We spent two nights in yurt #3. It was super spacious, great view of the lake, had some good privacy. First off this was my first time staying in a yurt and I was pleasantly surprised. This place is located just over an hour north of Winnipeg and 5 minutes north of Gimli. The yurts had a decent amount of privacy, had a ramp, bench for cooking on under a covered patio, picnic table and great fire pit. Wood was supplied which is fantastic, there was some there when we arrived under a little wood shelter and then upon exploring we found where the wood pile was to grab more. There was a bunk bed with a single upper bed and double bottom bed and a futon. There was a great skylight you could open for more ventilation and a fan provided as well as a heater if needed. There was some shelves, a mirror, table and chairs, coat rack and an armoire.

We had a great time and will be back for sure. The sound of the water and waves made you feel like you were at the ocean in the middle of the prairies. Highly recommend this place. If you want a yurt with tons of privacy I would choose number 8 or 7, seems like they had private yards too. Here is our order choice, 8,7,6,3 or 2.

Spent a week at Yurt 2 with my wife. As per always had an amazing time we love the Yurts! We had a great quiet week, we will definitely be back next summer. In the past there was fire wood supplied not anymore but you can purchase bundles in the park $10 per bag. Thanks camp Morton always a pleasure!

Camp Morton deserves to be better known. If you want a peaceful, fun, holiday in beautiful surroundings, then this is the place to go. It is located just north of the fairly large town of Gimli, Manitoba. This means that you can easily get supplies if you need them (just a short drive). Yet, when you are in Camp Morton, you feel as though you are alone with the lake and the forest. Watching the moon rise over the lake in the summer is an exquisitely beautiful experience. There are different options for accommodation here. You can stay in a yurt (round buildings facing the lake; perfect for couples, but with no bathroom), or in a log cabin (small or large) which have running water and a bathroom. Camp Morton is a government-run campground, and - as such - it is not a luxury destination. Showers are in a separate building and the renovations seem to go pretty slowly. However, I have had some really wonderful family holidays here. I also like the entrance to the campground. The antiquated buildings give it a slight European feel - but the fresh air, the green forest, and the serenity is a wonderful example of what Canada has to offer. Manitoba may not have mountains, but it has much to offer in natural beauty. Camp Morton has character, is easy to get to, is reasonably priced, and worth visiting.

We found the yurt to be just as expected. Some things to know - the wagons are not there anymore. We were told that people had been stealing them, so they are not replacing. Also, there is no free firewood since covid. The beach is nice, but a lot of large rocks, so swimming is more challenging, you need to go out a long way, navigating rocks, before you can swim.

The bugs were pretty intense at times, lots of flies and in the evening, the spiders launched down from the yurt overhand, freaking us out just a bit. There were spider egg sacs along the top of the roof, just check for those, maybe sweep a bit up there before you sit on the deck.

The futon bed is not easy to fold down, maybe it's not working well, but it takes a very strong person to put it both up and down.

Lastly, there was a LOT of mowing going on at the camp - one day the ride on mower went for about three hours I'm guessing. There are a lot of grounds that need maintenance, but it went on several days, several hours at a time and it could be pretty loud.

Not sure we would return... It is a beautiful place, just not as relaxing as we were looking for.

We didn’t expected too much but what we saw was a huge disappointment.
If you still want to visit here so here some tips:
If you want to be close to a playground choose cabins 9a or 9b.
Don’t need to bring a firewood, the park will supply it.

The Yurt has everything you could ask for: it is clean, has plenty of room, and best of all lots of privacy. They've thought of everything at Camp Morton: carts are provided to carry your gear to the Yurt from the parking area a short distance away. Free firewood is provided, fire pit with grill and cooktop, fan, heater and the amazing deck with cooking area. Ample power and lighting in and outside the yurt. The showers and washroom located nearby are clean and free to use for campers. There are also clean outhouse facilities and treated water taps near the yurts. The park has beautiful grounds, beach and group use areas. We stayed in Yurt 1, which has a small path leading to a group use area and is nearest the showers. Yurts 6, 7, and 8 have spacious yards with freshly installed lattice and planted vines to allow for even more privacy. You can't beat the amazing view right from the deck allowing for a gorgeous view of the sunrise.

Took my best friends on a camping trip and we are all pleasantly surprised. The YURTS were clean, well maintained and pretty much made for an effortless camping trip. The half dozen at Camp Morton all face the water and are fine little self contained units highly recommended for 2 or 3 friends, small family or a couple. A few units are wheelchair accessible too. Free firewood supplied. Camp staff are super duper and the facilitates are what you would expect from a provincial camp ground. Nothing much to see or do in the park itself. The 'ruins' of the old bible camp they advertise might be a curiosity for children for about 5 minutes but otherwise... you are your own entertainment. Gimli very close by.. you could in fact eat your 3 meals in town without much inconvenience at all. Great place to RELAX and enjoy the QUIET.

We return here annually and find the park to be family friendly, quiet and peaceful. The cabins feel quite private, one bedroom ones are back to back duplexes and two bedrooms stand alone with bush in between neighbors. They have all you need (except showers) inside, you need to bring your own pots and pans, dishes, food, towels and bedding. I recommend a mattress topper too as the beds are very hard. The shower house is clean, costs 1.00 for 3 minutes. The grounds are well kept and nice for walking or biking around. The beach area is not accessible for those with mobility trouble as there is a climb down a hill or steps, water is fine for swimming and beach is sandy but entry into the water is very rocky-I would suggest visitors bring water shoes for comfort.

We stayed in cabin 8A. It faced the roads leading to other cabins, but they are so spaced apart you really felt private. The cabin was a great size for a family of four or slightly more. Bed was a little hard but if you can't sleep on that bring a foam for on top. Apartment size fridge, stove and a microwave. Nice little wooden table, with a large porch outside the door with a large picnic table on it. Lots of space in the yard to play, or put up a dining tent. Firewood was provided, located in the middle of the cabin area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Access to the pay showers pretty much any time of the day or night. Plenty of shade or sun in front of the cabins depending on your preference. Lots of plug ins in the cabin for those that can't leave the tech behind. The water was good, but if you don't want to hurt your feet, bring water shoes. Only a few minute drive to Gimli, where you can go swim at a nicer beach that has all different kinds of rentals and if you want a break from campfire hotdogs, it has some nice restaurants. We had pizza from a place called Brennivins Pizza Hus. I would definitely go again.

The 2016 Cabin Reservation starts March 21st. Details can be found on their website.If you are reserving online, you can only reserve 3 cabins. Each person that you are reserving for has to have a Parks Account and you have to know their email address associated with it. If you need many cabins for a reunion you may be better off calling them. Hope this was helpful!

"Yurts 1, 2 and 3 are closer together, which would be great if a family or group of friends want to book together. They are also closer to the kids play area and showers. Yurts 6, 7, and 8 have ample shaded yards, which are great for pets or kids. Yurts 4 and 5 are going to be added in the near future."
