Great place to relax watch the pelicans and the fish jump out of the water. Fantastic spot for fishing, fresh air or even a stroll along the river. Not far from Winnipeg only a 20 minute drive and well worth it. If you are hungry...More

It is only 20 minute drive from the north perimeter of Winnipeg. This is a popular place for fishermen. Because of the dam rushing water attracts all kinds of fish there. Lots of fresh air and the views are beautiful. When we lived in Winnipeg...More

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.

We stopped to look at the dam and were fortunate. To have the lone employee come out and explain everything to us.

Found out my brother's family had learned to fish in the past few years. As we had never gone fishing before, they decided to take us to Lockport with them late one Sun afternoon. From Winnipeg we drove northeast and after a brief detour to...More
