Bowman is a veritable paradise for campers and hunters. Less than an hour’s drive from Gatineau/Ottawa, it offers seven well-appointed camping grounds with activities to entertain the whole family throughout the summer. Lac Poisson Blanc is home to Base de plein air AIR-EAU-BOIS whose mission is to encourage the practice of activities in a natural environment through training and the provision of outdoor services and programs. Thanks to the municipality of Bowman, a boat launch and a boarding dock are available for boating enthusiasts.
The municipality accommodates two outfitting concessions to welcome hunting and fishing enthusiasts from all over North America. La Lièvre Outfitters occupy an enchanting location on the shore of the Rivière du Lièvre within the boundaries of the municipality of Bowman. Hunting and fishing devotees are invited to reserve a cottage for deer or bear hunting or to tackle the many different species of fish, such as bass, pickerel and northern pike.
Blessed with 27 well-stocked fishing lakes and 43 km2 of game-rich territory under lease, Pourvoirie Chevreuil Blanc, close to major centres, is a hunting and fishing paradise for all fanciers.
