- At our Native American Encampment, you can learn about the indigenous tribe of this area, the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation. These Native Americans are the descendants of survivors of the Bear River Massacre, the largest Indian massacre west of the Mississippi. There are activities for kids and adults here.
- Visitors can also see a Mountain Man Camp and Fur Trade area and learn about how the fur trade influenced the settlement of the west. See how Mountain Men trapped beaver or lived in the wilderness, and throw tomahawks.
- The Pioneer Settlement teaches guests about westward expansion, where they can see a dugout, a homesteader’s cabin, or even try pulling a handcart. There are activities for all ages here. Games for kids and hands-on demonstrations for adults and many activities in between.
