Know Before You Go

Before heading out on your Riding Mountain adventure, please be aware that Parks Canada has prohibited the use of motorized boats as well as canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards on Clear Lake this summer. These measures are to facilitate detection of zebra mussels and decrease the risk of spread, to better ensure the future health of the lake. Swimming is still permitted, along with fishing from shore or wharfs, the use of beach toys and personal flotation devices. For further information about Clear Lake watercraft restrictions, click here.

Covering three different ecosystems—grasslands, upland boreal and eastern deciduous forests—Riding Mountain offers diverse terrain to explore and a variety of wildlife to discover. Riding Mountain National Park is also only one of five Canadian national parks that has a resort town.

Hike, swim, camp and spend time in the natural beauty of Riding Mountain National Park

This year-round hotspot is known for all things that make exploring the outdoors great. Here, you can hike, boat, view wildlife, camp, skate, cross-country ski and kayak to your heart’s content.

Summer offers unforgettable days spent on the crystal-clear waters of Clear Lake and Deep Bay; while autumn’s brilliant foliage will captivate you as it paints the escarpment in hues of orange, red and yellow. In the winter, the park becomes a snowy wonderland where you can stay in a four-season oTENTik or take part in a winter festival.
