Onanole, Manitoba, is a small town in the Parkland area just outside Riding Mountain National Park and a short distance from Wasagming (Clear Lake). With its beautiful hilly land and proximity to Clear Lake, it is a popular tourist destination in the summer months. A town of approximately 500 grows exponentially in the summer months.

Sporty’s RV Park is the centre of attention. Besides accommodations, they have fantastic pizza, live music, markets and several other events that attract and bring in even more people to the area.

However, you can expect to pay more versus regular grocery stores as there aren’t many options in the area. A short drive to Erickson and shopping at Co-op for your long-term stay may be a better option. That being said, Home Hardware is a convenient stop when you require something.
