Fascinating place to walk around and to see what a fort would have been like. Ends with a ride on a horse drawn cart with a super guide.

This place was a blast for the whole family. There's lots of history, First Nations and otherwise. (I found it interesting how this independent trading post wasn't so racist and sold First Nations more advanced rifles, which played a big part in a famous war...More

Quite a nice little place. We went on a wagon-ride, which was excellent and informative and the horses were beautiful. Nice fort in good condition with several tipis and a decent collection of memorabilia inside. Worth the price of admission.
