Rivers Provincial Park
camp ground
Within the rolling hills of southwestern Manitoba is Rivers Campground. This park consists of 38 hectares of mixed grass prairie, and the campground is located on Lake Wahtopanah, a reservoir that was created by damming the Little Saskatchewan River. The name Wahtopanah is a form of a native word watopapinah meaning “canoe people.” Rivers was named in 1908 after Sir Charles Rivers Wilson, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway.
