Backcountry camping

Backcountry camping reservations are now available online: Parks Canada Reservations. Step into the untouched wilderness of Riding Mountain and experience the park in a new way. As a backcountry user, you can access hidden gems not seen by most visitors.

Planning

In the backcountry of Riding Mountain, you will find maintained hiking trails and designated campsites with a fire pit, firewood, pit privy, picnic table, and a bear proof food storage container. Pre-trip planning and preparedness is essential for travel in the backcountry. These are wilderness areas and all precautions should be taken.

Trail conditions, levels of difficulty, distance between campsites, mode of travel, water availability, bear activity, and weather forecast and conditions are all factors to be considered before and during your trip.

Safety

When planning a trip into the backcountry of Riding Mountain National Park, at least one person in your party should be able to recognize natural hazards and have experience in wilderness first aid. Caution and self-reliance are essential.

  • Know your physical limits.
  • Inform friends or family of your itinerary.
  • Ensure that you have adequate food, water, clothing and equipment for your trip.
  • Be prepared for at least one day more than your planned trip.
  • In case of EMERGENCY, call 911 or Parks Canada Dispatch at 1-877-852-3100, but remember cell phone reception in the backcountry is not reliable.

Water

All backcountry travellers should carry a portable stove for cooking. If you have a campfire, keep it small, do not leave it unattended and be sure it is fully extinguished when you are finished.

Wash dishes well away from any water sources and keep the use of soap to a minimum (even biodegradable soaps are pollutants). When washing dishes, strain the bits of food waste and pack them out. Disperse strained water on the land.

Disposal

When it comes to garbage if you pack it in—pack it out. Littering is unlawful and hazardous to wildlife.

Do not dispose of garbage in pit privies.

Use the pit privies provided. If there are no pit privies, select a spot away from trails, campsites and at least 70 m away from water sources. Dig a hole 12 to 16 cm deep to reach the dark-coloured biologically active soil layer. When filling the hole with soil, do not pack it down. Pack out toilet paper and used feminine hygiene products.

Pets

Dogs or other pets cause stress for wildlife. Dogs, like wolves and coyotes, may be seen as a threat. Off-leash dogs can trigger aggressive behaviour from wildlife such as black bears, moose, and elk. To prevent unsafe situations, it is your responsibility to:

  • Ensure your dog is on a leash and under control at all times.
  • Pick up and dispose of your pet’s waste in a garbage bin.
  • Consider leaving your dog at home if you plan to camp, hike or go into the backcountry.
