Desert? Ummm. I don't know. Lots of sand hill but it's a trek to get to the dunes and the trails could use benches to sit and just enjoy the outdoors. The public washrooms were smelly, dirty and unserviced. I have been to deserts around the world and this is just a sandy location. Spend the day, and take in some of the trails....bring water and insect spray. The highway crosses through the park and you can get to trails on either side of the highway.

Loved the hike through the desert. Deep, soft sand, a shady oasis, lots of tracks of snakes and wildlife and incredible views. It was a great experience, and a challenging hike for us. In the soft sand and up and down dunes, probably one of the more challenging hikes we've tried. Kids had fun running up and jumping down the dunes. Some of the signage could be more helpful... attempts to incorporate aboriginal perspectives sometimes come at the expense of information and understanding. Would highly recommend.

Great camping experience. Very clean and modern facilities, pay showers, even hot water for dishwashing. The beach was very clean and the water warm without nasty leaches or anything like that. Kayaked the Kiche Manitou Lake, Assiniboine River is very very very low at the moment. Racoons are present, so make sure you are not leaving food or trash behind. Isputinaw Trail is great for families with young kids. No ticks, no bears, but I'm sure they are around, check out the gift shop: I found a book I've been looking for a while the Prairie Pathfinders and many souvenirs. Pine Fort IV has store, food service, canoe and paddle rental... You will have fun in here!

Spirit Sands and Devil's Punch Bowl. Good winter hike. Quite scenic. Absolutely enjoyed every turn you could see a change of scenery. Shelters and bathrooms available on the trail. Will definetly come back for camping and more hiking.

We only went to the Spirit Sands and Marshs Lake in the park. We toured Spirit Sands with the Covered Wagon Outfitters. Great outing where you can enjoy the ride and get to the highlights of Spirit Sands quickly and be shaded while doing it. Pets are allowed on the ride and your dog will enjoy the park and also the nearby Marshs Lake. Marshs Lake has a nice trail and a small lake but doesn't offer an experience such as the Spirit Sands. Also stopped off to see Sara the Camel and went down highway 2 after to see a number of roadside attractions.

Our family really enjoyed camping in Yurts in Spruce woods provincal Park. We had adequate room for 5 to sleep. A canopy over a deck for protection. Nice outside space with a picnic table and a fire pit. Enjoyed having a cleaning station outside bathrooms . We went on a covered wagon ride to see the Devils Punch Bowel in Spirit Sands a Manitoba desert which is well worth the trip

Despite raining the entire weekend we were there, my family and the two other families we were Yurting with had a blast. The thing about yurts is no matter how much rain you will stay dry, and they are large enough to still enjoy your time with friends and family. The cover and counter for cooking are awesome for those raining or sunny days.

Lovely bays of 5-10 sites with nearby clean washrooms with 3-minute showers for a loonie (I had time extra :)). Free firewood.

Endless miles of cycling trails just around the oxbow pond (formerly the Assinaboine River) to a 4km more challenging ride to a beautiful lookout of the Assinaboine.

There is a restaurant and store inside a fort with a mini-putt beside it and playground nearby.

Sandy swimming area.

As others have written, this is a great park with a lot to see and do. Coming from the US, we saw plenty of animals not seen in our area. Had lots of walking and bike paths with a great area for the beach and restaurant. Charge was $5 per vehicle.

We escaped city life for 4 nights in a Yurt at Kiche Manitou Campground. We were fortunate to see some Deer near the entrance when we arrived.
Hitting the trails in the area was the goal.
It was cool & cloudy a lot of the time.

Our first hike was just over the bridge by the beach & along the water to the Interpretive Centre - so many birds singing & flying from tree to tree. Beautiful autumn foliage.

We enjoyed a fire while sipping local brews.

We hiked the Isputinaw Trail which was quite breathtaking with viewpoints on top of the mountain. It’s a shorter trail which was perfect with the unpredictable weather.

We ate Olive Garden Pasta in the Woods.
There are sinks to wash dishes by the washroom-so grateful to use these.

We payed for showers - the shower curtains should be cleaned more often.

We stayed in one rainy morning and cuddled while watching a movie.

We drove to and hiked the Steels Ferry Overlook & Spring Ridge Trails. Again, shorter trails which are perfect for unpredictable weather days. Both trails
have majestic viewpoints. Some small wildlife sightings - chipmunk, snake, grouse

The park staff were friendly and helpful with check in and trail maps and information.

Thanks for a wonderful experience Spruce Woods Provincial Park
Until next time
