If you go unescorted (which may not even be possible), the fort is just a fort with a bunch of cannon -- though the location is very scenic. Our tour group was led by Rhonda, whose explanations of the history were very informative and (as appropriate) funny.

It was freezing cold on the day that I visited and hard to enjoy but even if nice, it was just another fort.

The staff are so enthusiastic about the site, they make the trip across the inlet worthwhile. The trip across is great in the whale season as you get a free close up of them if your lucky.

This fort was very interesting to explore, however the mosquitoes and no see ums were so bad we were unable to stay and explore everything we wanted to. Be sure when you go in the summer months you cover up or take bug spray.

We had a short tour by the rangers as the wind was starting to get strong off the Hudson. Very informative, but it would have been nice to have an indoor facility as well to relay more of the history in a warmer area.

It gives a feeling of how isolated it would have been to have been there in the 1700 s There aren't many facilities or information on the ground

Very good can't believe people lived there it was so cold on our visit. Rhonda the Park Ranger was an excellent speaker and made the visit very interesting. had to keep your eyes open for Polar Bears as they visited the area. Told us the last group had to move quickly when a bear started to approach them.

I would rate this a "don't miss" site. We were particularly lucky to get a Parks Canada guide who gave us the best talk I've ever heard. She was a history buff and gave us a unique view of the fort's history, particularly the role of women. We had an armed guard who served as bear lookout. He rather overplayed... More
