The state of local emergency in Whiteshell Provincial Park will end today.

The state of local emergency in the northern Whiteshell area was initially declared on May 20th.

Manitoba Parks is thanking all park users for their patience, perseverance and ongoing co-operation this season. Parks staff continue to closely monitor the evolving high water situation, assess conditions daily, and co-ordinate with multiple agencies in its preparedness and response. 

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure is continuing repairs of Provincial Road (PR) 307 in the north Whiteshell area from Seven Sisters Falls to Rennie. Motorists should expect delays when travelling in the park, use caution and drive slowly when coming up to or passing work crews. 

High water conditions continue to pose a risk to public safety in some areas. All park visitors are reminded to check and carefully monitor conditions prior to heading to provincial parks. Park visitors are reminded to obey road and trail closures and not attempt to drive through flooded areas or across damaged bridges. 

Some provincial park campground and trail closures remain in effect in various parts of Manitoba. Future rainfall may continue to make wet conditions worse in several campgrounds across the province, which could result in additional partial campsite closures. 

Campsite reservation holders will be contacted if they are affected by a campsite closure and can then request a full refund or move their reservation to another available location. Campers should not pre-emptively cancel reservations before being notifiedof a site closure, otherwise cancellation policies will apply.
