5 Parks near Souris, Manitoba
Apr 2014 - $27.00
This is a nice municipal park in town run by volunteers with tender loving care. We arrived in early spring before the formal opening in late May but we were welcomed by a volunteer who rushed right over to help us. There was still snow in the campground. There is no charge to camp when the water is off. We got free tap water to fill our tank at the city shop a few blocks at the railway plus there is drinking water available by the jug at a private 24 hour water store next to the town Esso for $3 for 5 gallons. There is a sani dump just outside of the campground. Campground has variable sites, from nice flat and wide to narrow and slanted. Campground is in the bend of a small river/large creek near the mouth of the Souris and is also next to a large lovely park and bird sanctuary. There is a huge outdoor pool with watersides adjacent to the campground (not open during our stay) and several playgrounds for kids in and near the campground. There are many mature trees which meant we could barely navigate with our pick up and 28 RV but we did get into a perfect site backing onto the river. Would be impossible for a big rig. Souris is most famous for it's distinctive swinging bridge and you can easily walk from the campground to the bridge by following the creek. We loved it and we will come again. - Judy Birchland

This park is rebuilding after a devastating flood. It was partially open for full service sites. The pads are level. There's lots of open space. The owners went out of their way to help us. Wi-Fi worked well. - artmartin

This park used to be called Curran Park and there are a number of references to that on the internet. It has large pond size swimming pool which is a major attraction. 60-70% of the sites are in a mature wooded area, the rest are in the open. The roads are mud & gravel with lots of potholes, the sites in the woods have mainly dirt driveways and the ones in the open have gravel. The overall impression is that the place has gone downhill since changing ownership. - JTD2

Stayed 6 days - family reunion. Large boating/swimming lake at campsite. Many seasonal or permanent campers so over nights have limited selection. Mini golf and store/restaurant on site. Overall, a nice park and friendly staff. Would stay again if in area. - Idletime

Office staff was extremely pleasant. The initial physical impression was not positive but once we got our site we were extremely pleased. There are permanent residents here as well and no campfires are permitted.
The campground should do some work on their "curb appeal". - Cathyhew

This was a decent stop for an overnight. The sites were pretty basic, but the big rig sites were plenty long and level, with a gravel base and a fair amount of grass. It looked like just grass at first, and we were worried about being too heavy, but the ground was packed hard and we had no problem. Not sure how I'd feel about it if there was a lot of heavy rain though.
We had 50 amps and full hook ups. The satellite worked. The folks were real friendly.
Navigating to the campground off the TransCanada highway was a little confusing - but there is a new service road to the north of the campground. Much easier turns going that way, and there is only a short stretch of road that is unpaved before entering the campground on the western end. Best to call for directions. - MerBee

This campground is easy off and easy on the Trans Canada. It was open early (returning snowbirds), but it was too cold to have the water on. The park host was wonderful, informative, friendly. She even help us out with some other parks along our route home. Was easy to stay hooked up to the site; it was large enough and then some. Didn't check the Wi-Fi as I had my own. We would surely stay here again. - 990dunlop

We are writing this review to warn those of you who need 50-amp service that it is NOT available at this campground, as previous reviews have stated. And it may be fine for some large rigs, but wasn't appropriate for our 45-ft motorhome. To make matters worse, the ground was soft, and we got stuck while trying to squeeze into our site. All of that would merit an even lower score, but the other campers were terrific - they were extremely helpful and got us out of the mud! If you have a smaller motorhome and don't need 50-amp service, it would probably be a nice place to stay. Admin Note: 50 amp available in 2014. - BigRig45

Park has level, wide, private sites among the trees; some are long, some are medium length. The campground is 3/4 km on a good dirt road from the highway and railway, so there is relatively little noise. $21 for electric/water; $40 for sewer as well. No Wi-Fi yet, although it is planned for 2010 (and won't be free). Cell coverage is marginal (I had a dropped call), and data rates are 1X only (no EVDO yet). There is a pool, miniature golf, kids' play area, horse shoes, etc., plus a huge woods with trails to wander through. (But beware of the ticks -- I came out with several dozen on my pants!) - Neil C.
