Welcome to Liz Lake!

We like to describe Liz Lake as a rustic wilderness camp  located within the boreal forest just south of Thompson, Manitoba. Our camp is a beautiful place to explore the surrounding forests, fish, canoe, and enjoy what the outdoors has to offer.

There is no running water nor are there outdoor bathrooms, however, we have electricity! Visitors need to bring their own troop gear (cooking and eating) with them as the camp supplies the basics and not much more. Potable water is not available and must be brought by each group onsite.

 There is a variety of buildings to accommodate your needs, including a kitchen, bunkhouse, and washroom building.

Our bunkhouse will sleep 22 people in double wooden bunk beds (mattresses not included). There is no designated male or female sections, but there is a changeroom for privacy. The bunkhouse is heated by a gas furnace in the winter.

The kitchen has 2 fridges, 2 gas stoves, and 1 electric stove. We have an assortment of pots, pans, and cooking utensils. A dish kit is recommended as we may not have everything you need. The kitchen will seat 25 people. There is a wood stove and a small electric heater for the colder months. Towels, paper towels, cloths, etc. are not supplied.

Our camp offers 6 walk-in campsites where your group can tent. These camps all have accessible trails that aren’t too far from the main camp buildings. These sites have benches, a picnic table to set up a kitchen, and a fire pit. There is 1 main campfire area down by the lake.

Things to do: During the summer you can canoe, fish, hike, geocache, etc. During the winter you can hike, ice fish, snowshoe, stargaze, and cross country ski

The camp is located on the shore of Liz Lake within Paint Lake Provincial Park, which is 31 km south of Thompson, or 712 km north of Winnipeg.  Once you reach the Paint Lake junction, you turn southeast onto highway 375 and follow the road for 3.5 km until you reach the turn to our camp. The road going into the camp has a sign which reads “Liz Lake Scouts Camp” and has a bright yellow gate that you drive through.
