| Beautiful.. BUT ... some concerns .goat road Hwy 6

By user-6490655... on 2019-08-09.

Paint Lake Provincial Park (30 min south of Thompson about as far north as you can drive [on pavement anyway] in Manitoba. It s a long way from WPG, one 8 hr drive or split into 2 manageable shorter days. Provincial Park employees were OK, easy check-in. Helpful with local information. Site was long enough to stay connected if you want to BUT if your staying for a while there is room to park your TV/TOAD fishing boat on the site. Site was slightly unlevel.... no huge deal. Two risers on one side and nose lowered near the ground, some sites(see pic s) are wildly unlevel mostly front to back a few side to side a couple both. Power (E only site) was OK just. 108-130 volts / 30 amp. (using ½ that). Popped the breaker, local reset staff warn IF CG wide power goes out after hours there will no one there to reset until following day ..... I m sure they are trying to impress people to lower usage (older CG older infrastructure) There are modern toilets and showers; there is a basic playground for the kids. Water access to the beach is convenient. We did not go in the water, dog beach is terrible. Overall impression (as wife said) OK, old CG not upgraded in years, looks like many (longer term resident / seasonal tenants). We left early (10 day booking) as weekends are party time and quiet time does not seem to be enforced [no happy I like it quiet]. FOLLOWING IS ONLYA REVIEW OF CLOSEST CITY We made several trips (1/2 hr) into Thompson .... not a place I would recommend, appears poor, lots of drunks / druggies walking / laying about. The roads are terrible even by terrible standards . Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, are getto . There is a (newer) Safeway and lots of fast food stops. I reality my BIGGEST concerns with this CG is the horrible Hwy 6 (one way in and one way out no alternate route), looks like the Gov is trying to improve it but go slow (100 kph zone I was going 80 90 kph with huge slowdowns at marked (red flag) heaves (20 kph). Lots of construction. No sorry 1 trip is enough.
