Riding Mountain National Park offers several spectacular campsites, including at Lake Audy, above. Campers can go online to make reservations for the summer season starting Monday.

WASAGAMING — Parks Canada has cranked up its online reservation system for the summer season and campers can reserve their camping experience in Riding Mountain National Park starting Monday.

Online reservations have become popular over the past few years and, as of 2013, all reservations are now on a site-specific basis.

This means guests are able to select and reserve their exact campsite or accommodation.

Campers interested in reserving a campsite, yurt or oTENTik in the Wasagaming Campground in Riding Mountain National Park can make a reservation starting at 8 a.m. on Monday.

Camping reservations can be made 24 hours a day, seven days a week at reservation.pc.gc.ca or by calling 1-877-RESERVE (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

Here are some quick facts about camping at Riding Mountain.

• The Wasagaming Campground offers 86 full serviced, 74 water and electricity, 73 electricity and 278 unserviced camping sites.

• There are 10 oTENTiks in the Wasagaming Campground. Resembling a traditional prospector tent, the oTENTiks offer a more spacious and comfortable camping experience. The tents have sturdy wooden frames with canvas covering a wood laminate floor and are equipped with lanterns, table and seating, and beds that sleep up to four adults or a family of six.

• The yurt in Wasagaming Campground is more permanent and consists of a wood frame enveloped in canvas and equipped with windows and a solid door. It is constructed on a hard wood floor and is five metres in diameter. It can house four adults or a family of five and has a skylight, heater and solar lighting. The rustic style furniture has been chosen to match the architecture of Riding Mountain National Park and is made locally.

• Spectacular campsites are also found at Lake Audy, Whirlpool Lake and Moon Lake. To continue meeting the needs of campers who prefer not to reserve in advance, campsites will be available in these locations on a first come first served basis.

• Why should you plan a visit to Riding Mountain National Park? The options are endless, but here are just a few of the things you can look forward to this summer:

• Canada Day celebrations (free admission) — July 1

• Clear Lake Day — July 12

• Canada’s Parks Day — July 19

• Wasagaming Weekend — Aug. 8-11

• Riding Mountain Triathlon — Aug. 16-17

• Boo in the Park — Aug. 23

• The August Concert in the Park — Aug. 23

"Riding Mountain National Park provides all the amenities, outdoor activities and special events you could ask for, making it the prime tourism destination in Manitoba," said Richard Dupuis, visitor experience manager for the park.

"We are excited about offering our visitors another great summer experience in 2014."
