You can hardly see anything, just double oval ring of raised earthworks, where a native village used to be located. Just use your imagination—and the informative plaques—to visualize how the village must have looked like approximately 500 years ago.

This is a national historic site with nothing to see. It is out in the middle of nowhere. It is the site of an old first nations settlement. There is a plaque that explains it. You take a long walk back. there is a picnic...More
