Step into a reconstructed fur post from the winter of 1804. Meet a French voyageur, a British fur trade clerk and visit an Ojibwe encampment. The visitor center houses an expansive exhibit gallery with a 24-foot birch canoe, a 30-foot tall stone fireplace and a gift shop. Open Memorial Day through the end of September. The Snake River heritage trails are open year round for hiking, snowshoeing and skiing.
