Local History
Wood Mountain's first European settlers came in the 1870's. Boundary Commission survey teams came shortly after. They built cabins that in 1874 became the first North West Mounted Police post. Sitting Bull took refuge here after the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876.
Campsites
There are approximately 60 sites to choose from. You can camp in the privacy of the trees or try a larger site for family and friends to camp together. Many sites have picnic tables and fire pits. Fire wood is available from Park Attendants.
Play Area
There is a playground next to the pool that consists of swings, climbers and slides. Next to the concession there is a covered sand pit for children to play in.
Concession
The park has a hall for family and special gatherings. A concession booth also operates 7 days a week from June to September offering great tasting meals and treats for all kids of all ages. If you want to eat or cook indoors try your barbecue out in the summer kitchen.
Special Attractions
RODEO RANCH MUSEUM - offers you a western welcome. Displays in the museum feature the life of the cowboys and ranchers who first came to the area in the 1800's. Western and rodeo artifacts, an adobe, a turf club building and a pioneer kitchen are reminders of early ranch life. You can help make a rope, cook bannock and make lye soap. Open 7 days a week, May to September. It has over 1200 historical photos and 2000 artifacts and information centre for Grasslands National Park. WOOD MOUNTAIN POST HISTORIC PARK - The Historic Post is a partially restored North West Mounted Police post. In the 2 reconstructed buildings, its displays depict much of the NWMP history as well as that of the Sioux who came to the area. The displays also contain artifacts from two archaeological digs conducted on the site. The museum is fun for kids too. You can use old style hand-cuffs on your friends or sit in a 19th century jail cell. It offers excellent school tour programs and has a tour guide on site. SITTING BULL - the famous Sioux medicine man, Sitting Bull and as many as 5000 of his Sioux followers took refuge here from the US Army after the battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. Although Sitting Bull returned to the US in 1890 and later died, some of his followers remained and their decedents still live in the area to this day. A monument to Sitting Bull has been placed at the top of the hill overlooking the Regional Park. WOOD MOUNTAIN STAMPEDE - If you want some exciting rodeo action, the Wood Mountain Stampede is the place to be! Come and sit under the brush covered grand stand and watch the CCA approved rodeo. The rodeo features all major events and a few special ones too! Don't forget the dances on Friday and Saturday nights in the big Out Post Building. The rodeo is held annually on the second Sunday in July, with action starting on the Friday before. SUMMER SERIES - for local rodeo action attend the summer series which has become an annual event. Beginning in May, the series is on each Thursday night up until Rodeo weekend. Come and join in the fun!
