The tracks are actually there

We got there late, ten minutes left in the day, so we didn't pay the extra two bucks for the video and museum. I'd have liked to, but it had already cost us $5 for a park sticker... read more

We got there late, ten minutes left in the day, so we didn't pay the extra two bucks for the video and museum. I'd have liked to, but it had already cost us $5 for a park sticker and we wouldn't have had much time in the museum. That having been said, I loved the place. I'd always heard that... More

Having heard about all the new improvements and recent additions to Rock Creek Station since I had been there in the 80's we decided to spend the afternoon at the State Park and share some of the local history with my daughter. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many improvements and additions to the facility and historical buildings. The... More

Second stop on out central plains states road trip. This is actually a state park so there is a small daily fee and a fee for the museum (which IS worth visiting). This site is along the Oregon Trail - you can see the ruts - and was a pony express station. A short walk from the center gets you... More

Our family absolutely loved going to Rock Creek Station. We camped there for the weekend and it was a beautiful setting. Gorgeous established trees, paved roads, dump station and great hiking trails. The visitor center and ranches are full of history and interesting facts about Wild Bill and the famous shootout. The staff was great and it was a fun... More

This place is off the beaten path & a bit tricky to find. We arrived at 4:00 & were the last visitors of the day. $5 gets you a state park vehicle pass & for $2 each you see a 10 minute movie on the history of Rock Creek Station and a visit to the museum. Well worth the cost.... More

Can't say enough about this place. Wonderful historic significance, great camping, great hiking, well maintained. The road forks left middle or right, left goes to hiking and historic areas, middle goes to a great building with historic information to tour and right goes to a wonderful camping spot for RVs or primitive with great playground and bathrooms/showers. Definitely a gem.

Beautiful center with accounts about Rock Creek as a road ranch, Pony Express station and the site of the Hickok-McCanles affair. Bring a picnic lunch and take time to explore the grounds.
