It's beautiful, snag a camping spot in April for the summer months

This spot is gorgeous. And popular. You need to book WELL in advance for a camping spot, but a day trip from Winnipeg or Kenora is def recommended.

Rushing river offers much for a family with teens- from the falls you can swim and slid down, numerous hiking trails, fishing or relaxing at the beach- Rushing River is a great spot to hang out!

We reserved ahead of time online and were disappointed to find there was a $9 service charge for booking online. Seemed odd to pay for that service. Many of the sites are across large pieces of rock and would be okay for Camper vans, trailers and RVs depending on the site, however not suitable for tents as there is no... More

It was our first visit and we where extremely disappointed with our site. (#12). There where large areas with standing water that smelt like a swamp with lots of mosquitos . Even the landing pad for the trailer was constantly soaked as where the areas around the fire place and picnic area. The site was unusable ! And frankly many... More

On our cross Canada trip this was one of our favourite stops. We are so glad we stayed. Gorgeous campsite right on the lake, super friendly for kids with a variety of swimming beaches, playgrounds and great short hikes. Bring a paddleboard or rent a canoe. The lake is wonderful to explore.

We had so much fun swimming here. A really fun, beautiful and unique experience. Will definitely go again. Id say it's a must to visit here for a day if you are vacationing in Kenora and like a good beach day

Beautiful park for camping with the family. The sites are well kept, however a little wet and muddy this year because of all of the rain. We were in site 36 and it was a swamp, but the 2 sites on the inside of the bay with us are our friends, so we had somewhere else to enjoy the outdoors... More

You can never go wrong when you spend time at Rushing River. We spent many summers here with our parents . Clear water, beautiful campsites, peace and quiet, 2 sandy beaches and amazing nature. We rented a kajak and took a tour out on Dogtooth Lake. So beautiful and serene. The loons sang a small concert so our day was... More

Stayed here recently overnight it's a nice park just too bad with all the rain it literally puts a damper on things very wet and soggy in our campsite. The hiking trails were not in good shape due to alot of water so didn't get to finish any of the trails. Beach areas are kinda small but good for younger... More
