Falcon Lake (Toniata Beach)

Toniata, Manitoba

Reputedly named for the Metis poet/songwriter Pierre Falcon (1793-1876), Falcon Lake is known for clear, deep water and access to an excellent self-guided interpretive trail along Falcon Creek. Other multi-use trails wind through the parks and are frequented by runners, cyclists, hikers and cross country skiers. The adjacent town offers recreational activities ranging from golf to horseback riding to lawn bowling. On north side of the lake, Toniata Beach campground of Whiteshell Provincial Park features 35 electrically serviced seasonal campsites, parking, shower facilities, modern bathrooms and is wheelchair accessible. The beach is unsupervised and features a boat dock, launch, picnic areas, picnic shelters and water and bathrooms. The flat beach is not shaded, though shade, boardwalks and green spaces surround the sandy area.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
