Even though it was raining when we arrived, our day at Ft. Steele was entertaining, educational and fun !! We were able to take the "Gossip Tour" with Jasmine. She was such a great guide that offered humorous and entertaining stories about the past residents of Ft. Steele. Then after the tour through town, she was our waitress at the... More

My husband and I very much enjoyed our visit to Fort Steele. The buildings were beautiful, the staff friendly and helpful, and the price of admission very reasonable ($12.00 per adult). If your a horse lover, there is a beautiful herd of Clydesdale. There are a number of buildings being worked on, and we are looking forward to our next... More

I visited with a travel group. Lunch was good, buildings interesting and full of history, employees friendly and helpful. Nice quality items available in the stores. To my delight, I found the same “salted licorice” candies (Lakritse) I loved as a child growing up in Germany and have never seen in the States. If you are in the area and... More

My Husband Geoff and I were staying at Fairmont and fancied a day out. We were told about Fort Steele and went. We thought that a couple of hours would do but ended up staying six. The first thing we were surprised about was not having to pay to park. When we entered to pay the girl recommended that we... More

We were very pleased to find that our 2 dogs were welcomed during our visit to the heritage site. The street entertainment was fun and interactive, all the shops were really interesting and carried unique, handmade items (mostly made locally or on site) , the buildings were beautiful and the ice cream was fabulous!

We were driving past and decided to visit. The village was well laid out and each building had a story. Certain of the buildings were furnished with their original furniture or replicas, this gave you a good impression of life in the 1800s or early 1900s. The shops were incorporated very well into the story. The workers were informative, helpful... More

A well setup and run "heritage town". Lots of things to see and do. Tons of animals. Great scenery on the surrounding area. Fun vintage terrain ride. Lots of food. Interactive with the town players. Fun for the family.
