The best stay was at the little town of Ethelbert, MB. I went to the town office to ask where the campground was. The town foreman was there having coffee. He told me to just park in the parking lot at the rink and even offered to get me hooked up to 110!! I plan on going back there this Fall to finish waymarking graveyards and to study a bit of local history.
hey you're talking about my 'hood! Lol. Next time you are on your way to Ethelbert you should plan to stop one night at Russell, MB. They have a FREE campground right in town, complete with electric. Water and dump station are available at the Co-op gas bar next door. We love stopping there as you can do a walking tour of the entire town from there and it is a beautiful little place. If you continue up Hwy 83 you will find that Roblin has a nice little spot on Goose Lake where you have 30A service for only $10/night; and Dauphin now has full service sites in its town campground (which is a beautiful park).

Spent only our 2nd "dry camp" night in a church parking lot in a tiny town on our route. I'd called a few days before and the lady answering the phone checked with the priest and got the okay. Saw an outlet on the side of a building on the grounds and parked next to it. Had power and left the church a 20 the next morning. We weren't looking for a free night but just somewhere to stop on this route that has no RV parks anywhere near where we want to break for the night. This would work on our return and may become a regular stop, with permission.
