Historic site tours are available during summer months.

Interpreters are available to guide you through the 19th century log buildings which have been restored and furnished in meticulous detail. In the Rectory, glimpse into the spartan lifestyle of an Oblate missionary. Marvel at the rustic splendour of St. Charles Mission Church. See how the Hudson's Bay Factor and his family lived in the Factor's House. A modern Visitor Centre features an audio visual presentation, displays and a souvenir sales area.

Historic Dunvegan is nestled in the scenic valley of the mighty Peace River. Next door, 67 campsites (28 electrical, 3 handicap-accessible), a large day use/picnic area, horseshoe pits and playground make this a perfect place to visit for a day or for a week. Market gardens nearby are still farmed just as they were a hundred years ago.
