We stayed in cabin L10 for two nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet tremendously. The cabin was large--three bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and bath--and the park was lovely. There were two negatives: everything, and I mean everything, cost extra and the trail ride was terrible. First, when I pay to rent a cabin in a state park, I do... More

We only stopped here at the "Trailside Museum of Natural History" because the Stagecoach Museum in Lusk, Wy was closed and we had a little extra time, and were surprised at how "good" it was. It's basically just one not-real-big room devoted to the many fossils found in Nebraska. That includes one huge mammoth skeleton in the center, and two... More

Lodging is in buildings of various types from the historical fort, which was originally built during the Indian Wars. Since then the Fort was used to train dogs and horses and even detain some German Prisoners of War. There are two places to eat on the Fort, both tasty and fun. A variety of activities such as horseback riding, jeep... More

We stayed one night and had a couple of days to experience the attractions offered at Fort Robinson. We experienced an authentic stage coach ride through some nice western countryside and a longer horseback ride through a little more rugged western country. We'd booked an evening chuckwagon steak feed in the butte country surrounding the fort but it was cancelled... More

There is so much to do at Fort Robinson State Park. This is my second visit to the park. The first time I went on a jeep ride into the bluffs and went on a stage coach ride around the grounds of the park. There are also trail rides and you can bring your own horses since you can rent... More

To start, I'll be honest: I'm biased in loving the Fort because I have family ties to it and the area. Over the years I've made many trips to the Fort/Harrison/Crawford for family reunions and I'll just say that from age 4 to 28 I've never been disappointed in traveling all the way from North Carolina to visit. There is... More

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.
