A spokesperson for Cime Aventures told the Blog MTL that certain parts of the river are closed in 2021 in order to preserve salmon habitats. Visitors are asked to respect the signs indicating the places where swimming is no longer authorized.

The campsite also asks bathers to opt for environmentally friendly sunscreen and insect repellent to avoid contaminating the waters. The use of soap is also prohibited in the river.
