The original fort, used for fur trading and trapping, has been reconstructed on a 32-acre tract of land, part of a state park where visitors can see stockade and cabin replicas, rent canoes and picnic.

My first visit was to participate in a rendezvous in 1989. So much fur trade era history and the role that the Ogden and Weber Rivers played. They have a Traders' Row open to the public on Saturdays.

Beautiful area adjacent to ogden. Canoes to rent, great camping, lots of cool events. Right behind the fort is the River walk which extends in both directions and is a fun place to walk or hike.

The dog park area is really great. The river runs next to the trails and there are a lot of trees! A great place for a walk away from it all and dog friendly.

We thought the fort would be a good spot to visit on our one day in Ogden. But when we got there, the fort was locked up. The park attendant was too busy on the phone to let us in, so we left without seeing...More

It is just a park with a couple of baseball diamonds and a very small wooden fort. The staff, if that is what they were, said nothing to us.
