Named in honor of Jean-Baptiste Chevery, the village is built on a sandy tip of land accessible by boat from Harrington Harbour. It is the administrative center for the municipality of Côte-Nord-du-Golfe-du-Saint-Laurent. There is trout fishing on the Nétagamiou and La Croix rivers near the village, and moose can be hunted in season. On the Nétagamiou, 500 meters from the village, a waterfall offers visitors a relaxing and peaceful setting. A 4 km hiking trail leads along the river from the marina.
