Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba
Located approximately 100 km north of Brandon, Riding Mountain National Park is an island of wilderness surrounded by a sea of farmland, boasting 3000 km2 of rugged nature just waiting to be explored. Riding Mountain is unique in the way that it's 1 of only 5 national parks that has a resort townsite. Although small in size, the picturesque town of Wasagaming is big in charm and character. Located along the shores of Clear Lake, Wasagaming, which bustles on busy summer days, is home to a variety of shops, restaurants, beach, golf course, boat rentals and tours to name a few. The original Parks Canada Visitor Centre remains, built in the Rustic Design tradition of the 1930's, reminding us of the early days of Canada's national parks system.
