My kids enjoyed the short walk and visit so much, especially they got a booklet of things for them to do.... they enjoyed the solider fired off his weapons and explained how to use them... Park staffs are super nice and friendly. Thanks to Canada...More

It was interesting to learn about the war from the other perspective as we are Americans. You can tour it in an hour. They had people displaying musket shooting and others who could answer questions.

This is a nice fort, small, but gives you a taste of history of the region. Just walking around it could be a nice activity.

Not sure why they say parks are free with the Canada Pass. We had to pay $5 per person because of special event (rather uneventful and not related to the fort at all we actually avoided the special event) the musket show was great the...More

A historical re-enactment was taking place when we visited. Extremely informative about WW1 and war of 1812 history. Beautiful, well maintained site, highly recommend a visit.

Some people detest learning anything when on vacation. We have a hard time imagining that. We love history! The staff were all polite and helpful. Guides were great. Re-enactments very good. Would recommend to all who enjoy history.

We arrived a little late in the day to see all the fort, but what I can share is that this is a very typical fort in design but it had something extra. A lot of forts that I have been to in the past...More

Enjoyed your post about this Fort. Do you happen to recall how much the admission price was per person? We are 2 of us both over 65 yrs. old. Thanks!

It was free due to the Canada 150 passes. Parking was not being enforced at the time we visited so it was free. We spent two hours there and it was a great visit. Cheers
Is it worth the drive from Niagra Falls if it's going to be dark soon and we don't have much time?

I'm sorry I just saw this question, as my reply is probably after the fact. However, for future reference for other travelers, I would say no, don't pay the entrance fee if you are limited on time. Our family found the... More
