About Memphremagog, Quebec
The Regional County Municipality of Memphremagog, Lake Memphremagog, and the city of Magog (named after the lake) are situated in the southeastern part of the Canadian province of Quebec.
The city of Magog is located at the northern end of Lake Memphremagog. Historically, it's known for its nineteenth-century construction of flour, saw and card mills - initiated by Ralph Merry III, who founded Magog in 1797.
In the summer in Memphremagog, you can go golfing, biking, swimming, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, camping, and more! And be sure to take the lake cruise aboard Aventure I or II. Strong swimmers can swim the 27 miles from the Magog shores to the American state of Vermont. Dare to try it! If you're there late July to early August, you can even join the Lac Memphremagog International Swimming Marathon, a 21-mile race that begins and ends in Magog.
In winter, enjoy cross-country skiing in the city's four provincial parks or in a private centre, snowshoe to mountaintops, brave the hiking trails, or go winter camping under a prospector's tent or in a comfortable shelter. You can also bird watch, take a sleigh ride, tube slide, skate, shop, take in a show and so much more. Of course, you must try the syrup - Magog is known for its wonderful maple syrup!
Finally, be sure to pack up your camera and head out to the Saint-Benoit-du-Lac Abbey in the village of the same name, and look out for Lake Memphremagog's own Loch Ness Monster - the Memphre!
