Discover Rossburn

“Located within the Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve and only a 15-minutes drive from the most south-western entrance of the Riding Mountain National Park, nature is our focus.

Come enjoy the fishing (including ice-fishing) as Patterson and Tokaryk Lake are world-class fly-fishing trout lakes; other lakes boast walleye, perch and northern pike. Horseback adventures, boat rental, golfing, hunting, camping and guided tours within the Riding Mountain National Park are accessible and you can reach us not only via Highway (16, then 45) but also by hiking or biking the Trans Canada Trail.

Heritage sites are many, come and discover your roots or at least the routes leading to settlement of this area. Enjoy our charming stores and our Community in Bloom winner town site.” – © Travel Manitoba
