It’s finally here! The camping season is now open, and the Eastman Region is ready! Pack-up the camper or grab your tents and sleeping bags for a night, week, or even a month’s stay at your favourite campsite! Feel like trying out a new campground? No problem! Check out our list of 5 Eastman Campgrounds that you just have to visit this summer!

Please note: Due to COVID-19, some activities and amenities may be closed or restricted in some campsites. Please call or email campgrounds before reserving your camping experience for information about new rules and regulations put in place.

For information about Government-mandated rules and regulations towards camping, please visit this link to the Government of Manitoba’s website.  

*Disclaimer* Time in nature has not been cancelled, but we must be responsible for helping everyone stay safe and healthy! Here are some guidelines to follow while exploring your community:

  • Stay home if you have been travelling or do not feel well. Here is an excellent resource if you are quarantined. This will help you find people in Manitoba who are willing and able to help you while quarantined. Help Next Door Manitoba
  • Go out with people within your household, but practice social distancing (2 metres away) with other groups.
  • Stay within your community. Please do not travel to other communities.
  • Please practice Leave No Trace. Clean up after yourself and leave nothing behind such as trash and waste.
  • Check with your local municipality if play structures in parks and schools are open.
  • Social distancing can be easier in rural communities because we live farther apart from each other. If you live in a condo or apartment, please follow the guidelines provided to you to ensure you keep your social distance from your neighbors.
