Also from Mb and live 2 miles from Birds Hill Park. Got on the Mb parks reservation site and waited for my flashing dot to move up the line. Frustrating waiting and took about 1/2 hour. Got Adam Lake, Stephenfield and Hecla booked for various times over the summer. We are heading to Lethbridge, AB this summer to see the kids and we had to book Mb, Sk and Ab which was an adventure given each province had different start dates for reservation. Couldnt get a spot at Cypruss Hills, Ab so we are at Dinosaur Prov Park an Ab. Sask reservations opened up in early March, Mb was April 1 and Ab is a 90 rolling reservation system so for July 12th date I couldnt book until April 13th. Canada Federal Park in Mb, Clear Lake, opened for reservations on April 8 and unlike last year I got in the que bright and early and waited about 20 min to get my full service spot. Luckily we got campsites booked out and back for a 3 1/2 week trip in July plus another 2 weeks in Aug. Now the snow needs to melt.
When I was young you just packed up the camper and went to a campground. None of this prebooking months in advance. DW retires next year and we can camp off season so that should make it easier.
