With less than a week to go before the first camping reservations open in Manitoba provincial parks, now is a good time to confirm your online user name and password.
The province says that, last year, three-quarters of their reservations happened online — triple the number from a decade ago — and they are adjusting their service to match demand.
Cabins, yurts and group-use areas will open for reservations at 7 a.m. on Monday, March 25. Regular campsite reservations begin the first Monday in April. This year, that is April 1.
Online reservations will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The call centre will be open varying hours, during the times that the people are most likely to call — generally mornings. It's a toll-free number, 1-888-482-2267.
Walk-in reservations are also available at 200 Salteaux Cres. in Winnipeg, during normal business hours.
Cabin and yurt reservations require a two-night minimum.
Accounts for online reservations can be set up at http://prspub.gov.mb.ca.
