Great interactive site, staff reenacting roles of the black smith & fur traders. Reminder of different times and the relevance of the fur trade on Albertas history. Great camp grounds and tents available, excellent views of the buffalo and of course the river.

The main building has lots of history and artifacts. Very interesting. The fort outside is a nice place for kids. We wanted to enjoy the trails as well and also see the buffaloes but the weather didn't cooperate. Maybe next time.
