Stay in a modern campground, rustic tent camping or one of the original adobe homes built by the Buffalo Soldiers for the fort officers. Enjoy the peaceful and... More

We loved the park and surrounding areas. Scenery is outstanding to us. We took the jeep ride and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great vistas; saw buffalo but not mountain sheep. An evening rodeo was free, and we came away very satisfied with it. The sunset that evening was gorgeous. A great place for families!

We recently visited the Fort to view the historical site. I was very happy with the information provided and the quality of the buildings. It is now a state park and looks to be utilized quite well. The fort is devided into the original post from the 1870's and the newer 20th century installation that was used into WW 2.... More

Our extended family from age 4 to 79 all enjoyed our trip immensely with something fun to do for everyone - hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, horseback riding, stagecoach rides and learning about the loads of history of this special place. We stayed in the newest "cabin" - one of the officers quarters. It was beautiful, roomy, clean and the air... More

My husband and I used to take our children camping here years ago--now we return as empty nesters. Just got home from an overnight stay and this trip we stayed in the Lodge. Our room was simple, clean, and the AC worked great. Loved having adirondack chairs right outside our room to enjoy the peaceful beauty of the park (plus... More

My husband and I went to the fort expecting to see a very important historic location. Instead it was like an amusement park and the Nebraska Parks Dept. should be ashamed of themselves. The entire fort should have been preserved for the significance it played during the Indian wars, not just allowing the historical society to have 3 or 4... More

We recently returned to Fort Robinson since our visit 4 years ago. The park was as clean, very well kept and accommodating as it was on our first visit. Lots of things to see and do around the park very relaxing and well shaded. The pool is kept at a nice comfortable temperature. Found they could be a little clearer... More

I love this park. It is so beautiful and peaceful. The surrounding landscape takes you back in time. I think of all the people that have come before me. Humans may have been here as far back as 9000 years ago.

Thank Mary C
