As with many historical sites - it helps to have a little background before visiting, it will make your experience that much better. Batoche was the small community on the South Saskatchewan River that Louis Riel set up his provisional government in. The community itself...More

Had a wonderful day at Batoche. A word of warning though, the site has a lot of tall grasses and is a haven for ticks. One on me and one in my daughters clothes. Really worth visiting, but... make sure to check yourself for ticks!!!!!
