Falls is gorgeous, with a lovely little walk. Campground is barely okay. Washroom was heaved up and at an angle. Surrounded by two generators with no restrictions on running time. Nice little beach.

Partner and I went to wekusko lake March 2-5/19 as the nearby lodge had been topic of article in hooked magazine- good review and apparently lake trout can be caught there . As neither of us had been there before we thought it might be fun to check out for a weekend of ice fishing. The lodge accommodations are very good - clean comfortable beds, potable water in the cabins, full bathrooms and full fridge and stove and well supplied kitchen cupboards along with microwave oven coffee pot and toaster - only thing we didn’t find was coffee filters otherwise everything you might need. The hostess was friendly and helpful - we didn’t meet the host and my partner felt he fell short of what is normally expected of a lodge owner - didn’t meet/greet guests and did not offer any suggestions for optimal fishing locations for the season... We did not do great as far as fishing goes but intend to go try that lake again in summer as the area looks awesome in winter - the nearby falls are beautiful! - and expect it will be even better in summer!

Wonderful camping, fishing, swimming and surroundings at Wekusko Falls Provincial campground. The river has beautiful water falls and Rapids with two different walking bridges enabling you to walk across. One side is for tent camping and the other side has 88 sites, with 3/4 of the sites having electricity. All sites are very nice and most offer privacy. A good idea to reserve your site. Only 10 miles approx into the small picturesque town of Snow Lake, situated on the shores of the lake, where you can buy groceries and gas and browse the few shops available. An interesting mining museum is available for touring as well as a beautiful 9 hole golf course. Also good boating and fishing. We stay at this park every year.

My boyfriend and I visited Wekusko Falls the first weekend of September. We were looking for a place that wouldn't be so busy during September Long weekend and noticed there were not many sites booked here. We drove out from Winnipeg (approx 7 hours) and decided on walk in campsites because we enjoy back country camping and wanted something a little more secluded. Unfortunately, the walk in sites are just a stroll away from the parking lot and the site we stayed on (#3) had a view of the water but also of the highway bridge with traffic. The falls were beautiful, we only explored the one trail that we knew of that was quite short. It was a good trip because we both just wanted to relax and read by the water. However, our adventure sides were somewhat disappointed with the lack of hiking and proximity to the highway. It is great that the campsite provides firewood, however the firepit grill is welded to the pit which hindered getting a good fire going. Overall, it was a great place to relax but we would not make the long trip out again. We felt we could find similar attractions closer to Winnipeg.

We brought our one year old daughter here for a little hike and picnic. Definitely one of the most picturesque hikes in Manitoba. I easily walked the 3 km loop trail wearing her in a carrier. It wasn't too steep/muddy/rocky. There is a small sand beach with a little play structure, a boat launch and many great views.

It's quite a distance from big centres but Wekusko Falls Provincial Park. has become a favourite place for campers and fishermen alike. Camping sites vary from tenting on the east side of the Grass River to several electrically serviced sites on the west side. Two swinging bridges across the Grass River connect the sites. Water is available from centralized water taps and there is a sani-dump on site. Several of the campsites have been enlarged to accommodate larger units but be sure to book early. Some excellent sites in Bay 1 include site numbers 8 and 10 both located closest to the river. It's still a small hike down the bank through the bush but you will not be disappointed. Bay 2 is mostly seasonal lots with pit toilets, with Bay 3 a bit of a mix of seasonal and reserved sites with some electrical sites. bay four is closest to the beach and boat launch but there are no electrical sites here even though it hosts some of the best looking sites in the campground. There is one flush toilet building in Bay 1, a couple of playground areas and a shower building located centrally among the sites. There is a sandy beach about a 10 minute walk from the park office and it is a great place to relax on a hot summer day. All sites have a firepit and the wood is included with the price of your campsite. And yes there are bugs; mosquitoes, blackflies, bulldogs, and horseflies and they do not discriminate who they bite. It's all part of the northern experience.

We weren't sure if the 15 km detour off the highway would be worth it, but our quick leg stretch turned into an hour long exploration. The falls from the highway are not the only ones for viewing in the park. There is a hiking trail with two suspension bridges over the falls. One bridge is low to the water and the other is higher up allowing the mist of the falls to land on your face as you try to take some special pictures. The trail is well marked and offers great views of the Grass river. There are picnic spots with tables and fire pits. Several people were fishing down at the dog swim beach. This beach allows for dog swimming but also provides a rudimentary table for cleaning your fish. There were also outhouses so all needs for a picnic road stop are taken care of. Camping is available but I can't comment on that.

Spent 16 years working here trying to give people a wilderness experience . I never met one person that didn't think it was a great place to visit. I'm now retired .

My boyfriend, his dog and I drove 7 hours from Winnipeg, side-tripped to Little Limestone Lake and camped overnight in Wekusko. We picked the walk-in campground close to the falls because aside from the view, it's better to set up a tent on grass. We liked that firewood is free, there's dog swim area and of course, the view of the falls from the campground won't fail you. It was peaceful but not sure if because we went on a Tuesday night. We caught a 28-inch pickerel while canoeing in Wekusko lake but even just close to the boat launch you would see fish jumping all over. It was a great short stay but worth the long drive!

I decided to check Wekusko falls park after leaving Thompson and it was a good decision. There's some nice small waterfalls on the trails with a real good clean smell in the air to refresh your soul. There is a bridge over the falls that makes for a nice photo or two. I like the serenity you feel when coming here.
