Free Park Entry Dates

Vehicle permits are not required during the following periods:

  • February 1-29, free for the entire month.
  • Family Fishing Weekend (June 12-14)
  • Canada’s Parks Day Weekend (July 17-19)
  • Labour Day Weekend (September 4-7)

There is so much to do in Manitoba Parks. Take advantage of these free park entry dates to explore or try a new activity.

This does not include federal parks located inside Manitoba, for instance Riding Mountain National Park.

Manitobans are encouraged to take advantage of free access to all provincial parks this weekend as part of the annual Canada’s Parks Day celebrations across the country, Conservation and Climate Minister Sarah Guillemard said today.
Visitors to provincial parks will not require park vehicle permits from July 17 to 19. Nightly camping fees and fees in national parks still apply.

Visitors to provincial parks will not require park vehicle permits from July 17 to 19. Nightly camping fees and fees in national parks still apply. 
Provincial parks have seen a significant increase in visitation this year, with over 68,000 campsite reservations made this year to date, an increase of 13 per cent over 2019. Campground occupancy has increased eight and a half per cent compared to this time last year.
Parks offer a full range of physical activities in the great outdoors. Hiking, swimming, canoeing and mountain biking are all part of a healthier lifestyle. When visiting parks, remember to practise physical distancing and wash or sanitize hands frequently to protect yourself from COVID-19.




Other reminders when visiting parks include:
• Practice ‘Leave No Trace’ – always pack out everything you packed in.
• Keep dogs on leash and clean up after pets.
• Avoid busy trails. If a trailhead parking lot is full, do not park along roadways. Visit another trail to minimize impacts on the landscape.
• Be ‘Wildlife Smart’ by staying alert and secure attractants such as food, toiletries and trash. For more information on staying safe in black bear country, visit www.manitoba.ca/blackbear.
Park interpreters are offering a range of summer programs while maintaining physical distancing for COVID-19. Look for posted event details in select parks for information on amphitheatre events and campfire talks.
Manitobans are also reminded to stop the spread of invasive species to help protect provincial parks. Firewood cannot be moved out of the city of Winnipeg due to the presence of the emerald ash borer and the designation of Winnipeg as a federally regulated area.  Anyone caught transporting firewood could face fines or charges. Firewood should always be obtained and burned locally.
