Within minutes of the town Roblin are some of Manitoba’s most spectacular parks. To the north is Duck Mountain Provincial Park, known for its clear, spring-fed lakes and abundant wildlife, including moose, white-tailed deer, black bears, foxes, lynx, coyotes and timber wolves. Just minutes south is Asessippi Provincial Park on man-made Lake of the Prairies, one of Manitoba’s best walleye fisheries.
The area is rich in history: The Keystone Pioneer Museum showcases the history of the region through period buildings and furnishings, including the restored Elaschuk House, a pioneer log cabin and the Makaroff United Church. Other attractions include the Inglis Elevators National Historic Site, the last remaining row of five standard plan grain elevators in Canada, as well as Frank Skinner Arboretum Trail.
There are always plenty of activities for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy, such as the Roblin Leisure Aquatic Centre with its junior Olympic-sized swimming pool, wading pool, spray fountains, 112-foot water slide and 10-person hot tub. Visitors might want to play a round of golf at the scenic 9-hole Roblin Golf & Country Club or hike, mountain bike or horseback ride on the Crocus Trail, part of the Canada-wide Trans-Canada Trail system which passes through the area.
The Roblin area, with its abundance of small streams, rivers and lakes, is recognized as one of the world’s best areas for fly-fishing. Catches of brown and rainbow trout measuring up to 30 inches are not uncommon. Goose Lake, located within Roblin, is stocked with Rainbow and Brown Trout. The 67-kilometre long Lake of the Prairies is ideal for fishing, boating and wildlife viewing.
The many accommodation options in the area include bed & breakfasts, guest houses, scenic resorts and cabins, and motel rooms. Camping is possible at the Roblin Kin Park and Campground (at Goose Lake) and at nearby provincial parks and numerous privately-run campgrounds and resorts.
