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.

Very cool place to stop in at! We walked the interpreted walking path along the North Saskatchewan river! They have buffalo on site the we viewed from a distance. Cool to see the history and experience David Thompsons journey and where the river brought them!...More
