Rainbow Falls is a lovely swimming / recreation area in the Whiteshell Provincial Park in eastern Manitoba, Canada.

The site is located at the end of the White Lake subdivision road, off highway 307 in the Whiteshell Provincial Park. The falls themselves discharge into White Lake, one of the many lakes in the Whiteshell.

The falls themselves are pretty short, as waterfalls go. It’s quite possible to walk across the top of the falls – be careful – and the water just below the falls is shallow enough for adults to stand up. There are a lot of rocks in the water and they are slippery, so exercise caution if you choose to go into the water.

The area is very pretty and it features a little wildlife! On both of our visits, we saw turtles, and on our last visit we saw a number of small frogs.

It’s a popular area for fishing, and there is a wheelchair accessible dock off the parking lot.

To reach the falls, take the White Lake Resort exit off highway 307. You can either park at the marked location for the path to walk to the falls, or drive down the subdivision road past the convenience store all the way to the end and park in the lot adjacent to the falls.
