“Quiet History”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Not much happening at the site, but the kids enjoyed running around the Fort and there is something to learn. There are opportunities nearby for camping, fishing, eating (Ft Gibson and Muskogee), etc. The right time of year would make this a better excursion, I would prefer the fall or spring. The Batfish Submarine memorial is close enough to double the learning and adventure for the kids.

“Its nice and informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

It has nice historical value and its basically located out there near Porter, Wagnor not in Tulsa like in the country. Driving there is fabulous I love the scenic view and the recreational areas they have at a near park.
