We know that Manitobans love to enjoy the great outdoors and there is always a lot of excitement around the beginning of camping season. We want to ensure the process for campground bookings is fair, efficient and reliable. With this year’s staggered reservation dates, we hope to relieve Manitobans of the stress of booking their favourite provincial campsites.
— Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox

There are also numerous backcountry camping opportunities, which are on a first-come, first-served basis, with a few select locations in Nopiming Provincial Park available through the park reservation service

Don't forget about the Park Explorer Pass ($40) which serves as your entry vehicle permit into Manitoba’s provincial parks. It is valid from May 1, 2017 until April 30, 2018 and can also be purchased at provincial park offices.
