The interpreters and the site itself give a sense of events and relationships that were important to the Indigenous, Metis and Europeans of the time. Interpreters, signed interpretive trails...More

I thought Fort Carlton was great to see. It's not the original fort but it's been rebuilt on the same location and thereby gives you an authentic feel of what the original buildings must have been like. We also cooked some bannock-on-a-stick over an open...More
