Been a long time since I have been there, but I have visited a few times and love the preservation of the local history.

There are only 2 buildings left standing of this frontier fort (1867-1882) to protect pioneers along Bozeman Trail and then supply US military during the Indian War campaigns. But the experience was enhanced greatly by Mike at the small museum, who went out of his way to make us feel welcome and share his knowledge of and enthusiasm for this... More

Not worth the stop. Takes more time to get there than to see it. A few restored buildings, photos, relics. Ok if you need a toilet break.

If your into military history, this can be an interesting place. Open, overlooks the river. Post graveyard and some buildings. Hiking tour that is self guided.

Upon arrival around eight o'clock in the morning, I found the road into the area of the fort barred by a heavy metal gate. There was no sign indicating visiting hours, so after a few minutes I ducked under the gate and walked uphill into the fort site. The area was quite disappointing, the roads being unpaved and the only... More

..stopped by here on my way to SD - the KOA advised us there wasn't much here, but it was worth the visit. It's just too bad that the state hasn't restored this fort. All the buildings are gone except for 2. They're been restored, but the place does have that eerie feel to it like a lot went on... More
