Road Condition Report:
August 3, 2013
The road is easily passable by car or truck. No 4x4 required and while we were there the parking lot was full of vehicles. There is only one spot along the road with a deep puddle, easily passible with a truck, easy to go around with a car.

Beach Condition:

We camped out at Beaconia the August long weekend and enjoyed a nice private spot in the sand and sun. The beach is getting well used by lots of naturalists and on the Saturday we said hello to over two dozen others out for some sun. The beach was anything but packed and it was easy to keep to a nice secluded spot, or mingle with others.

Lake Winnipeg is at the highest regulated level allowable by Manitoba Hydro (715 feet above sea level). This has put a lot of usable beach underwater. When the water is lower there you can find a decent spot to dress down a short distance from the parking lot. With the water as high is it is right now the only usable beach area is along the most southern tip of Beaconia closest to Patricia Beach. Expect close to a 1km walk.

Because the water is so high a slight wind can cause waves to move all the way up the beach. Camping is technically prohibited at Beaconia, although so is nudity. The restriction on camping doesn't seem to be enforced. A naturalist who respects the beach, keeps the noise down, and rucks their garbage out can get away with a beautiful weekend in the sun. If you do camp at Beaconia be sure to pitch your tent as far away from the water's edge as you can. There's evidence of tents that were swamped in the middle of the night by rising waves. While we were there the August long weekend, the waves made a 25 foot difference in distance to the water. We put our tent all the way up on the flat but were happy when the wind died down over the weekend. Keep an eye on the forecast if you plan to sleep out.

There seems to be a growing pile of garbage in the parking lot and more and more broken beer bottles on the beach. We picked up a shopping bag of broken bottles over the weekend. We would recommend keeping your shoes on if you go for a walk and please take garbage out with you. If people took their own garbage and a small bag of someone else's litter out with them we could easily clean up this secluded paradise in a few years.
