Whiteshell Provincial Park

Whiteshell Provincial Park

About a 1.5-hour drive east of Winnipeg is the Whiteshell Provincial Park. The landscape is typical of the Canadian Shield, with hills, lakes, valleys, forests, and rivers. Moose, deer, and black bear inhabit the park.

Cottages dot the shorelines of many of the lakes, but much of the wilderness area is undisturbed. The resorts of Falcon Lake and West Hawk Lake further east offer fine beaches, sailing, and waterskiing. The Whiteshell is a popular summer destination for Winnipeggers looking to get away from the heat of city and spend some time by the lake.
