My family had a blast here. There was so much to do and see. We didn't have a ton of time and truly needed more time to check things out. Lots of activities for the whole family. This is a great place

This fort is very well rebuilt. We got luck as they just baked bread which we got to sample and then went for tea. Before we left they had a muzzleloader demo which the boys enjoyed. This was fun for everyone aged 4 to 79.

This place is great. This is representing a very early period in American history so don't expect anything grand, but you need to put down the phones for a couple of hours and enjoy your surroundings

Well done park with informative exhibits, period players and assorted demonstrations. Great way to see first hand what life was like in the fort. I've made many visits here over 50 years and have enjoyed every one.

My daughter loves this forte. Have to come several times a year. Many of the works are the same from year to year and remember her. Love the cooking and wedding reenactment. Very good value.

We also did the $75 family pass and for us the option worked great as we stayed over several days and could take in different sites throughout our stay.
