The Riding Mountain National Park is located in Manitoba, Canada, on the Manitoba Escarpment.
Additional information can be found at Friends of Riding Mountain.
One of the main reasons to visit the park is the Bison Range. About 40 Bison roam here.
There is some luck involved to find them, the Range is quite large. We were there in 2011 and didn't get a good look at these impressive animals. When we finally returned in Summer 2019, we left early in the morning and got rewarded.
Take some time to visit Wasagaming. You will enjoy the many stores and restaurants.
Don't forget your swim suit, the beach in Wasagaming is very popular.
