On entering the park, even for day use you must purchase and display a vehicle pass. The North side was closed, so we drove around the south side checking out the campground for future visits. Services, where available are minimal and some roads are not appropriate for big rigs. We did enjoy a pleasant walk around the beach and then... More

Rushing River Provincial Park has been my favourite camping park for over 50 years. There are numerous swimming and hiking areas . My favourite swimming area is the main beach area where people can swim out to a large rocky area. Across the highway is a walkway along the river which eventually crosses the river with a spectacular bridge that... More

Definitely a great and popular camping location, if you like swimming, hiking, or just relaxing! Rushing River is linked with Dogtooth Lake which is fabulous for boating and skiing, but, you need a map to know where the rocks are. Some rocks are marked but others are not! Great place to bring the family!

It is smart to book early if you can so you can get the best site for your purposes. We stayed there 10 days and could have stayed another week if it was available. Long weekends are booked very early. We camped on the north shore and were able to eat wild blueberries every morning. The water is wonderfully clean... More

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
