With Lake Manitoba to the east and the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border to the west, Parkland is the region of Manitoba where the southern grasslands give way to the northern woods. Home to clear, spring-fed lakes, rushing rivers, and dense forests, Parkland cottage rentals provide visitors with an opportunity to explore wilderness and wildlife.
Home to over 10,000 square kilometres of nationally and provincially designated parks and forest reserves, including Duck Mountain Provincial Park, Riding Mountain National Park, and Kettle Stones Provincial Park - known for its landscape of sandstone formations - Parkland is a place to experience classic Canadian scenery while enjoying outdoor recreation and relaxation.
In the summer, hiking, biking and hunting opportunities abound, while the region’s lakes and rivers are premiere destinations for fishing, waterskiing, windsurfing and swimming. In addition to Lake Manitoba, be sure to check out Clear Lake, the clearest lake in the southern prairies, as well as East Blue Lake and Lake of the Prairies. In the winter months, travelers can snowmobile, x-country ski and hit the slopes at Asessippi Ski Area. All year-round, the region is a wildlife viewing hot-spot, boasting an incredible range of wildlife species, including cougars, black bears, lynxes, and moose.
Offering natural and outdoor attractions just a couple hours’ drive west of Winnipeg, Parkland is a beautiful region to rent a cottage in Manitoba.+ More
