Revisiting a hidden gem located 30 minutes from Brandon

CJ's Snack Shack and Mini Golf Rivers, MB

Sometimes all you need is a day to recharge, which is why today we decided to re-visit one of the hidden gems that we discovered in our travels last summer.

Last August introduced our readers to a hidden gem (CJ’s Snack Shack) located just 30 minutes from the city.  Conveniently situated inside Rivers Provincial Park (beach and campground), CJ’s Snack Shack is the perfect day getaway for those families looking to hop in their car for a change of scenery. Once you have finished chowing down on some of the amazing food, you can also choose from a number of activities to complete your trip including mini-golf, kayak & paddle boat rentals, or a relaxing day on the beach.

Owners Lorne & Sue Green told they made a number of enhancements over the offseason including constructing a new expanded building to better serve their clients. They also added a small general store, new menu items, and additional staff to handle the increased workload. They now are also the provider of firewood within the park.

The new season has started off very busy for the couple who said they are in the midst of their Canada Day planning. In addition to several menu specials there will be a mini-golf competition with prizes in different categories. They will also be introducing a new special menu item…a tortilla stuffed with a cream cheese mixture filling that is rolled & deep fried and then tossed in cinnamon sugar.
