Things to Do

Walk over the Whiteshell River Suspension Bridge and take the trail to Sturgeon Falls where the rapids are a favourite splashing spot. Stop at The Bannock Point Petroforms, a sacred site with stones laid in the shapes of snakes, turtles and a Thunderbird. For the hiking enthusiast, Pine Rapids offers a variety of trails for all skill level trails. Dragon Fire Trail is an easier hike that leads to the top of the rockface for stunning views of West Hawk Lake. Cool off at Rainbow Falls where you can spend the day swimming. Soak in the sun and pristine water at West Hawk Lake’s beautiful beaches. Go for a horseback ride at Falcon Lake or hit the links at Falcon Lake Golf Course.

Places to Eat

Camping in the Whiteshell requires meal planning for your campfire cookouts. If you run out of grub or get tired of living on a diet of s’mores, visit the town of West Hawk Lake. You can restock your groceries and take a break from cooking by visiting one of the local restaurants. Enjoy a burger at Nite Hawk Café, or grab an ice cream from Meteor Mike’s.
