Manitoba Hydro (Gillam)

Located along the Nelson River, it is accessible by rail, air, and car via PR 280 from Thompson. The area offers fishing, hunting, boating, snowmobiling, camping, swimming (indoor and outdoor). Enjoy the aurora borealis viewing and the Firefighters' Rodeo in early June. Gillam is also Manitoba's hydro capital with three large hydro-generating stations (Kettle, Long Spruce and Limestone) and two converter stations (Radisson and Henday).
