Nutimik Lake, Manitoba

Nutimik Lake, Manitoba

A two-hour drive from Manitoba's capital Winnipeg, is  Nutimik Lake, one of the many lakes in the southeast of the Province and part of the Canadian Shield. The area surrounding the lake is made up of various rivers, creeks, boreal forests, large rock ridges, and of course plenty of campsites.

Nutimik Lodge is one such spot, just a short walk from the Whiteshell Natural History Museum, it boasts winterized cabins with jacuzzis and wood panelled interiors as well as numerous individual sites for trailer or tent camping along the border of the lake.

As far as places to eat in the area when you don't feel like cooking on your camp stove, the Dunlop's Tourist Hotel in Seven Sisters has been serving up homemade comfort food for three generations. The restaurant itself is a time capsule to a 1970s' truck-stop with a pool table, shuffle board, and juke box.  Don't let the long outdated decor fool you though, the fried chicken, mash potatoes, gravy and made-from-scratch pierogies are all delicious and are just the thing to put you in a food coma.

If you're an early riser, watching the smog lifting off of the lake during sunrise is the perfect view while you sip your morning beverage of choice. Locals and regulars a-like also rumour this to be one of the best times to cast your fishing line if you're hoping to fry up the day's catch for dinner.

Nutimik Lodge is open all year long, allowing for summers spent boating,  swimming, or playing volley ball at the sandy beach. In the winter months, take a walk through snow covered birch trees, ride a snowmobile along the trails winding around the lake or cuddle up by the fireplace in your cabin with a mug of hot cocoa.
