Explore: Adam Lake (Turtle Mountain)

Easy to access in Turtle Mountain Provincial Park is Adam Lake and Campground. Located 3 hours from downtown Winnipeg, Adam Lake offers electrical sites as well as a beautiful overflow camping area.

There is a really nice beach area by the campground, and lots of walking paths and trails to hike on. There is also a fitness trail with lots of different fitness activities on it (we, of course, did every single one of them! 😅). The campground itself is nice, clean and the spots are not too close to each other.

Things to do while camping at Adam Lake:

  • hang out at the beach – there’s also a playground (we tested out the swings, and maybe even a slide, but did not harm any children in our shenanigans)
  • do the fitness trail walk (it’s a pretty little walk even if you don’t do the fitness activities)
  • Hike the Adam Lake trail – it’s beautiful.
  • Walk to the Moose lookout tower (apparently you may be able to see Moose from it)
  • Take a side trip to hike the Turtle Back Mountain
  • Check out the International Peace Gardens, which are just down the road and worth the trip. Note: there is an admission cost of $20/car.
  • Go for ice cream or a tour around the wildlife museum 15 minutes away in Boissevain




Sharing our passion of exploring the 204 (Manitoba, Canada) From scenic hikes, to small town day trips, to places to grub. Not only will we be explaining how to get there, we'll share personal experiences too! P.S : Most of these exciting and delicious experiences are in rural Manitoba. Enjoy.
