Our history

Mont Vilain Outdoor Centre is located on the site of the former Abitibi-Price sawmill, a company that is now known as Resolute Forest Products. Based near Lake Tchitogama in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region and in the center of the Monts-Valin National Park, this site was the ideal location for the sawmill as well as for the log drive. Two drive boats are still on site and have been restored into rooms, a nod to our history.
