Ft. Carlton Provincial Park

Duck Lake, SK

Fort Carlton Provincial Park takes you back in time to the rugged, adventurous days of the fur trade before Canada was a country.  This is the original site of a Hudson’s Bay Company fur-trading post that operated between 1810 and 1885.  Today, you will see a reconstructed palisade, fur and provisions store, trade store, clerk’s quarters, and tepee encampment; each of these appears much like they would have in the late 1800s.  You can see, touch and smell artifacts such as buffalo hides, beaver pelts, war clubs, blankets, guns, twist tobacco, birch bark baskets and so much more.  Staff will guide you through these areas, answering your questions and leading you in activities like playing the spoons or packing furs for the trip to England.
