Make sure the site is open before you go. Please note that if the site is closed, you will not have access to see this attraction. You cannot park and hike to the location even when its closed. However the site is very beautiful and I look forward to coming back once it reopens (season and covid free).

Drove past the sign and had to go and have a look as the name was so intriguing. And what we found was so interesting, the best part was talking to a gentleman, I apologise I can not remember his name, who talked us through it all and answered all our questions. What a great place to visit and so interesting to learn about the history of the area.

To bad it was closed but coming back into Clairsholm, I did see a few buffalo, in a field, plus was a few calf's. wonder why, the open area couldn't have been open to the public.

Visited because of the unique name, but was overwhelmed by the level of preservation and the wonderful history captured. Its preservation is a blessing, as most similar sites had been overrun by past curiosity seekers and treasure hunters. This place is a survivor, and a must see if you're in the area, especially if you love studying history and heritage.

This was an amazing learning experience for both my daughter and I. We knew very little about the Blackfoot culture and found this site fascinating. The interpretive centre is fantastic with so much information presented in a way that keeps all ages engaged. I highly recommend visiting this heritage site.
