I wouldn't call this a "must-see", but we make the drive from Winnipeg every once in a while. My 3 year old son LOVES watching the pelicans, along with all the people catching big fish. Friendly people out there, just laid back on the dock.

It's a good place to catch a assortment of fish. There has been a lot done the past few years in regards to cleaning up the river banks. Noticeable improvement on the amount of garbage that has been picked up. There is also garbage cans...More
