Duck Mountain Provincial Park and Forest

Community: Russell


Beautifully clear, spring-fed lakes have made “The Ducks” a popular tourist destination for years. Childs Lake, Wellman Lake, Singush Lake and the Blue Lakes are among the most popular. The bottom of East Blue Lake, which descends to 60 m (196 feet) at its deepest, is visible to some 12 to 18 m (40 to 60 feet).

Manitoba’s highest elevation is found at Baldy Mountain, which rises 831.2 m (2,727 feet) above sea level, Baldy Mountain is accessible by car. An observation tower, located off PR366, 32 km (20 miles) north of Grandview, offers a scenic view of the surrounding forest of tall spruce. .
Duck Mountain is home to moose, white-tail deer, black bears, foxes, lynx, coyotes and timber wolves. A variety of birds nest in the forests and marshes. A 30 km (19-mile) network of trails provides for exploration of the hilly terrain and forests of the park by hikers in summer and snowmobilers and cross-country skiers in winter.

Campgrounds and facilities exist at all of the major lakes in the park.
