Flooding May Delay Opening in
Some Areas

Manitoba Environment, Climate and Parks is advising all provincial park visitors to carefully check and continue to monitor conditions before heading to provincial parks this spring.

Some campgrounds may have delayed opening dates due to the late arrival of spring and some provincial parks are experiencing overland flooding, causing some road and trail closures.

Manitoba Parks staff is closely monitoring this evolving situation and assessing conditions daily. A list of campground closures and service reductions will be kept updated at

Reservation holders and seasonal campers will be contacted if their campsite is affected by a closure. Services such as drinking water and washrooms may also be limited or reduced in some areas as a result of late spring conditions which are delaying the seasonal setup and operation of water lines. Campers are advised to plan accordingly for potential service reductions and pack adequate drinking water.

Some trails in Whiteshell Provincial Park are also closed due to overland flooding. Trail closures and advisories are available at

Park visitors are asked to report any significant trail flooding or maintenance concerns to the local park district office.

Park visitors should also check for road closures and potential detours before travelling to parks.
