  • Very friendly people working here. I went off season, so much of the fort was empty. I've heard in the summer everyone is dressed up in costume from the past. Very scenic drive, but not for trailers, or larger RV's as the road has several switchbacks. There are cliffs close by with a very good view, and if the road is dry, the trek into Alberta or back to the East block is beautiful
  • I have been there before when there were more skits etc. Definitely different interpreters bring a different element to the tour. Overall for $20 a great and cost effective way to spend a day with the family.
  • I had a wagon ride from a smaller fort two miles away to Fort Walsh, where the whole fort presentation seemed to be in 1880. The people in the fort seemed the real thing. It was a really exciting time. I was so impressed as I had also visited it when there was virtually nothing there over forty years ago, so wanted to return again. Geoffrey E L Bennett, Uk
