History enthusiasts can enjoy a one-of-a-kind historical experience at Camp O’Roseau. The Aboriginal camp sits along the banks of the O’Roseau River and offers visitors the opportunity to lice like the Métis for a few days. Sleep on a buffalo robe in a teepee, cook your own bannock, hear the stories of Voyageurs and Native legends, do finger weaving and sing around the campfire.
“We want visitors to experience nature here,” says Georges Beaudry, owner of O’Roseau. “At night, when all the lights are out, we are alone in the world and can watch the stars in silence.”
The Roseau Valley has historical significance for the francophone community. The Roseau River is one of the first rivers used by the Voyageurs. And further downstream is the Crow Wing Trail, used by the Métis for the fur trade in the 19th century,.
