Things to do in Big Whiteshell Lake

Bannock Point Petroforms is a spiritual place that people visit when they are in Big Whiteshell Lake. This area is sacred, and many are in awe of the rock formations. The stones are displayed in the form of various shapes and different animals. This area was believed to be used for healing and teaching the younger generations. You can trek through the site on your own or sign up for a guided tour.

If you love to explore and canoe, you can combine them as you take a journey through the granite tunnels. The fantastic scenery on the other side of the tunnels will blow you away. This is a fun way to check out new areas around Big Whiteshell Lake.


Nite Hawk Café is a favourite in this area. The same family has owned it for more than 30 years. The selection of burgers, sides, and complete meals is too good to pass up. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Otter Falls is another excellent choice, and many guests love the screened enclosure patio. They can take in the view and enjoy the fresh air while they dine. They have some of the best cinnamon rolls you will ever taste!

Manitoba real estate rules prevents me from listing ALL cabins for sale. Many cabins are sold privately and through private real estate brokers. I can find you cabins on the MLS, from private brokers and I monitor private sellers. There aren’t a lot of cabins that go for sale and when they do, they go fast.  Enter your contact information below and I can send you cabin information the day they hit the market.
