  • Go out with people within your household, but practice social distancing (2 metres away) with other groups.
  • Please call ahead before visiting a business and inquire about their regulations to enter the building, such as capacity, sanitation, etc. Also, consider using curbside pickup where possible.

Trail End Camp & Outfitters (Pointe du Bois)

If you are looking for the perfect fishing adventure, then you just found it at Trail End Camp & Outfitters. Trail End is located in Pointe du Bois along the Winnipeg River, where Walleye and Smallmouth Bass won’t be hard to catch – especially with an experienced guide by your side! With the perfect mix of activities and comfortable accommodations, you don’t want to miss out on this exciting adventure.

Spend your days out on the water with their boat rental, or if you need some help finding the best spot to fish, try out their guides and charters, including a boat, guide, bait, any required tackle, and a shore lunch.

Or if hunting is more your style, you can do that here too. Hunters that are guests stay in their fully modern waterfront cabins, equipped with televisions, satellite cable service, and all the amenities of home. The comfort level is first class. Meals are prepared and served in the main lodge and dining area, and as past customers will attest, Maureen’s meals are second to none. When in season, you can try your hand at bagging black bears, whitetail deer, and waterfowl.

When your adventures are over, and you need some R&R, it’s time to head back to your full-service cabin. Enjoy Lakefront views and private docks to really take in those magnificent sunsets. Cook up a storm on your propane barbeque and enjoy a meal together on the deck or the screened-in porch.

All cabins are equipped with full kitchens, three-piece bathrooms, living rooms, great cell reception, and double or single beds equipped with linens.

Enjoy your new home away from home that offers comfort, relaxation, and incredible fun memories.

Paddle at Caddy Lake

To venture into Caddy Lake, some experience in paddling would be best. With swift currents in the rock tunnels and choppy waves occurring at times . . . but it is definitely worth it!

This beautiful canoe route is lined with gorgeous mature trees and provides many opportunities to observe the diverse wildlife of Eastern Manitoba. Along the way, you’ll discover several private campsites that are on a first-come, first-serve basis. The campsites are the perfect place to stretch your legs, enjoy a picnic, have a getaway weekend, or getting up close to the breathtaking nature that will surround you.

Caddy Lake probably has one of the most interesting history. The two tunnels that are on this route are one of Manitoba’s best sights to be seen. These man-made tunnels were blasted through the solid granite rock when the railways were put in to allow the natural flow of water for the Whiteshell river system.
