Spruce Woods Provincial Park

Less than a 20-minute drive south of Carberry is the unique spirit sands of Spruce woods provincial park.

Known for the plants and animals unlikely found elsewhere in Manitoba, like the pincushion cactus and hognose snake. From the blowing hills of the sand dunes to the lush forest of green spruce trees in minutes, all brought to life by the coolness of the springs pond.

Lots of hiking for all experience levels in the summer, spring, and fall, with lots of snowmobile and cross-country skiing trails in the winter. So, come over and spend the night in the campground under the clear country sky.

Home Town of Ernest Thompson Seton, Pioneer of Boy Scouts

Ernest Thompson Seton was an author, wildlife artist, founder of the Woodcraft Indians in 1902 (renamed Woodcraft League of America) and one of the founding pioneers of the Boy Scouts of America in 1910.

He was born in England in 1860. Between 1882-1892, he spent much of his time in the Carberry and North Cypress area. He often referred to this time as the “Golden Years” which inspired many of his works.

In 1885, he was given a contract to do 1,000 mammal drawings for the Century Dictionary. In 1898 Seton published his first book of animal stories, Wild Animals I Have Known. He became successful as a writer, artist and naturalist.

Seton became the president of the committee that founded the Boy Scouts of America and was it’s first (and only) Chief Scout. Seton wrote the Boy Scout Handbook.

Camp Hughes

Camp Hughes was a Canadian military training camp made to prepare soldiers for World War 1.

Used all the way back in 1909, it is now decommissioned but still guarded by national defence due to CFB Shilo being only a kilometre away.

In 2011 it was honoured as a National Historic Site, as it is now one of the only WW1 era trenches still remaining in the world. The site hosts more information about its slight use in WW2 and the Cold War, as well as the historic cemetery located on-site.
