And canoes, York boats, Red River carts, dogsleds....Fort Carlton is a step back into prairie history. The interpreters and the site itself give a sense of events and relationships that were important to the Indigenous, Metis and Europeans of the time. Interpreters, signed interpretive trails...More

I'm giving Fort Carlton a Terrible rating, because of the fact it was not open for the May long weekend, which was really surprising since this is usually when most of these historical sites do open there doors. We drove a long way, and so...More
