Located a relaxing 2 1/2 hours northwest of Winnipeg. North 202 kms (126 miles) via PTH #6 to the lighted junction at PR #239, then west (left) 15 kms (9 miles) towards the picturesque village of Steep Rock. Turn off the pavement north (right) on Kyler Road for 3 kms (1.9 miles) then turn west (left) on Lakeshore Road for 1 km (.6 miles) until you come to the welcoming red archway overlooking the entrance to the Park. Turn north (right) into the entrance driveway, straight to the Park Office to register your arrival.
Why Steep Rock Beach?:
Kick back and relax in your choice of large well-treed, private campsites or more open, breezy campsites. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful atmosphere, lush green foliage, abundant wildlife and dramatic sunsets. Swim in the crystal clear shallow waters or just laze on the sandy beach and soak up the hot summer sun.
Not enough action? Then play an exhilerating game of either beach or grass volleyball, basketball or tennis; start a game of touch football or toss the frisbee around in one of the spacious game fields; maybe take a family bike ride through the Park, canoe the scenic waters of Lake Manitoba or even hike the natural trails along the unique limestone cliffs that line the shore. If adventure is what it is all about, explore the limestone caves - the kids will go "batty" when they see the little brown creatures in their natural habitat! Enjoy scheduled Entertainment on the July long weekend, take a day trip and view the local attractions or participate in the many events in the surrounding communities throughout the summer.
Exhausted from all that activity? Enjoy a delicious dinner at the Beachside Cafe and then spend a tranquil evening sitting on the deck gazing out over the water while the kids have fun cruising between the beach and multi-structure playground. Stroll hand-in-hand back to your campsite under the twinkling stars or, if you're lucky, the absolute wonder of the dancing northern lights. Fall asleep listening to the soothing croak of frogs and the haunting refrain of the whip-poor-will.
If you're an early riser, you might catch a glimpse of a doe and her two fawns walking right through your site on their way to the creek for water. There can't be a better start to the day than that!
That still leaves lots of time to do some bird-watching along the network of walking trails around the Park, maybe even pick a pail of berries that are in season while you're out there. Wind-surf on the open lake or just sit and eat an ice-cream cone on the beachfront. Pick up a Steep Rock Beach t-shirt or hat at the Park Office - that sun is bright, so you might even want to grab a pair of those monogrammed sunglasses and some sunscreen! It's your holiday - do whatever you want ...
Share with your family and friends! Plan a memorable wedding day or your next family reunion at the Entertainment Centre complete with outdoor stage and dance floor. Plans are now underway for the construction of a Pavillion which will greatly enhance any activities at the Park.
