Camping
During the spring, summer or fall, camping gives visitors more time to explore and experience the park. Facilities range from fully-serviced sites which are ideal for recreation vehicles, to primitive campsites with special areas designated for group tenting.

The campground is open from the beginning of May to the middle of October, and is located along South Drive. There are plenty of sites to choose from. The campground has 290 unserviced sites, 104 electrically-serviced sites and 25 fully-serviced sites. Most of these sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis, while others can be reserved through the Parks Reservation Service.
Situated near a beach, the campground offers showers, a paved bicycle trail, modern washrooms that are wheelchair accessible, a trailer sanitation station, drinking water, playgrounds, public telephones and an amphitheatre. The campground store and adjacent launderette are open from spring to fall. At the store you can purchase convenience items, firewood and souvenir hats or t-shirts. Hours of operation are posted at the store.

Group camping is available by reservation in two group use areas. Group Use 1 is located along North Drive and is open from May to September. Fifteen spacious fully-serviced sites are available for tenting or picnics for groups of over 50 people.

Group Use 2 is near the east park entrance with seven large unserviced sites for group tenting, picnics and winter camping. For further information or to place a booking, call the Parks Reservation Service.

Explore the 30-km (18.6-mi.) cross-country ski/hiking/horseback riding trail system. Groomed for skiing in the winter and marked for hiking and riding in the summer, this system of trails criss-crosses Birds Hill's backcountry. The six trails vary from 4 to 14 km (2.5 to 8.8 mi.) in length and are designed for novice to intermediate skiers. Shelters with wood stoves and firewood have been provided along several of the trails. Trailheads are at the riding stable restaurant and at the Chickadee Trail parking lot.

Explore Birds Hill on horseback. Several trails in the northern part of the park are accessible from the riding stable. Trail rides leave on the hour all summer long. Pony rides for young adventurers, hay rides for large groups, breakfast or steak rides and winter sleigh rides are also available. For further information, call the riding stable at 204-222-1137. Restaurant services are provided adjacent to the stable. The 16-km (10-mi.) Bridal Path can be used throughout the year for horseback riding and horse-drawn vehicle driving.

Watch horse activities such as polo, jumping, driving and cutting which are held spring to fall, at the Manitoba Horse Council's Equestrian Centre, near the riding stable. Jumping events are also held at the cross-country equestrian course in the southeast corner of the park.
