There is also a free campground in town according to our friend Rich, but we haven't found it yet, we did see a sign though, it must be located at the city park.

Lake Menno location

We've been to Menno 3 times so far, the first time it was too dark to take pictures, the second time, it was pouring rain, so finally I have some pictures of Menno, because we drove there to find out if the nursery was open. Unfortunately, it wasn't, the lady inside says they don't have plants until April, so we'll have to go back.

We took a drive down Main Street anyway to see what kind of businesses are located there.
