Stand where our fur trade history really happened. Discover life 225 years ago.
Touch real furs, strike a spark with flint and steel and take a selfie in a smoke tanned moose hide tipi. Whether you come with a passion for history or with a desire to make great family memories, you will be intrigued by the stories of the people and their lives in these fur trade forts. It was 1792. Why did they come? What was their relationship with the Cree and Blackfoot people of this region?
Your personal guide will unwrap the story while you visit the Interpretive gallery and then as you walk the winding woodland trail to where the forts once stood. Pause along the way to look for the rare ladyslippers and enjoy the sounds and smells of the aspen forest. Perhaps you will find a few wild strawberries or Saskatoons to eat.
Tours take about 1 ½ hours. We have fully accessible washrooms, displays and a viewing platform in the Interpretive Centre with more limited access to the fort sites.
We are open from 10:00am to 5:00pm daily from May 15 to Labour Day.
