Stayed there for new years dec 31/10...
cabins expensive for what you get, asked for new batteries for remotes that were not working never got them.
and charged extra fee for not leaving cabin as is!!!!NOT WORTH THE STAY!!!!!!
As a lark we went to an Open House -- i.e. this cottage is for sale and for two hours on a Sunday afternoon, one could walk through the cottage. This particular cottage was listed for over 1/2 million dollars -- a little beyond our price range. But it was a beautiful cottage - three bedroom house, lovely view, included the boat and boathouse.
There are a number of levels of accommodation at the Whiteshell. They range from daily camping sites to seasonal camping sites to permanent cabins.
Daily camping sites are available at ten different sites within the park. I toured the campgrounds at Nutimik Lake in 2006, but we have stayed at the Caddy Lake campgrounds as well many years past. Campsites in provincial parks are high quality. You get a private area with a picnic table and campfire ring with a modern washroom nearby. Some of the sites have electrical hookup, and some have full hookups. At the Nutimik campground, some of the tent sites have permanent Yerts. Yerts is a brand-name for a one-room wooden cabin. See the second picture.
There is a number of privately-owned accommodations in the Whiteshell. I checked out the cabins at Nutimik Lodge - website: www.nutimik.mb.ca), and drove by the lodge at Pinewoods. This type of accommodation seem quite expensive compared to camping, more that $100 per day.
Seasonal camping sites are available at various sites as well. You rent a seasonal site for a whole summer. Usually there is a lottery to determine which site you get. People who camp in seasonal sites usually have a trailer; many seasonal sites are basic sites with electricity but no plumbing, however the sites share a centrally-located modern washroom. I included the picture of the tent outhouse is at a seasonal site as a lark -- I have only seen that type of tent once.
We stayed with friends that own a cottage at Nutimik Lake. There are hundreds of cottages throughout the Whiteshell, and those who own cottages spend most of their summers at the lake. See the next tip for an example of a cottage.
I have concentrated on Nutimik Lake because that is were we stayed for a few weekends, but there are approximately 12 different areas with daily and seasonal camping and thousands of cottages within Whiteshell Provincial Park. Also Whiteshell is only one of approximately ten such provincial parks - all with similar camping areas.
