Kenbro Park Dam

Brokenhead River

Imagine learning basic whitewater skills as you explore this picturesque river, only 45 minutes from Winnipeg. This little known gem winds through farms, forests, cottages and campgrounds, including Great Woods Park and Campground. You will have a blast on the 15 or so easy rapids.  There are also several long sections of fast water and plenty of slower sections where you can watch for ducks, geese, and deer.
 
Take a rest and swim at the Great Woods suspension bridge and later check out the bald eagle nest. You will go home a more confident paddler, but you won't feel like you have been
to boot camp!
