Whiteshell Provincial Park cottage rentals are situated in southeastern Manitoba, nestled amongst trembling aspen, black and white spruce, and balsam fir. With an area of almost 2,800 square kilometres, the parkland is a beautiful landscape of boreal forests, lakes and rivers and offers one of the best southern views of the Northern Lights.
The park’s trails cater to hikers, horseback riders, mountain bikers, and walkers in the summer, and cross-country skiers, snowshoers, and snowmobilers in the winter. Further, as the home of 13 freshwater lakes and several rivers, Whiteshell is a water-sport hotspot, providing endless opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, and sailing as well as fishing and ice fishing for perch, trout, walleye, and white fish. In addition, golfers can enjoy hitting the links at Falcon Lake Golf Course or Pinawa Golf Club and alpine skiers and snowboarders can hit the slopes at the nearby family-friendly Falcon Ridge Ski and Recreation Area, which also hosts a winter carnival known as “Beaver Days”.
The provincial park boasts an incredible range of wildlife species—including bald eagles, black bear, lynx, mink, moose, owls, and wolves—making Whiteshell a perfect place to go wildlife and bird viewing in southern Manitoba. The park also protects and profiles archaeological and historical sites, including turtle and snake boulder mosaics.
As a well-developed tourist hotspot an hour’s drive east of Winnipeg, Whiteshell Provincial Park is a great place to rent a cottage in Manitoba.+ More
