We took a few minutes to detour from our Rapid City trip. Museum, cafe and everything was closed, but we bought our park ticket and drove through. The lady that we bought the park ticket from gave us a map to show where Crazy Horse was killed. It would be the perfect place in summer if you were into outdoors,... More

My love of history took me to Fort Robinson from St. Louis some thirty years ago as a member of a horse cavalry reenactment unit. I've been to many such sights; Ft. Larned, Ft. Riley, Ft. Leavenworth, Ft. Scott-I could go on. Fort Robinson offers the opportunity to experience the old Frontier Army days in a manner that few other... More

Enjoed our quick visit to Fort Robinson, a really nice place to spend an afternoon, which left us wanting to stay a longer. A lovely museum and monument to Crazy Horse who was sadly killed here.

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

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.
