WHITESHELL WATER UPDATE: JUNE 15

Posted on: June 15, 2022  |   , ,

Manitoba Parks provided the following shorter update today to highlight the changes

Whiteshell Daily Update: June 15, 2022

Water levels are slowly receding or remaining stable throughout the park, with only Star Lake seeing a slight increase today due to the recent rainfall. Manitoba Parks is continuing to work with Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure (MTI) on a plan for safe access to Betula Lake. The water on PR307 south of Betula Lake, north of the junction of PR309 and 307 continues to recede slowly and it is being monitored on a daily basis.

Manitoba Parks is also actively working towards re-stablishing park access for seasonal campers in the campgrounds impacted by the Winnipeg River. The assessment of campground facilities that support these campgrounds is ongoing, as well as discussions regarding the re-establishment of regular highway access.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure removed a log from the West Hawk Control structure this afternoon

Recent rainfall in the south Whiteshell has also set back the opening of trails in the area.  The Marsh Trail (between Falcon Lake Marina and Beach Campground), Whiteshell River, and Hunt Lake hiking trails remain closed.

Please check ManitobaParks.com for detailed closures or contact the Parks info line for water, flood and closures: 204-340-6769 between 8am and 6pm daily.
