The local state of emergency that has been impacting people's ability to get to Whiteshell provincial park is slated to end today.

The state of emergency initially began on May 20th and Manitoba Parks is excited to see more visitors for the remainder of the summer. They will also continue to monitor conditions as well as the high water situation to ensure the safety of campers.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure will still be working on PR 307 in the northern Whiteshell area from Seven Sisters Falls to Rennie. The province asks that you exercise caution while traveling near working crews.

All campers are advised to check for conditions before going to the park, as well as obey all road signs while not attempting to drive through flooded roads. Some areas of the camp may still be affected by high water.

Campsite reservation holders will be contacted by the province if their reservation is impacted by any closures. Campers affected can either request a refund or change the times of their reservation.
