We stayed in the Comanche Hall and our room was infested with mice. We bought mouse traps and caught 5 within 8 hours. I would not recommend this place to stay unless you don't mind hearing mice scurrying around on the floor throughout the night.

They have a new chef, the food is great. The pork chops were simply wonderful and the chicken salad is the best I have ever eaten. Normally the buffet is average but not this year. Everything was fresh and very well done from the scalloped potatoes to the salad bar.

Fort Robinson is a perfect location for an overnight. After sleeping near Souix City at Poncha State Park, I wanted to take a slow, scenic route across Nebraska to Wyoming and Colorado. The I-90 and I-80 routes are faster, but fairly boring. Fort Robinson was exactly the right number of hours from Poncha to Crawford for a full day of... More

You can climb the buttes or ride a horse to an impressive view. If you choose to hike you'll probably have the trail to yourself.

We did a day trip before the high season kicked off. We were hoping to learn more about the relations between Native Americans and the U.S. military, but there just wasn't much depth there. Just what you can learn In a pamphlet. It was even light on information about Crazy Horse. If you're a history buff, you may want to... More

Our extended family of four generations rented one of the brick officers' quarters at Fort Robinson for five nights, and wish we'd stayed at least a week. As other reviewers have written, there's plenty to do at the fort--jeep tours, horseback rides, fishing, swimming, etc. Instead of writing about the many great activities, I'll focus on some details that future...

1. Hiking - climbing the bluffs, such as Red Cloud Bluffs, is a 5 mile hike that leads to some beautiful views of the river valleys. 2. History - You can spend the night in the historic buildings! You can hear about the good and bad things that happened in the fort. 3. Horses - While not for me, it's... More

Very interesting old military fort in use from the Indian battles through WW II when & where dogs were trained. Self driving tour, walking and hiking tours available, with a wildlife park. Lodging and camping facilities on location, including equestrian facilities.
