a very hot day but witnessing the musket firing demonstration was very good and the operative certainly seemed to know his stuff. weld worth a visit, especially in 2017 as it's Canada 150 and entry is free!!!

The entrance to park was free as had free park pass celebrating Canada's 150 but parking was $6. The Fort itself is okay . We enjoyed the walk outside the park more. It is part of the Bruce Trail which is over 400km.

It was interesting to learn about the war from the other perspective as we are Americans. You can tour it in an hour. They had people displaying musket shooting and others who could answer questions.

This is a nice fort, small, but gives you a taste of history of the region. Just walking around it could be a nice activity.

Not sure why they say parks are free with the Canada Pass. We had to pay $5 per person because of special event (rather uneventful and not related to the fort at all we actually avoided the special event) the musket show was great the...More

A historical re-enactment was taking place when we visited. Extremely informative about WW1 and war of 1812 history. Beautiful, well maintained site, highly recommend a visit.

Enjoyed your post about this Fort. Do you happen to recall how much the admission price was per person? We are 2 of us both over 65 yrs. old. Thanks!

It was free due to the Canada 150 passes. Parking was not being enforced at the time we visited so it was free. We spent two hours there and it was a great visit. Cheers
Is it worth the drive from Niagra Falls if it's going to be dark soon and we don't have much time?

I'm sorry I just saw this question, as my reply is probably after the fact. However, for future reference for other travelers, I would say no, don't pay the entrance fee if you are limited on time. Our family found the... More
