Updated October 5, 2021

Critical

Provincial Response Level: RESTRICTED
All provincial park visitors must adhere to current public health orders.



  • Physical distancing of two metres from anyone not in your household is recommended.
  • Facemasks are required inside buildings including washrooms, offices, visitor centres and trail shelters.
  • Group visits and events are subject to gathering size restrictions.
  • Wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer regularly.  Please bring your own hand sanitizer.
  • Stay home when sick.  Do not visit parks if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or if you or someone in your household are required to self-isolate.

Camping: No more than 10 people may gather on or occupy a campsite if one or more of the persons at the campsite is an unvaccinated eligible person.  The occupants of the campsite are responsible for determining the vaccination status of all persons gathered on the site.

Groups of fully immunized people and those under 12 who are not eligible for the vaccine may camp together under regular campsite occupancy limits.

Park Offices may have capacity limits in place.  Please wait outside if requested by staff.  Visitors are encouraged to purchase and print park vehicle permits prior to visiting the park online at manitobaelicensing.ca or purchase from a local retailer.

Visitor Centres are open to fully vaccinated persons only.  Visitors must provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination to enter interpretive centres and museums.  Facemasks are required.  Additional details are available here.

School Field Trips: guidelines for schools visiting parks is available here.

Out-of-province visitors who are fully vaccinated (have received two shots and 14 days have passed since receiving the second shot) may camp in a park, providing they are not showing any symptoms of Covid-19.  Visitors who are not fully vaccinated must self-isolate for 14 days or for the duration of your stay if it is less than 14 days upon entering Manitoba.  Persons entering Manitoba who are required to self-isolate cannot do so at a campsite, unless they are residents of Manitoba and their recreational vehicle or camper trailer is their permanent residence in Manitoba and will be at one campsite location for the duration of their stay in the province, and they can self-isolate without leaving their RV or camper trailer and without interacting with other persons.  For more information, visit: https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/prs/orders/index.html

Travel to and from northern Manitoba is restricted and non-essential travel is discouraged.

People can travel to and from a provincial park, cottage, cabin, campground or hunting/fishing lodge in Northern Manitoba if they have no symptoms of COVID-19. They must limit the use of local services while travelling to and staying at their final destination. They must travel there as directly as possible based on the means of transportation used. This means that if they plan to drive there, they must drive directly there. However, for more remote locations, they may drive or fly to a northern city to be transported to their final destination.
