Manzanita Mountain Man Rendezvous
Fun for the whole family. Step back in time and visit a Mountain Man encampment. Meet colorful characters from the North American Fur Trade era. (1815-1840) See history come alive with demonstrations of primitive skills: flint and steel fire starting, archery, tomahawk & knife throwing, blackpowder shooting, trap setting, primitive cooking, candle making and much more. And you can participate in some of these skills. Listen to the stories of those who followed Lewis and Clark into the western mountains. See primitive camps, teepees, a blacksmith shop and plenty of period dressed people ready to talk with you and show you around. Lots of great photo opportunities. Boy Scouts troops can camp for free. School classes are welcome during the week. Please contact us to let us know if you are coming.
