“Rustic campground with lakefront sites, no wifi”
Reviewed Oct 13, 2017
Located inside Riding Mountain National Park, Lake Audy campground is located about 40 km away from the main campground Wasagaming and about 30 km of that is on gravel roads. However, the trip is well worth it: a long row of spacious, grassy campsites line the bluff directly overlooking Lake Audy. The sites are quite open to sunshine which is perfect if you have solar panels: there are no electric sites at Lake Audy.
Self-registration is straightforward and you can pay by credit card: $15.70 per night.
The campground is equipped with pit toilets and fresh water supply, though the water was already shut off during our stay in early October. The dump station thankfully remained open. The campground also offers a boat launch and free firewood with raised metal fireplaces at each site.
We could not access any reliable cell service here even with our booster. Full cell service was available about 8 kms south of the campground on 354, a block east of Lake Audy Road.
At the north end of the campground some trails lead north allowing for some dog friendly hiking and exploring with a lookout over Lake Audy. We saw lots of Magpies plus a sapsucker, chickadees and bluejays.
Just a one minute drive from the campground is the bison range with the access road running right through it over Texas gates to keep the bison inside. You can drive through the large enclosure for the potential for a close encounter with the bison and they even have a viewing platform with some interpretive info.
Riding Mountain National Park’s East Gate entrance is itself a National Historic Site. The impressive gate structure was built through the federal government’s depression era Unemployment Relief Act which provided funding to create employment in the 1930s.
