Next to the Broadway quality Post Playhouse shows, the Hayrack Breakfast is the best event at Ft. Robinson. I have been on two morning trips, August 2011 and August 2013, up to the buttes and have enjoyed every minute.

any history buff interested in the era of the Indian Wars of the 1860's and 1870's ought to visit Fort Robinson state park. It is the site of the assassination of famed Lakota warrior Crazy Horse as well as the tragic finale of the Cheyenne Exodus in January 1879

We stopped in mid-October on a Black Hills road trip. Most of the park closes down after the Labor Day holiday. Not a lot of the buildings were open. Interesting place to drive and walk through, especially considering the history of the fort. Would have loved to spend more time and really looked around. Would be nice if some of... More

We booked a site in the Campground. We were the only ones there. Huge trees with lots of squirrels. We were told the water was still on in the Campground however it was turned off. We had two horses and the barn facilities were very nice. Trails were good but not really well marked. Showers had lots of bugs, assume... More

Part of the facility was closed for the season, but the rest was great and the people are very nice!

We love this old, historic park where soldiers used to fight against the Indians. The old barracks, store, etc. are still there and have been restored. People and family reunions can stay in the park IN the different houses depending on how big your group is! It cost, of course, but it is a fun place to stay. There is... More

We always enjoy our yearly trip here. We take our horses here to ride and the scenery is just beautiful when you get high up in the bluffs. Also interesting history.

We stayed in cabin L10 for two nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet tremendously. The cabin was large--three bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and bath--and the park was lovely. There were two negatives: everything, and I mean everything, cost extra and the trail ride was terrible. First, when I pay to rent a cabin in a state park, I do... More

We only stopped here at the "Trailside Museum of Natural History" because the Stagecoach Museum in Lusk, Wy was closed and we had a little extra time, and were surprised at how "good" it was. It's basically just one not-real-big room devoted to the many fossils found in Nebraska. That includes one huge mammoth skeleton in the center, and two... More

Lodging is in buildings of various types from the historical fort, which was originally built during the Indian Wars. Since then the Fort was used to train dogs and horses and even detain some German Prisoners of War. There are two places to eat on the Fort, both tasty and fun. A variety of activities such as horseback riding, jeep... More
