This was a HIGHLIGHT!!!! Set back in 1816, our tour guide never ONCE stepped out of character as Antoine, a Voyageur with the fur trade company! This is a replicate of the original post. The canoe making building was incredible and just seeing up close how much each Voyageur was responsible for carrying on their back was incomprehensible. I am SO glad we made this a priority stop on our trip to Thunder Bay! i encourage you to make it one of yours!!!

My wife and I visited here over the Thanksgiving weekend. The park also does a haunted tour in October. The guide we had was truly incredible. His knowledge of this area and what the fort meant to Canadian history made this tour so worthwhile. It is truly a place you should visit if in the area.

Learned a lot about the history of this fort and settlement, as well as the distinction between Fort William and Port Arthur. I was lucky enough to get a personalized tour as no one else had joined the tour time that I signed up for. Be aware that the tour guides are all playing a role, which confused me at the beginning, but quickly got the idea of it.
