We went in our 30' RV the first week of August and had a wonderful time. Wide roads, large sites, and beautiful views. Ah, the history of this place ! Over the century the area has been used as a wilderness fort, Calvary horse training, war dogs, a German POW camp, and as a training site for the Olympic Equestrian... More

This is a great park to go to. So much to do for families with kids of all ages or just a couple by themselves. Very much worth the drive from anywhere in Nebraska. I would also recommend stopping here on your way to or from the Black Hills. The grounds are wonderfully maintained and the views of the surrounding... More

We rented 16A, one of the large brick houses. The house had 3 levels, with bedrooms on the top two levels and a bathroom on each level. There was plenty of room for our group of 16 to spread out. Members of our group went fishing, took jeep rides and went on the trail ride. Unfortunately the pool was closed... More

So much history! This park is well-kept and there are many activities you can sign up for: trail rides, kayaking, tubing, stage coach rides, and jeep tours. There are several museums and buildings to tour. Campgrounds and several lodging options but book ahead of time.

My wife and I were traveling from Casper, WY and stopped at Fort Robinson. This place is loaded with history. It is also very clean and family friendly. The Cavalry was once housed here. The barracks and the residences have been kept in great shape. Take your time. There is lots to see here.

This is an amazing place to visit. My husband and I took a day trip to explore the Fort and were so thrilled with the scenery and the historic buildings. Most of the barracks and quarters are available to rent, so we plan to make our reservations early! A word of caution: Do not chance a meal at the Lodge.... More

This was my first trip back to Ft. Rob in almost 10 years and I was reminded again what an amazing place it is. An active US Army base for over 7 decades (from the Indian Wars through WW II), the history surrounding Ft. Rob and those who served or were here at some point is staggering. This is the... More

We stayed at the main Lodge on the top floor of the building that was once a barracks built in 1909. You'll need a Nebraska State Park sticker that you can purchase at the Main Lodge. The room was small and plain, but air-conditioned. We sat out on the giant front porch most nights. The restaurant food was traditional 1970's/80's... More

We attended the art show in the old stable area on the 4th of July. Wow, the park was full of lots of RVs, tents, and people. The artists had wonderful paintings of old west, country and indian scenes, people, and for reasonable prices. The grounds were immaculate as if the soldiers were keeping it up.

Staff is phenomenal! The drive is in beautiful, there is so much history here that you could literally just waste a week discovering it all. The grounds are well kept, easily accessible, all your historical points are well laid out. Incredibly family friendly! We camped on soldier creek, near the highway, but it wasn't bad at night at all. We... More
