don't make a huge detour in your trip for this site - but stop if you're driving by! History here - but there is history everywhere you want to look! Wish there was more to see, but enjoyed the stop.

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.
