What is there to do?

Cumberland House Provincial Park is the site of the first inland Hudson's Bay Company post and the oldest village in the province. Today, the only visible remnant of the post is the thick, stone-walled, 1890s powder house, which was used for storing gunpowder. Parts of the Northcote, a steamboat used by the fur trade and at Batoche during the North-West Resistance, are also preserved at the park.

The post closed in 1925 and the only remainder is the thick stone-walled powder house. There are no onsite facilities, so it's important to bring everything you need with you for your day out here. It's located in the village, so make you get an information brochure at the village office or conact the Ministry of Parks for more information. 

The post is on a flat, glassed area within a park overlooking the river. The powder house is still original in design and features a pyramid roof, too-foot-thick walls, heavy plant foors and interior lead classing. The fittings from the Northcote speaks to the site's connection with steamship transportation including the boilers and signaling cannon. The landscape around will allow you to further explore the character and look out at the views across the river.
