Horseback riders in Spruce Woods Provincial Park use an extensive network of trails. In co-operation with Spruce Woods Park and Park staff, the Friends of Spruce Woods operate two equestrian campsites in the park. One is located about five miles directly east of the Kiche Manitou Campground at the old stable and the other on the banks of the Assiniboine River which is reached by Park Road north of Cypress River. Backcountry trails and roads make up many miles of enjoyable riding for families and groups who take advantage of the facilities and the scenery of Spruce Woods Park. Camping is open to anyone who wishes to spend time in the park or you can come for a day ride on your horses. A modest camp fee is charged. It is collected through an honour system with envelopes at each site to be filled out and deposited in the steel boxes at each registration point.
The snowmobile and cross country trails in Spruce Woods Park are considered among the most scenic in Manitoba. Winter fun for the whole family is rounded out by two toboggan hills and a winter recreation area featuring a lighted outdoor skating oval, a full size hockey rink, and jam pail curling.
