History of the Area
Located on an 84-acre river tract of land near the Weber River, the fort symbolizes a period of western history that was the transition from nomadic ways of the Indian tribes and trappers to the first permanent settlers in the Great Basin. Facilities at the fort include picnic areas, a canoeing pond, the replica fort including three cabins and restrooms.

One of the most fascinating periods in Western American folklore is the mountain man era. The names such as Jim Bridger, Peter Skene Ogden, Jedediah Smith, Etienne Provost, and Hugh Glass, bring to mind strong, independent and rugged men who fearlessly lived in the Rocky Mountains. There they traded with the Indian tribes, married the Indian women, trapped the rivers for beaver, and lived off the land. The legendary rendezvous, where mountain men gathered annually to trade furs for supplies and to eat, drink, and tell stories and demonstrate their skills, have become as famous as the men themselves.
