This Summer, dogs and cats will now be allowed at no extra charge in designated pet-friendly cabins and yurts in Manitoba Provincial Parks.
”We know Manitoba families love their pets and consider them a member of the family, so we are pleased to offer pet-friendly initiatives such as dog-friendly swimming and off‑leash areas,” said Minister Mackintosh. “Campers welcomed the idea when we introduced these options last year and our government continues to make family-friendly improvements so visitors can enjoy all that our parks have to offer.”
Yellow Quill Provincial Park in Portage la Prairie has been established as an off-leash dog area, while 17 other parks such as Winnipeg Beach and Hecla Island have dog-friendly swimming areas identified.
Pet-friendly cabins are located at:
- Hecla: 5 cabins
- Camp Morton: 4 cabins.
Pet-friendly yurts will be found at:
- Camp Morton: 2
- Stephenfield: 2
- Nutimik: 4
- Asessippi: 2
- Spruce Woods: 4
- Childs Lake: 2
- Bakers Narrows: 2
- Campers Cove: 2
