Our first trip with the motorhome was last year May and Manitou Beach was where we went. We always wanted to go back to see what it would look like without snow and with green trees 🙂 Well, we checked it out last week and it was even prettier than we expected!! So many (high) trees, so much shade, cosy sites as well as big pull through ones, only the new section in the back is still without trees. And as a bonus they have wifi these days 🙂
On Friday we got there after a big storm and part of the site was flooded. That disappeared pretty fast, even though we still had some rain that day. In the evening we walked to town to have supper at Sam’s Steakhouse at the spa hotel.
Saturday started clouded and a bit chilly, but in the afternoon the sun came out and it was really pleasant. I hiked part of the Nature Trail outside the campground and we just chilled most of the day. In the evening Astrid, Jos and Laurens came to visit us from Wakaw! We barbecued all night and had a great time 8)
On Sunday we had to go home again, but we first went for a drive along Little Manitou Lake and had breakfast at Sam’s. Two thumbs up for a fun weekend (esp with the Molendijks) and a great campground to chill at! 🙂
Well treed sites and campground, we had a full serviced site for $22, a day pass for the Regional Park was $5, washrooms and showers free (outdated, didn’t look too good, but clean), playground, camp kitchens, no store… but wifi! Golf course across the street, it’s 1 km to the village of Manitou Beach (www.watrousmanitou.com) with beaches, spa hotel, pool, coffee shop, diner, fast food, bar, tennis, mini-golf, dancehall and more, 6 km back to Watrous for more amenities.
