Blacknot Farm

6 sites 路 RVs, Tents40 acres 路 Saint Andrews, MB
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鈥檙e 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.聽 If you鈥檙e interested in exploring the area, 聽Selkirk, Manitoba has plenty of fishing and a marine museum.聽 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鈥檚 birding hotspots and a great destination for people of all ages!

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!
