Things to Do

For a fun afternoon just outside Winnipeg, hop onboard the Prairie Dog Central Railway at Inkster Junction to take a scenic trip to the town of Grosse Isle.

For a longer trip, drive north on Highway 6 to Rubber Ducky Resort and Campground with its stocked rainbow trout pond, mini golf course and outdoor movie theatre.

Continue north and stop at towns along the highway for more adventure. Spend time at Lundar Beach Provincial Park with its natural marshlands and beach. Visit town for the Lundar Museum. See how butter was made back in the day at Eriksdale Creamery Museum and check out Ashern Pioneer Museum, which is housed in an old CNR station. Be sure to visit its post office and log cabin.

Take a short detour off Highway 6 to Steep Rock, where photo-worthy views atop its majestic cliffs will take your breath away. Get out on the lake’s blue waters to paddle a short distance to Goat Island (don’t forget to pack a little snack for the goats).

Places to Eat

Plan on bringing your own picnic spread for a shore lunch or snacks during the day. There are also quick food options on Highway 6 at Eriksdale, Lundar and Ashern at gas stations, fast food outlets and local hotels.
