Manitoba changes campground reservation process to meet high demand – Winnipeg

The Manitoba government is changing the way campground reservations are made to try to avoid long waits for people booking online or being blocked from finding a spot altogether.

This year, people who wish to reserve a yurt or a chalet will only be able to make two reservations at a time instead of three.

The maximum stay for a yurt or cabin reservation will be seven nights, instead of 14.

In order to prevent the online system from crashing under a deluge of requests, there will be five different opening booking days, instead of three, for different parks and types of accommodation.
