For residents and those travelling highways 45 and 16, the Rossburn area provides a variety of recreational and tourism activities. The town is located near the edge of Riding Mountain National Park in the Parkland Region of Manitoba. The community is 155 kilometres Northwest of Brandon and 300 kilometres from Winnipeg, the Provincial Capital.
Mixed farming and ranching are the predominant economic activities in the region. Cereal grains are widely grown, with some producers growing oilseeds like flax and canola. The rolling hills and treed areas provide an ideal area for beef production, and cattle in the area outnumber the residents.
Deep Lake, Arrow Lake, Rossman Resort, and the Birdtail Valley all offer fishing, boating, swimming and other water-sports activities. Campgrounds offer a safe and convenient place to stay while visiting, and many offer electrical hook-ups, water, and other amenities.
Forty-five minutes from Rossburn is the Gate to beautiful Riding Mountain National Park, a protected natural wilderness that offers everything from a pampered resort stay in Clear Lake to the ultimate adventure in backcountry hiking and camping.
