“Seedy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

It's a little seedy and sometimes folks are hanging around that are a little bit scary. They do have a fun mountain man rendezvou.

“Mountain Man weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

We were there for the mountain man weekend, lots of TeePee's, Camp Tents, folks dressed up like pioneers, mountain men, it was quite fun. The park and Fort arent in the best shape anymore but the event was great.

“authentic reconstruction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

Fort Buenaventura is a reconstruction of the fort that was built in the same location. They have artifacts on display and sometimes have Mountain Man presentations. They allow camping and my husband has taken the scouts here to camp several times. It's conveniently located in Ogden City. Even though it is in the city, you feel like you are out in the wilderness.
