On your way here, visit our info caboose!
As you turn left onto Hwy 39, you can't help but see our big red caboose. Possibly the most charming info center in the province (maybe even the country), it is full of friendly people and all kinds of travel information on the Mackenzie region and other north-western destinations.
Situated in a refurbished railway caboose, this unique visitor centre is a historical curiosity from an era gone by. Nearby is a rest area that offers picnic tables and clean washrooms for your convenience.
Inside, you’ll find free maps and tourism guides, travel updates and advisories, planning tips and a list of services and sights to see. They offer a small variety of snacks and drinks as well as a selection of unique mementos for purchase.
And sometimes they even have cookies...
