Fort Kluskus was a Hudson's Bay Company fort and trading post located near the Kluskus Lakes on the northern perimeter of the Chilcotin District of the Central Interior of British Columbia, Canada. Established in 1844 it was effectively a relocation of trading operations from Fort Chilcotin farther south, which had failed due to disinterest and resistance by the Tsilhqot'in people. Fort Kluskus did not succeed due to already-established strong trade relations between the local Dakelh people and coastal peoples.
