipality stands out thanks to an ensemble of magnificently well-preserved landmarks including a church with an emblematic steeple, a presbytery, an ice cream parlour and one of the rare tithe barns still standing in the province. The village marries youth and history, adventure and relaxation.
