We have been recycling this farm for years. It was owned previously by a couple who worked for a nursery and they planted many varieties of trees. Later it was part of a Manitoba pilot project for hi-bred poplar so there is a 14 acre poplar forest that was planted on a grid. It is a very unique place. We love it here and hope you do too! Learn more about this land: Enjoy over 40 beautiful acres within the heart of the prairies at Blacknot Farm! Perfect for pitching a tent or parking your RV, camper van, or trailer. A wonderful family-friendly (including pets!) getaway only 20 minutes north of Winnepeg, and 10 minutes from Selkirk, Manitoba. There is outdoor access to restrooms, water, and electricity on the property. With 5 sites to choose from, you can select a very quiet and peaceful spot in the trees or field or choose to be closer to the house and barn with wifi signal, running water and flush toilets. While you’re here, you can go on nature walks, raid the garden, play yard games, enjoy a bonfire, and explore the woods. If interested, ask for a tour of the 3 season party hayloft with antiques, vintage video games, an old pool table, and a zip line. The campsite has firewood for campfires, a picnic table to enjoy your meals, and potable water is available through a tap (both hot and cold water). All sites can be accessed by a traditional car, no off-roading or 4-wheel drive vehicle is needed.  If you’re interested in exploring the area,  Selkirk, Manitoba has plenty of fishing and a marine museum.  We are also a short drive to Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site. Oak Hammock Marsh Wildlife Management Area is a 17-minute drive. One of North America’s birding hotspots and a great destination for people of all ages! This 36km2 Wildlife Management Area features a restored prairie marsh, aspen-oak bluff, waterfowl lure crops, artesian springs, some of Manitoba’s last remaining patches of tall-grass prairie and 30 kilometres of trails for you to explore. Gimli or New Iceland is about a 30-minute drive north and is a great summer or winter destination. Rich in history, art, culture and outdoor discovery it has many restaurants, lovely beaches and the New Iceland Heritage Museum. In the spirit of truth and reconciliation we acknowledge that Blacknot Farm is in the heart of Treaty One territory the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Cree, and Dakota peoples and the Homelands of the Metis Nation. We respect the treaties made on this land and acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past and present. We stand committed to building positive relationships rooted in a spirit of genuine reconciliation as we move forward. I look forward to hosting you!

Great place to camp!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Cindy’s farm. It was very quiet and private when we were there. She was very pleasant and answered all questions we had. Overall 10/10!!!

The campsite worked well for our pop up camper. Cindy was very helpful and accommodating. Electricity was via an extension cord (either 14 or 16 gauge), so if you need a lot of power it may not work for you; we never ran our a/c but it powered our electric heater and fridge just fine. The location is right off a busy highway, and I think you’d hear it no matter which site you’re staying at. Washroom was fine, there’s no shower; we used one of those bagged camp showers and filled it with hot water from the sink. Otherwise it was very private, only saw Cindy during check in and heard her dogs the first morning (received an unnecessary apology for a little barking), they were quiet the rest of our stay. It’s a nice location centrally located to explore both Winnipeg and all of the small towns up Lake Winnipeg and Hecla Island (be sure to get your provincial park pass ahead of time).

Gorgeous Instagrammable retreat
Cindy was a wonderful host who took my niece on a tour of her beautiful grounds. We visited her Etsy store, saw where she hosts weddings, took a gazillion photos of the scenic and unique spots all over the farmland, picked a bouquet of flowers on the outskirts of the property, and had such a lovely glamping experience with our trailer hooked up to her electricity and with a view through the foliage from the trailer to the swing set my niece was perpetually on at the front of the barn. The walks were all cleanly mowed and we walked our puppy around without fear of ticks…we had the entire site to ourselves which was amazing. She brought us lots of fresh fire wood so we happily hosted Two different couple friends who drove up from the city to hang with us, and my sister who camped overnight in a tent with her kids. It felt serene, safe, and comfortable with lush bathrooms and wifi close to the farm house. Her dogs are friendly but ours has no recall and we were out at the beach and Gimli so didn’t have the dogs play. Matlock beach is only 12 min away and quiet, good for families. We’d also recommend the restaurant in the golf course that’s 10 min away and was a nice treat. If you’re looking for a convenient, comfortable, beautiful spot in nature free of ticks and mud, with a gazillion Instagrammable spots, I can’t recommend Blacknot Farm more!

A nice big property with lots of grass land for setting up camp! Lots of fire pits to setup at your camp and the trees give you some good privacy. Was a great stay!

We had a great stay at Blacknot Farm. We were welcomed by Cindy, who showed us around and let us pick where we wanted to camp. The spot back in the poplars was the best. Very nice, and quite private as well.
