The camp is a re-enactment of the annual fur trappers' gatherings in the early 1800s.
It features historic-style campsites, traders and period-dressed re-enactors, with hands-on opportunities.
Activities include black-powder shoots, primitive archery, seminars on fur trade skills and lore, music, storytelling, children's activities and a traders' row.

Slab Camp Road is just off Lost Mountain Road. Directional signs will be placed along the way.
