Manitoba’s Provincial Park Entry Waived Again for 2011

Admission into provincial parks will be waived again for the third year in a row.

Conservation Minister Bill Blaikie made the announcement Tuesday, also noting there will not be an increase to camping fees.

“We want more people to have the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and experience the beauty of our provincial parks,” Blaikie said in a release. “Manitobans want increased investments in their parks and we are pleased that this year will see even more exciting new projects while keeping camping affordable for families.”

Reservations opened February 7 for provincially-run cabins, yurts and group-use camping sites. Seasonal draws around the province began February 28 and campsite reservations will open April 4 through the Parks Reservation Service.

While provincial park entry has been waived, campground fees still apply.
