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.


Highlights
On those hot days you can go for a dip in our brand new outdoor swimming pool! There is a beach entrance at one end and it gradually gets deeper with a diving board.  The water is guarded by experienced lifeguards and lessons are taught weekday mornings. The public can swim in the afternoons and evenings all week. Season passes and daily rates are available.

Church Camp Woodboia offers youth a fun summertime activity. There are two ball diamonds in the north-east corner of the park. The park is a good site for family reunions, because of the spacious campsites and family activities available.

The park has a hall for family gatherings and also a booth with confectionery goods and meals. If you want to eat or cook indoors, a summer kitchen is available for use. There are also laundry, shower, and trailer facilities.

During the second weekend in July, you can catch the Wood Mountain Stampede. There are many other events to take in at the park, including Cowboy Poetry gatherings.

The Wood Mountain Historic Park is a short, scenic walk along a cut path from the Regional Park. A monument to Sitting Bull is atop a hill on the park grounds, visible from the pool.
