Overview
More
his old British fort is located on Île aux Noix, in the middle of the Richelieu River. No bridge connects this island, with its fabulous destiny. There isn't any choice: you have to leave your vehicle behind. The boat is how you get there! The children will love it. The crossing takes five minutes. Just long enough to cross the time barrier and tread the ground of an outstanding site.

Well maintained site. Restoration still under way. Check out officers' and soldiers' quarters: very interesting. You need to take a small boat to get to the fort which sits on its own on a huge green space. Bring your picnic. Snacks available on site.

A fort on an island in the Richelieu River. The entry fee includes the ferry to and from the island, and the fort and island are unspoilt. The site is well maintained, but do not expect a theme park type of tourist attraction. Go there...More

Didn't spend the whole day there. Just few hours. Nice to see some history. Place very well maintained. The guides are very nice and welcoming. The tour was great ad they explained the whole history and buildings in the fort since it was built.

Interesting fort in Canada. Although it's in Quebec, and they speak French we had no problems with the language. The people at the park spoke very good English. It's a small fort, but it had quite a bit of history on it. They French and...More

Fortified by the French, rapidly taken over by the British, captured by the (soon-to-be) Americans in 1775 and then re-taken by the British before being re-fortified, and then... nothing exciting happened, even during the wars between the British and the Americans. The fort as it...More

This is a lovely place for a day outing with the family. At less than $8 for adult admission (which includes the boat ride), it's a great value. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the grounds are the perfect place to stretch your legs...More
