Stories & adventures, billions of years in the making.
With an area of 2,729 km², Whiteshell Provincial Park is characterized by numerous lakes, rivers and the rugged Precambrian Shield. Forested areas are typically boreal forest of black spruce, white spruce and balsam fir, intermixed with trembling aspen, balsam poplar, and poorly drained tamarack or black spruce fens and bogs.
Classified as a Natural Park, its purpose is to preserve areas of the Manitoba Lowlands Natural Region and provide a diversity of recreational opportunities and resource uses.
