Mark your calendars! Reservations for campgrounds in provincial parks are set to open on Monday, April 8. 

“Manitoba is home to some spectacular parks and as warmer weather approaches, more and more Manitobans are preparing to book quality time out in nature,” said Environment and Climate Change Minister Tracy Schmidt. “As a parent who takes their children camping every year, I know how important a fast, convenient reservation system is. Our government has taken steps to streamline the booking process so Manitobans can reserve their favourite sites headache-free.”

As in previous years, reservations will be staggered over five days to accommodate the high demand and make it easier for Manitobans to book their favourite campground. 

Leading up to reservation day, Manitobans are encouraged to check their accounts and passwords and remind themselves of reservation rules. 

An enhanced virtual waiting room and queuing system will be used during opening days to allow online users to have a better experience. 

In previous years, while trying to book a campsite, Manitobans experienced technical issues with the website. In 2023, the province launched a new Parks Reservation Service that has helped things to roll more smoothly.

On opening day, the Parks Reservation Service online and call centre services will begin at 7 a.m. online at, 204-948-3333 (in Winnipeg) or 1 888-482-2267 (toll-free).
