We went with several family members in July 2015. We stayed in the duplex houses, while others camped or stayed in the RV park. We had a good time. There were lots of activities, and the family did arts, went for a jeep ride, had a horse ride, looked at the museum, went swimming, and rented bikes. The duplex was... More

Fort Robinson was dripping with history. Unfortunately we were there outside the tourist season in mid - late November, however it was still worth a visit. There is lots of information boards around the area to read, we also had a American friend with us who knew quite a bit about the place as she had visited there before. Take... More

Beautiful original and restored buildings, mostly inaccessible and limited to outside viewing but still great examples of late 19th century American military frontier architecture. The museum and displays are dated and incessantly reverent historical mythologizing of white settlement in western Nebraska that largely ignores Native American history and the criminal acts perpetrated on its grounds are largely brushed off and...

Given that Fort Robinson played such an important role during western settlement and the Indian Wars, and that so many of its historic structures have survived to the present, a strong argument can be made for adding the site to our National Park System. As it is, state park status insures that it gets little national publicity and it hasn’t... More

If it only had updated bathrooms I wouldn't have hesitated to give it a top rating. Restaurant is great, all the buildings are so interesting.

Old military installation full of beautifully restored buildings. This is nestled at the base of the hills of western Nebraska. As you walk around, you get the feeling of the wild west here. Well worth the time to visit if you are into history.

I cannot get enough of this place. Great scenery, very friendly locals, awesome food in the summertime and my favorite, the absolute peace and quiet at night! We love going to the 2 museums, never gets boring. Walking around the fort is magical, so much to see and do. We have been here twice and still haven't seen every thing... More

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
