Hecla-Grindstone Provincial Park, Manitoba

Lush forest, rugged shoreline, scenic beaches and bountiful wildlife blend within this pristine park land. Venture through the park's many hiking and cross-country ski trails.

Here on the prairie, there's a place where stories of sunken ships and magical islands are told, where the water and fishing is a way of life. It's a place where endless days of outdoor adventure await. This place is called Hecla / Grindstone Provincial Park, and it is a series of islands between the east and west shores of Lake Winnipeg. With names like Black Island and Drumming Point, this park is cloaked in mystery from the ways of the Anishinabe (Ojibwe) medicine men.

Hecla Island was named after one of the most famous landmarks in Iceland, the volcano Mount Hekla. Today, Hecla Island is the hub of activity in this year-round natural playground. Set your sites on seeing a spectrum of birds and wildlife. Play on the beaches, walk the limestone cobbled shores. Listen to the waves as you tee up for your next shot on Gull Harbour's superb 18-hole course. Follow the beacon of the Hecla lighthouse to the safe and well-serviced moorage of Gull Harbour. Here it's easy to be busy, but even easier to relax. Cross over the causeway and leave the mainland behind.



  • Hecla fish station
  • Wildlife viewing tower

You can also explore the park on its hiking trails or you can rent a bike or kayakes at Gull Harbour.
