Cabin Rental Lake Winnipeg
About 35 percent of Manitoba consists of plains, called the Interior Plains. Two major subdivisions of them are recognized. Much the larger of the two is the First Prairie Level, or the Manitoba Lowland. Its elevation ranges from 180 to 270 m ( 600 to 900 ft ) . The Manitoba Lowland encompasses the Red River Valley and the area of three large lakes—,.Winnipeg, Winnipegosis, and Manitoba. During glacial times the Manitoba Lowland was for a very long period occupied by a vast lake, called Lake Agassiz. Surface features and soils of the lowland reflect the various levels attained by that ancient lake. Some areas, for example, have gravelly beach deposits or sandy delta materials or even old dune belts.

Others have fine soils formed in the deeper lake basins.About 16 percent of the surface area of Manitoba is covered by lakes and large rivers. The largest and most important of the lakes is Lake Winnipeg, 428 km ( 266 mi ) in length. Next in size are lakes Winnipegosis and Manitoba. Several rivers are noteworthy. The Saskatchewan River flows from the west and enters Lake Winnipeg via Cedar Lake. A much shorter river, the Winnipeg, links the Lake of the Woods in southwestern Ontario with Lake Winnipeg. The Red River enters Manitoba from the south and is joined by the muddy Assiniboine at the city of Winnipeg. Below the city the Red River has been canalized to provide a navigation route to Lake Winnipeg. All these major rivers and many lesser ones converge on Lake Winnipeg, which in turn is drained through the Nelson River to Hudson Bay. South of the Nelson River is the Hayes River and its tributary system, and to the north is the Churchill River system, which also flows to Hudson Bay.
