Wood Mountain is a village located in south central Saskatchewan, a few kilometres north of where the famous North West Mounted Police post was originally located. For several years in the 1870s, the N.W.M.P. monitored Sitting Bull and the thousands of Sioux who fled to this area after the battle at Little Big Horn.
Today, the village has many unique and exciting tourism adventures, and is surrounded by native prairie, farms, ranches, a kaolin mine, a First Nations reservation of Lakota Sioux, Grasslands National Park, and numerous towns.
