“DOWN BY THE RIVER”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Tried to make it to Manitoba but ran out of daylight. Landed up camping at Rushing River Provincial Park for $41. Nice clean site with gravel ground to pitch tent. Beautiful view of the river. People were swimming at the beach until the sun went down. Quiet spot, all we could hear was the water running. Had a small campfire with wood and sticks we collected around our area. Warden said there were 2 bears spotted a day ago. We did not meet any during our stay. Thank you! When leaving in the morning saw more of the beauty of the site. Too bad we could not have stayed here longer. Definitely would have swam in the rapids or canoed.

“Loved it so much, we return every year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The park is beautiful, there are multiple hiking trails with beautiful scenery. Some of the camp sites are a little close together but the one we had was completely private and stunning. There was a ton of space for us to set up our tent, Gazebo, & have our dog roam around. The lake is clean and gorgeous. We had ducks wander up from the lake into our camp site. Canoes are available, there are multiple islands to canoe out to for a picnic lunch. New bathrooms & showers in the campground.

“Beautiful....what more can you say?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The park is well cared for. Beautiful scenery whether you are on the lake or on a hiking trail. Camping, swimming, rent a canoe, take a hike or just sit and relax. Make sure to check out the "rushing" part of Rushing River.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The water falls are amazing. Very quiet. Camp sites on the river are some of the best camp sites you will ever stay at. Great place for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. Swimming in the waterfalls is a blast.

“a long time favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

growing up around here, it was always a summer treat to spend the day out here. I hadn't been back in almost 15 years, and it was still a wonderful visit, plenty of walking trails, sunning spots, and water adventure.
It was nice to see the addition of the canoe & kayak rentals, as well as the new camping sites over on the Dogtooth Lake side.
We brought bbq coals & hot dogs for grilling - it was just like old times.
