many restaurants, go canoeing, rent a party barge to swim from,
hike an old Hudson’s Bay Trail, shop for local antiques and
gifts, or how about trail riding by quad or horse back, and don't
forget the snowmobiling and cross country skiing in the winter.
We have a managed trail over 300 km long to explore on your own
or with a guide. Year round there is a flurry of activities...rodeos,
ATV races, fairs, flea markets, fishing derbies, ski competitions,
or just come, sit back and do some armchair wildlife viewing.

stores, gift shops, liquor and food stores, all you really need
to bring is your excitement for nature and the great outdoors or
your love of fishing.
