Celebrating Spruce Woods Provincial Park, Canadians’ Favourite Spot to go RVing in Manitoba

(Winnipeg, Manitoba) September 30th, 2010 –Today, Go RVing Canada announced the top spot to go RVing in Manitoba: Spruce Woods Provincial Park. This region was the most voted by Canadians through Go RVing Canada’s recent “Top 100 Spots to RV in Canada” Centennial Contest.

Last July, Go RVing Canada, in partnership with the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) of Canada and the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC), launched the month-long contest in honour of the RV Centennial. This contest, engaging RV enthusiasts across Canada, allowed Canadians to submit their favourite spot to RV in Canada for a chance to win an Apple iPad.

“Spruce Woods Provincial Park is absolutely one of Canadians’ favourite spots to go RVing. People love it for its hiking trails, beaches and beautiful scenery,” said Go RVing Canada Spokesperson Angèle Lapointe. “This contest was a true testament to the RV lifestyle, which visibly remains a popular vacation choice for those who are looking for an affordable vacation that offers freedom, flexibility, and fun.”

“Spruce Woods Park is a unique mixture of natural contrasts and wondrous adventures!” states Chris Tanasichuk, Glenboro Community Development. “It is set apart by its sand dunes shifting on the whim of the wind, an eerie blue-green oasis of spruce trees and a spring-fed pond, riverbank forests and sweet mixed-grass prairies. We are honoured that the park has been selected by Canadians as the best spot to Go RVing in Manitoba!”

The Top 11 spots to RV in Canada, which consists of answers submitted by Canadians from coast to coast, include: Kluane Lake (Yukon), Pacific Rim National Park (British Columbia), Banff National Park (Alberta), Douglas Provincial Park (Saskatchewan), Spruce Woods Provincial Park (Manitoba), Algonquin Park (Ontario), Gaspésie (Québec), Cabot Trail (Nova Scotia), Fundy National Park (New Brunswick), Twin Shores (Darnley, Prince Edward Island), and Gros Morne (Newfoundland and Labrador).The complete list of favourite Canadian RV destinations is available on Go RVing Canada’s website, www.GoRVing.ca.

Betty Brunel from Minnedosa was one of many contest participants who voted for Spruce Woods Provincial Park. “We love RVing to Spruce Woods Provincial Park in Manitoba,” said Brunel. “The park is immaculately groomed, is full of walking trails, is close to the Spirit Sands, has a lovely beach and has beautiful private camping sites!”

2010 marks 100 years since the first mass-produced motorized camper was produced. Several events will be taking place throughout the year across North America and Go RVing Canada is thrilled to take part in the celebrations honouring this important occasion.
