Elk Island National Park National Parks

Elk Island is basically Jurassic Park, except the creatures outside your vehicle are slightly more cuddly: bison, elk, moose, white-tailed deer and mule deer. If you’re lucky, you might even spot an elusive Alberta lynx. ● Buckle up: No app can tell you when there’s a bison traffic jam ahead, but it's a real thing. Roll down the window and breathe in the earthy bison-y scent of the protected herd. ● Learn something new: New to camping? Ever tried pemmican, the food that sustained the indigenous populations of the area? Interpretive programs in the park will get you up to speed.

Fort Heritage Precinct

Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta

For thirty-six years (1875 to 1911) the old fort saw mountings in hot haste, couriers from Battleford or Fort Mcleod riding in on exhausted horses, or expeditions setting out with horses, dogs, or with boats. The arrival of Indian prisoners with a country-wide reputation for badness, the assembly in the midnight hours to go to the assistance of settlers threatened by prairie fires; appeals for vaccine to fight the smallpox or for assistance in the involuntary arrival of future citizens; to the Mounted Police came all those who were sick and hungry, those who lost property or were lost themselves.
