Parks Reservation Service - Reservations Policies

Parks Reservation Service brochure (PDF)

All reservations for Manitoba provincial park campgrounds, yurts and cabin facilities require payment at the time of reservation. By creating a reservation, the customer agrees to abide by all applicable rules and regulations that are conditions of a camping/cabin permit. The customer also agrees to be bound by the cancellation policies in effect. A non-refundable $10.00 reservation fee applies to all reservations.

Cancellation Policies

You can cancel your reservation and collect a full refund on your camping fees (except for the $10.00 reservation fee) if you cancel 4 or more days before your arrival date. If your cancellation occurs 3 days or less before the arrival date, your fees will be refunded except for the first night’s camping fee and the $10.00 reservation fee. Remember, if you don’t cancel your reservation or do not show up, all fees are forfeited.

Changes

Changes to reservations regarding dates and location may be allowed depending on availability, for a non-refundable change fee of $4.00. Changes made within three days or less of your arrival date that involve a later arrival or moving to another campground will be subject to an additional non-refundable nightly fee plus the change fee.

Early Departures

These will be handled by the campground office unless this change is made in 4 or more days in advance of arrival.  Refunds are not given for early departures on yurts, cabins or when a restriction is in place.

Late Arrivals

We understand that there may be times when your arrival is delayed so we will hold your site until 11:00 am the next day before cancellation. If you can not arrive by 11:00 am, you must call the park or call centre to see if a later in- the -day check-in can be accommodated. Sites will not be held as a late arrival for longer than one night and will be cancelled as a "no show" with all fees forfeited.. Fees will apply for each night your reservation is held. (If you want to leave your campsite early, drop by the campground office and the attendant will process a refund on your behalf for the unused portion of your stay. Some restrictions may apply. Early departure refunds are not granted for cabins and yurts.) 

No Shows

If you do not arrive by 11 am the next morning, and do not contact the park to advise of late arrival, you will be considered a no-show. Your fees will be forfeit and the site will be made available to the next customer. 

Number of Persons per Site

You are allowed four adults or one family per site.  A family is generally defined as a parent(s), with children under the age of 18. The addition of a grandparent or similar relative is also allowed. All persons must fit into the allowable camping units.

Allowable Camping Units

Each campsite is designed for one camping unit. A camping unit would be defined as a tent, tent-trailer, travel trailer, truck-camper, motorhome or fifth wheel. If space allows, an additional tent and dining tent may also be used.

Number of Vehicles per Site

One motorized vehicle is allowed per site and all other vehicles must be parked in a designated parking area.

Minimum / Maximum Stays

The minimum number of nights that can be booked is one, except during long weekends; then the minimum stay is two nights. The maximum stay is 21 days at the same campsite. The minimum stay at family vacation cabins and yurts is 2 days, while the maximum stay is two weeks. There are no early departure refunds when a minimum stay requirement is in effect.

7 Night Minimum Stay Sites

Certain sites at select campgrounds are set aside for campers that are interested in longer stays in provincial park campgrounds. Locations that offer this service are: Birds Hill, Camp Morton, Falcon Beach, Falcon Lakeshore, Grand Beach, Hecla, Kiche Manitou, Nutimik, Otter Falls, St. Malo and West Hawk, Stephenfield, Big Whiteshell, Bakers Narrows, Campers Cove, Paint Lake and Asessippi.
