Most Popular Method of Reserving A Campsite in Manitoba Ready to Go: Blaikie
Campers will be able to book provincial park campsites online starting 7:30 a.m. on Monday, April 4 when Manitoba’s Parks Reservation Service opens for another great camping season, Conservation Minister Bill Blaikie announced today.
“The reservation service is a convenient way to make sure you get the campsite you want on the date you want,” said Blaikie. “We are pleased to note that entry to provincial parks is free for the third straight year and no park vehicle permits are required.”
The Parks Reservation Service is the most popular method of obtaining a campsite in Manitoba’s provincial parks. In 2010, a record number of 62,745 reservations were booked and 69 per cent of total reservations were made online
During the first two weeks of the booking period, a number of campgrounds offer select sites that require a seven-night minimum reservation, which includes a Sunday-to-Sunday stay. The campgrounds that offer these sites are Birds Hill, Camp Morton, Grand Beach, Stephenfield, Big Whiteshell, Falcon Beach, Falcon Lakeshore, Hecla/Gull Harbour, Kiche Manitou, Nutimik, Otter Falls, St. Malo, West Hawk, Bakers Narrows, Campers Cove, Paint Lake and Asessippi.
Campsite reservations can be made online through www.manitobaparks.com or by contacting a customer service representative at the call centre at 948-3333 or toll-free at 1-888-482-2267.
Customers are encouraged to confirm online user names and passwords a few days prior to making their reservations. Forgotten passwords or general assistance are also available through the call centre.
