The province announced Wednesday it is freezing provincial park pass and camping fees. 

In 2020, the Manitoba government announced it was signing a contract with an American-based service provider to administer the park pass program. The fees associated with the contract were scheduled to increase this year. However, the province has put aside $46 million in its 2024 budget to allow them to freeze fees. 

“Manitobans are starting to plan trips to our beautiful provincial parks, and our government knows affordability is top of mind for many families,” said Environment and Climate Change Minister Tracy Schmidt. “That’s why we’re freezing provincial park pass fees and camping fees this season."

To make it even more affordable, the province also offers free provincial park entry several times a year, including a week in July, the Labour Day long weekend and the entire month of February. 

Upcoming free provincial park entry dates include:

  • June 7 to 9;
  • July 15 to 21;
  • Aug. 30 to Sept. 2; and
  • Feb. 1 to 28, 2025.
