The Riding Mountain National Park (RMNP) is one of Manitoba’s National Park along with Wapusk National Park located in Churchill. The RMNP is about a 3-hour drive west of Winnipeg. The drive towards this destination is fairly straight forward. This was the first time I drove outside the city and despite the long ours of driving the view gets better as you get closer to the park.
The park is surrounded by lodgings that can accommodate every kind of adventurer. Campsites, trailer camping, oTENTiks, resorts and hotels are within a short drive from Wasagaming Drive. For our trip, we opted to try the oTENTiks for a more hassle-free but nature engaging experience. The oTENTiks appears to be a mix between a tent and a cabin with wooden floors and canvas siding. It is furnished with bunk beds to accommodate the whole family. There is heating, lighting and electrical outlets available in the site. The best part was propane barbecue grill included in the reservation. So, we cooked and ate to until we were full.
Visitors can take part in many outdoor activities while enjoying the cool breeze and the warm sun. During the operating season visitors can rent bicycles, hike the trails, enjoy the tennis court and play mini golf. For visitors that enjoy water activities, paddle boats, kayaks and motor boats are available to be rented. The business site is lined by various local stores including the White House Bakery that is famous for its Cinnamon Rolls. There is a local grocery store that offers produce, grocery items and essentials just in case you did miss to pack your toiletries. For a better itinerary I would recommend stopping by the Visitor Centre to get the advice of the staff. Within the Visitor centre there is also the chance to go around and marvel at the display of stuffed wild animals.
