Even when this place is closed, it still offers incomparable views. Bring a lunch and enjoy the scenery.

A recreated 17th century French Trading Pos with a commanding view of the Bay. Lots of furnished rooms to explore - fun for all the family.

Walking around this habitat...you get a feel how families, and solders lived, how rough it was and how tough it would have been during the winter months...very informative!

Just full of atmosphere. The first Parks Canada re-cration I believe. So well done it's lasted 70years or so. A wonderful spot.

Though the restoration only dates to the 1940's it was really well done and very interesting about life of the French right after the arrival of Champlain.
