Quite a few of us from Manitoba here! What was the problem with the reservation system? We haven't used it this year yet! Happy camping!

We are from Manitoba as well, we have a seasonal site and one of the reasons we took a seasonal is the parks reservation system. We used to wait on line for hours and then when you got thru you would have to know exactly what weekends you wanted. Finally got fed up with it and went seasonal. All this makes it very hard for tourists trying to find spots on way thru Manitoba to Ontario etc. They need to really fix up this system.
P.S. With all this snow, will we even get out camping this year??

Not sure what the answer is. Got on the MB site yesterday in 30 seconds to discover 3474 campers in line ahead of me. Didn't get the sites I wanted but will have to do. A lot of campers chasing certain sites or dates. Lottery maybe for prime times???

Hopefully spring weather soon here!

The first year Sask had online reservations, the system sucked big time for the same reasons you guys have. This year they broke the reservations down into regions and each region had staggered days you could reserve. Worked great as it took me less than 5 minutes to get the site I wanted on the July 1st long weekend. A big hello to you guys over in Manitoba as well..

As I said earlier there appears to be a few Manitobans on this forum. Would anybody be interested in a get together sometime this summer, and possibly plan a frog rally for the following year (2014) in Manitoba?
