WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2015) - This long weekend many Winnipeggers will head out to kick-off the summer season by camping at one of the provincial parks. Although ideal for families, if you're younger or not into family-style camping, you might want to have a bit more fun than is allowed at a dry, government-run campground. Most provincial parks have alcohol bans in effect on long weekends and even if Mom and Dad want to enjoy a leisurely glass of wine, they can't in a dry camping area. Hill Top Resort, a private RV park/campground, located on Highway 59 at Beaconia, Manitoba, is an excellent alternative. This May long weekend (May 15-18) Hill Top Resort hosts its season opener featuring 3 bands, a motocross event with local MOTMX, hot food, cold beverages, and tons of fun. The park offers more than 3,000 camping sites and currently has 50 serviced sites.

"The May long weekend is the most highly anticipated camping weekend of the year, and now there is an option for fun-seekers of all ages," says Rick Thiessen, co-owner of Hill Top Resort. "This is our first year in operation, so we're really excited about it. We're delighted to welcome camping lovers from all corners of our great province."

Reserving a campsite in a provincial park can be next to impossible. Hill Top Resort has plenty of space that can be booked online for long weekend revelers. Amenities nearby include a restaurant, entertainment centre, volleyball, hiking, bike trails, and a motosport park. An added bonus just for Hill Top guests: wristbands can be presented at many local businesses for discounts on recreational activities.

Formerly the site of Summerfest in the early 2000s, Hill Top Resort is a private RV park/campground that won't seize your long weekend wobbly pops at the gate this May long weekend. Originally designed as a festival campground capable of handling the massive crowds expected with world class events, the park layout is designed so the young at heart have less restrictions on noise and behaviour while families can still have a great experience in a more subdued and serene setting.
