    Fort Steele / Cranbrook / Kimberly

    Will be up in the Cranbrook / Kimberly / Fort Steele area for 3 or 4 days on the July long weekend. We will be doing the whole Fort Steele thing one day, otherwise just touring around etc. Anything else we should make sure to do/see while in the area? Any gun/hunting shops around? Any recommendations for meals?

    Agreed with what twanger said. The Cottage (cranbrook), Fire Hall Kitchen and Tap (cranbrook), Pedal and Tap (kimberley) for a meal. If you have time there's lots of good hiking trails as well.

    Pedal and tap or the sully in kimberley for food. The Shed if you are a micro brew guy. Mountain man is a very over priced gun shop.

    The Heid Out in Cranbrook is a good brew pub, some great hiking in Kimberley, Mawson's Sports in Creston has better prices than Mountain Man in Cranbrook.

    Recommend the old Barn house in Kimberly, a real dinning experience. Sit down and try a few different things and a bottle of wine and eat food made from scratch for a few hrs. Nice hike to beautiful country close to fort steele. Check out mause creek, you can drive way up and then just a short hike and your in the alpine. Lake kookanusa is a must see imo. Blue water and light sand beaches. Whiteswan lake and hot springs are always nice to see. These places are popular, along with every place in the ek that is nice. It will be a bit busy but they are very nice places.
