Riding Mountain National Park is Manitoba’s only national park and campground. There are quite a few full-service (electrical, water, sewer) sites near the entrance of the campground, and most of these sites are pull-through sites. Although ideal for large rigs, it does provide plenty of extra room when camping in a Leisure Travel Van. Some of the site are quite sloped from side to side, so when our van was levelled on blocks it was a large step out of the van. Very doable, but we did get a chuckle out of the size of the step. These full-service sites are also very close to the townsite – good for a nice walk or bike ride.
Best sites or attractions here
We like the option of the full-service sites (sites 1 – 85) and the easy access into town (and the beach). The other sites are also very nice, but have less services (electrical and water, electrical only, and non-serviced). These other sites are a further distance from the town site and while the distance can be walked or biked, if you don’t like hills while biking it could be disappointing.
Beach, boat launch, drinking water, dumping station, electric sites, hiking trails, wildlife viewing, groceries, bakery (best cinnamon buns are at the Whitehouse Bakery), golf, mini-golf, tennis, biking, boat rentals, restaurants, ice cream stores, small hardware store
There are many great hikes throughout the park and a number of golf courses. There is a great drive through a bison compound (we also saw bears and cubs). Truly a gem to visit in Manitoba. It really has a holiday destination feel to it!
