Historic Reenactment of the 1840's
Woolaroc's Mountain Man Camp, led by brothers Wes and Roger Butcher, is a living history event that recreates the life of a fur trader in the 1840's. The camp started out as an unpaid test run some 25 years ago, and has since evolved into one of the signature pieces of Woolaroc.
Experience the life of a Fur Trader
The camp features a very realistic reenactment of a Fur Trader’s Camp from around 1840. Guests can learn about how tipis were constructed to protect the traders from the elements of the weather and how they were made to assemble and disassemble for quick travel.
Want to learn how to throw a tomahawk or shoot a black powder long gun? The Mountain Man Camp is the place to be!
