Information for Park Visitors


Critical

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


  • Practice physical distancing in provincial parks. Keep two metres away from other individuals at all times.
  • Restrict your park visit to members of your household.  Do not gather in a group of more than five people, unless all persons in the group reside in the same residence. The fundamentals must still be practiced if gathered including physical distancing, wearing a mask and frequent handwashing. 

  • Masks must be worn inside all buildings including washrooms.
  • Wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer regularly.
  • 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.

Please bring your own toilet paper and hand sanitizer.

Practice Leave No Trace. Pack out everything you packed in including trash and waste, and keep pets on a short leash.

Only visit local health centres if it is an emergency.

Park Offices are closed.  Services may be provided by appointment.  Park vehicle permits and licenses for hunting, fishing and trapping can be purchased and printed before you visit online at www.manitobaelicensing.ca

Ice Fishing Shacks: Ice fishing shacks or tents may be used if all persons using the shack/tent reside in the same residence, or have been authorized to attend that residence.

Outdoor skating and hockey rinks: Practice physical distancing from anyone not in your household.  Warm-up shelters are closed.

Toboggan Hills & Playgrounds: Keep two metres away from other users and do not gather in groups.  Warm-up shelters are closed.

Trails: Avoid busy trails. If a parking lot is full, do not park along roadways. Postpone your visit or use a different trail system.  Keep two metres away from other trail users.  Trail shelters and backcountry cabins are closed.  Non-modern washrooms along trails are not maintained regularly – bring your own toilet paper and hand sanitizer.

Out-of-province visitors from all jurisdictions must self-isolate for 14 days or for the duration of your stay if it is less than 14 days. For more information, visit: https://manitoba.ca/covid19/restartmb/prs/orders/index.html#self-isolation

Northern Region

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. 

Additional information on northern travel restrictions are found here.
