Watrous and Manitou Beach
RVers are passionate about Watrous and Manitou Beach, two small neighbouring communities that make for one spectacular getaway. Little Manitou Lake is unique to North America due to its high mineral content, which has led people to seek healing by soaking in its waters. There is a spa in town with a heated mineral pool, or you can go to the beach and soak your worries away. In the evening, people flock to Danceland in Watrous, for an evening of music, dance and historical interest.

The city of Prince Albert has a host of activities going on at any given time, so there will be something to see no matter what time of year you visit. The EA Rawlinson Centre for the Arts offers dance, theatre and musical performances if you’re looking for a night of entertainment. By day, you can peruse the Prince Albert Arts Centre, or one of the four museums operated by the Prince Albert Historical Society.

Camping is available near this site.
