Fort Robinson State Park protects an old Army Post that was used for many years. Many of the buildings are still standing, but you can only access certain ones. The Fort Robinson Museum is a small extra fee, but worth it to see the exhibits. There are other building open to the public for free, and they have many exhibits,... More

The park itself has a lot of interesting things to see. My kids really enjoyed the mammoth museum. But I do not recommend camping here. It was expensive for hook ups and the shower house is really far away. For the price we should have a bathroom and shower house in our camping loop!

Fort Robinson has served many functions over its lifetime. Once a military outpost during the Indian wars, it is now a state park. Fort Robinson is located in the Pine Ridge region of the Nebraska panhandle. The fort is one of the most popular parks in the state. It has more than 22,000 acres of scenery. People can rent cabins... More

Infamous for killing Crazy Horse ( Custer's last Stand Fame). US Army solider shot him in the back while in custody. Other facilities on site including museums, stables and exhibits, Short stop, but interesting. It was also horse training facility for the US Army. It was also a chance to get a slight feel for the Great State of Nebraska.

We really enjoyed our time at Fort Robinson. I possibly would give this place a 5-star rating, but we were unable to do some of the stuff because they weren't busy enough, which was sort of disappointing. Maybe they would've been busier a couple weeks earlier. We were there the day school started for the area, so attendance was down.... More

I have been trying to get here for years and thankfully, finally made it! Staying at the old officers quarters was amazing and you could almost imagine the trials and tribulations of the Army personnel stationed out west during the 1860s. There is plenty to do at the fort and is a great place from which to adventure from! The... More

We camped for a few nights in the campground and really enjoyed our stay. There were way too many flies (had to eat inside, not at picnic tables) and the grass is full of stickers, but that didnt stop us from having a great time at all. The history is neat, and we enjoyed the history museum. We were there... More

What a great little find! Came to tent camp for a stopover enroute to the Black Hills, and stayed for the activities! Great front porch to sit, lots of history at the museum and in the buildings, amazing that you can rent them out. There were lots of family reunions going on yet space/crowd was not an issue. The campground... More

The food was good, the price what one should expect. However, when the wait staff began using fly swatters to bash their enemies right in the middle of the breakfast buffet table, i could not finish my meal. Flies also met their demise on empty tables which failed to be sanitized after. Upon reporting this to the front desk, i... More

Once again, I am in awe of the talents shown at the 9-5 show we had the privilege to attend last night. Dealing with a small venue and low budget this group of very talented young people put on a incredible fun show. . We attended a performance last year and was impressed, but I really think this one was... More
