  • I grew up in the area and visited here many times as a child. In later years, we took our children here. Just this weekend, I took my grandson on Sunday, and the next day I took another grandchild! It is still a captivating place and I loved it! So did they. They especially enjoyed the bingo card in the booklet provided for kids. They are still talking about it. Great staff, extremely reasonable entry fees. Thank you!
  • I loved this place. Having the rebuild of the old fort really shows you what European settlers lived like and went through. Could have had a bit more to do with First Nations. Felt that was lacking majorly. However a stunning view.
