“People and Nature at Their Finest”
The RM of Grahamdale welcomes you to the Northwest Interlake in all our seasons.
Nestled along the Northeast shore of Lake Manitoba, the area provides various experiences. Enjoy the beauty of nature with the wonderful solitude of its woods and meadows, go camping, boating, or swimming. Lake Manitoba’s sparkling waters boast some of the best fishing in the Interlake. For land lovers there are backcountry roads to explore and discover.
Springtime steals slowly over the RM of Grahamdale with animals birthing their young, tree buds opening & flowers beginning to bloom. A mantle of green creeps slowly over the ground & trees as the migratory birds return to the area for the summer.
Summer steals upon the area with swimming, fishing & boating as great activities for residents or visitors. Enjoy some time in the sun, have a picnic or fish for your lunch.
The beauty of fall is seen in the red, yellow and gold leaves against the dark green background of the White Spruce; the golden fields of grain & the bales dotting the meadows. The skies dotted with V-shaped formations of Canada Geese on their annual migration; the night stillness broken by the call of waterfowl on their way to their winter home.
Covered in a blanket of snow, the RM of Grahamdale offers spectacular winter scenery. Clean, crystal-clear snowdrifts sparkling in the sunlight, or etched in blue shadows under the light of a brilliant moon. Velvet wintry nights with the fiery undulations of the northern lights or trees covered with a mantle of hoarfrost, sparkling like diamonds in the morning sun. Discover this beauty while cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, sleigh riding, snowshoeing, curling, skating and various other winter activities.
Unique attractions in the area:
Historic Sites - Hilbre School, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Buztynski Log House, St. Helen’s Anglican Church.
Largest Meteorite in Western Canada - Though very few people know, the residents of the St. Martin and Gypsumville area are living next to (or even on) a terrestrial impact crater. Approximately 220 million years ago an asteroid hit that spot creating a crater approximately 40 km in diameter.
Steep Rock Cliffs - The cliffs of Steep Rock are made of limestone and over thousands of years wave action has moulded them into sheer drops, caves and other unusual geological formations. The rocks are also a habitat for the Crocus. This is one of the most photographed locations in Manitoba.
