Manning Park Resort has officially resumed operations!

Manning Park Resort has officially resumed operations! The Resort, as well as many of the Provincial campgrounds are ready to welcome guests back, with increased precautions, cleaning and protocols surrounding COVID-19.

The Resort’s accommodations with its newest Premium cabins, lodge rooms, Standard cabins and chalets are open for reservations. Food service is available at the Pinewoods Dining Room and the outdoor patio for dine-in and take-out; as well as the Country Store.

Open for Family Getaways

“We think our guests are going to be really excited to get out and explore their local area this spring and summer,” says General Manager, Vern Schram, “Manning Park Resort offers a great opportunity to get some exercise and fresh air while staying comfortably either in the Resort or camping. Our cabin facilities are perfect for a family getaway, and we have a lot more availability for this summer, as most of our group and wedding reservations have postponed their events into the future.”

To comply with stringent housekeeping processes, some availability in the Resort is altered, and the Loon Lagoon Pool and Last Resort group facility are not open. We are hoping to resume operations in the Bear’s Den July 1.
“We hope that guests will see the increased precautions for COVID-19 in place and feel confident that we’re making our guest and staff safety our priority,” says Schram.

Provincial Park is Open

The trails are open for hiking and mountain biking and the boathouse has opened seven days a week for canoe, kayak and stand-up paddleboard rentals. With over 300km of hiking trails, it’s easy to stay naturally socially distant, while finding space to connect with your family. More trail information can be found at the Visitor Centre which is open weekends in June.

Interpretive programs are scheduled to go ahead as planned, with some minor changes to group size and schedule. These free programs that introduce people of all ages to the flora and fauna in the park, will begin in July.

The EC Manning Provincial campgrounds are starting to open in the park, with Coldspring and Mule Deer campgrounds open for reservations, and for first come, first serve walk-ins. Lightning Lake and the first loop of Hampton campgrounds are scheduled to open later this month. Parts of Hampton will remain closed for the foreseeable future due to an excessive amount of hazard trees.

COVID-19 Precautions

We take our responsibility very seriously to provide a safe environment for you and your family to visit Manning Park, and are taking extra precautions to prevent COVID-19 transmission in every area of our business.

For the Pinewoods Dining Room, guests will be spaced throughout the dining room to allow for appropriate social distancing from other tables. We ask that you only dine with your family group, and groups will be limited to these sizes. Our Pinewoods capacity will be decreased due to these measures, however, we hope to expand our dining areas to include the Cascade Room or Alpine Room for ample space as necessary.

For any contact with guests, we have installed plexiglass barriers or provided appropriate personal protective equipment for our staff. Regular sanitation measures of any touch areas will be in place.

While we will accept all our regular forms of payment, we would encourage as much as possible the use of debit or credit cards to limit the handling of cash. Camping fees will still be payable by cash, with increased precautionary measures.

As always, if you are sick, please refrain from visiting Manning Park and help us keep it a safe place to visit.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Manning Park Resort, and we are confident with our increased measures to keep our staff and guests safe. If you have any questions, or would like more clarification regarding our increased procedures in regards to COVID-19, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
