Canadian Prairies National Parks

When we think of the Canadian Prairies we think of flat fields of wheat swaying in the breeze. There is actually so much more to this area that we can miss if we do not take the time to stop and look. Saskatchewan and Manitoba are home to some of the largest deposits of dinosaur bones, wildlife and rare vegetation in Canada. Rent an RV and take a trip through the Canadian Prairies.

Grasslands National Park is located in south western Saskatchewan right on the US boarder. This National Park is a great place for kids of all ages. The badlands in the east block of the park are home to the richest source of dinosaur fossils in Canada. There are many events throughout the year that will allow you to accompany paleontologists to a real dig site as you scour the landscape for bones. A great way to spend the day is to take your rental RV on the Ecotour Scenic Drive. This drive is about an 80 km round trip, with lots of stops for hiking and stops with information panels that talk about the stunning landscape, rich history and active conservation of the area. Keep your eyes open as there is so much wildlife to be seen, such as bison, prairie dogs, lizards and ferrets.

Prince Albert National Park is located 450 km north of Regina and covers one million acres of land and encompasses 1500 lakes and streams. This year round destination offers hiking, boating, swimming, and golf in the summer and in the winter you can cross country ski, ice skate and snow shoe. The northern section of the park is home to moose, wolves and caribou while white elk, deer and badgers inhabit the southern part of the park. There is even a herd of bison that roam the south western corner of the park feeding off of the fescue grass in this area. Beaver Glen and Red Deer campgrounds are close to the city of Waskesui, have full hook ups for your rental RV and are clean and well kept.

Wapusk National park is located 1400 kilometres north of Winnipeg and is only accessible by plane or VIA Rail train, so it is not a trip you will take in your RV rental but this astonishing park is still worth mentioning. This park lies at the transition from boreal forest to the arctic tundra and protects one of the worlds largest polar bear maternity denning areas. Along with polar bears be on the watch for arctic foxes, arctic hares, wolves, caribou and wolverines.

Onanole RV Resort has great reviews and is located right in the park with easy access to Clear Lake. Riding Mountain National Park and Clear Lake are a year round RV camping destination.

Day 1:

Leaving from Vancouver take Highway 1 W to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. Take the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale ferry. The ferry ride is approximately 40 minutes long and you only pay one way.

You may get the chance to see some incredible wildlife such as seals, otters, or even whales.

Arriving on the Sunshine Coast, follow the Sunshine Coast Highway for approximately twenty minutes until you arrive in Roberts Creek. Here make a stop at Roberts Creek Beach. You will see a giant mandala painted on the cement. Each year the locals paint over the old mandala and everyone gets to fill in their own section. This small beach has an incredible white sand that reaches as far as the tide goes out. Cool off in some of the clearest waters in B.C. then get back in your RV and continuing driving towards Davis Bay for lunch.

Across from the pier in Davis Bay is the Wobbly Canoe, a restaurant with a first class view of the bay from any table. Refuel with locally sourced food at this local favourite.

After lunch continue on to Bayside Campground and RV Park. Settle in for the rest of the day and enjoy the beach volleyball court, nearby hiking trails, a game of horseshoes, or explore the bay with a kayak or paddleboard rental.

Day 2:

After packing up camp head to Wheatberries Bakery to grab a quick breakfast or lunch such as muffins, cinnamon buns, soap, sandwiches, or burritos.

Continue along the Sunshine Coast Highway for approximately 50 minutes until you see a sign for Dan Bosch Park. This is the parking lot for Ruby Lake which is another beautiful spot for a relaxing swim. Be sure to bring floaties, kayaks, or paddle boards because this is a large lake with lots of islands to explore.

From Ruby Lake it is just a short drive to the Earls Cove ferry terminal. The ferry is free going to Saltery Bay and takes about 50 minutes. Be sure to take in the stunning views as you sail through Jarvis Inlet.

Upon arrival continue along the Sunshine Coast Highway until you get to Powell River. Be sure to fill up on gas and any essentials before you leave because there is no gas station on Texada Island. There is a small grocery store and a convenience store if you need to resupply while you are on the island but don’t expect too much.

Proceed to the last ferry from Powell River to Texada Island (Westview to Blubber Bay). The crossing time is 35-40 minutes and you will pay the ferry fee in this direction. Head to Shelter Point Regional Park Campground to set up camp. This spacious campground has both beachfront sites and forested sites, either way you can’t go wrong. Enjoy the sunset over the beautiful coast line and see seals, oysters, and crabs. Flush toilets, showers, and a small concession are available here.

Day 3/4:

Spend your time on the island enjoying the relaxed pace of the locals. Enjoy nature by beach combing, taking a swim in the ocean, or walking through coastal old growth forest. The Dr. Kay Garner Nature Trail is located at the intersection of Gillies Bay Rd. and Shelter Point Rd.

If you are lucky enough to be there on a Sunday then stop by the local farmers market located at the Gillies Bay Ball Park from 12-2:30. You will find canned goods such as salsas and jams, local art, fresh produce, and friendly faces.

Explore the islands history and learn about the early 1800’s pioneer settlements at the Texada Heritage Society Museum in Blubber Bay.

Try to time your stay for the Texada Blues & Roots Festival that celebrates local performers from within 100 km. Or possibly go to the much larger Diversity Festival where a diverse audience of all ages are drawn together at the Shingle Beach Forest Service Site to listen to artists, composers, and bands from all over the continent.

If you want to enjoy more of the local art then go on the Texada Island Studio Tour. The artists work with everything from stain glass, jewellery, sculptures, photography, and more. Artists will be there to answer any questions about their work and share their passions.

Day 5:

Pack up camp and head back to the ferry to Powell River (Blubber Bay-Westview). Drive to Saltery Bay and take the next ferry to Earls Cove (you will pay the ferry fee travelling in this direction). Continue back along the Sunshine Coast Highway stopping at any point to enjoy one of the inviting lakes along the way.

Arrive back in Roberts Creek for dinner time and grab a table at the Gumboot Restaurant. Tables are available both inside and outside where there is a grassy area for children to play. Service is fast and friendly and the BCCLT burger and the Thai noodle salad are not to be missed.
