Wonderful place to visit, staff are excellent and so informative. My 7 year old son loved the teepees and the fort. Some good walking trails and a small picnic area. Very scenic down by the North Saskatchewan River, a great day!

We attended for the local Canada Day party. They set up a stage in one of the fields, turn the parking lot into a small (3 or 4 vendor) food truck lot, and have hay rides down to the tipi village. It was a nice way to spend 2 or 3 hours on a hot afternoon. Free admission for Canada... More

Took place at the Historic Site and the site is beside the North Saskatchewan River. The view is breath taking. Quiet and serene A walk back in time.

Stopped in on our way home. Cheap $7 for the two of us, our dog was free. Saw the bison running in the paddock. Easy walk along the trails. Informative about the history of the area.

Visited with some friends and it was a bit educational; much smaller than I expected. Observed the cannon and musket firing which was interesting although it wasn't as good as I have seen at other Canadian national historic sites. $10 per adult For about an hours entertainment

Like previous visits to similar fur trade posts further down stream on the North Saskatchewan River, this tour reinforced the value of the fur trade to exploring and settling western Canada.These are very valuable reminders of our past history and the tough people who were required to live this life in the early 1800s.

Maybe the problem with the Rocky Mountain Historic Site is that there really isn't much to see. Except for a couple of chimneys, there's nothing left of the four forts that were built on the site, and the 1/3 size replica is fun for the kids, but too small to convey a true appreciation of what life would have been...
