Not much to see unfortunately, much is left to your imagination. However there's some interesting information provided about the fur trade, the US vs Canada trade competition and many other. I guess you could find it on the web. It was a sunny day and the North Saskatchewan river was beautiful.

Great break from a paddle on the North Saskatchewan River. Leave your boats a access the Nat. Historic site. A great little gem of an authentic trading post. Real archeological digs short and informative awareness displays and when in site a terrific viewing platform of the buffalo paddock. Interpreters are well informed and keen to share their knowledge.

Enjoyed hiking through areas near the river where there had been fur trading forts. Nice presentations on the way of life and times during the fur trade. Accomodations for camping are available. Allow a couple of hours to take all the trails.

The front desk at the Hotel recommended this place to visit and we were not disappointed. We learned a great deal about the origins of the town and the first Trading Posts. As well it was a pleasant walk along the North Saskatchewan River. Worth the visit.

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
