Visiting the fort is like stepping back in time. Reconstruction is very good and interesting. Its a nice way to spend a few hours.
We visited the Fort Whoop up site and found it to be the most accurate historically of the period whiskey traders - there is a large representation of the Blood tribe as well as the NWMP - highly recommend it for anyone interested in Native History as well as period history
We enjoyed the hot chocolate & the old fashioned Christmas celebration full of history of pioneer days and times gone by. The Fort gives the history of the area which is fascinating. After a visit to the fort enjoy the surrounding Indian Battle Park with it's nature trails and playgrounds.
