Riding Mountain National Park open this Thanksgiving long weekend

Manitoba’s Riding Mountain National Park will be open for the Thanksgiving Long Weekend.

The park reminds visitors that the bison enclosure and Lake Audy Campground are closed for this year.

In addition, access to the escarpment trails on the East end of the park can only be accessed from Highway 5 as Provincial Highway 19 is closed from Lake Katherine to the Historic East Gate.

Visitors are also reminded to review bear safe hiking practices and to secure all unattended wildlife attractants – such as coolers, drinks, hygiene products, garbage, and pet food – because failure to do so could result in a fine from Park Wardens.

Park officials also said that while the park is open year-round, local businesses are subject to their own hours and encourage people to call businesses ahead of time to ensure they’re open upon arrival.

The Visitor Centre is open daily from 9-5.
