I toured the Fort as part of a trip to the Duck Lake area. The fort is a 20 minute or so drive from Duck Lake through the Beardy First Nation. The entry fee to the fort was 4 dollars a person. I believe it...More

I thought Fort Carlton was great to see. It's not the original fort but it's been rebuilt on the same location and thereby gives you an authentic feel of what the original buildings must have been like. We also cooked some bannock-on-a-stick over an open...More
