For some reason it's not what I expected. Plenty of mementos scattered around the grave: Cigarettes, lighters, some change, other odd items. In an unimpressive place, difficult to find.

This is a very good place for a visit. You can come in from Fort Sill Army Barracks or Mt Witchita. We came in from the barracks, they will search your car and then you can visit the museum -free and see heaps of army vehicles and guns etc out in the open. You then drive on past rifle training...

I've only been in Edmond OK for two months and wanted to explore some of the richness the state has to offer. When I mentioned that I was thinking of traveling West someone suggested I go to Fort Sill in Lawton and vist Geronimo's grave. Once you get to Fort Sill, and get your pass to come on base you...

Whatever you do--Do NOT use GPS directions from within Ft Sill to Elgin Road. It will take you down a very rutted dirt road with recent rains. No way to turn around without getting stuck unless 4 wheel drive. Luckily we were in a small truck and still made it thru. Ask directions at front gate. On way back we... More

A friend of mine took us while visiting so I really didn't know what to expect. If you are into history this is great but I can say from my kids stand point they really weren't impressed. I can say it was kinda Erie to see it in person & I got a very uneasy feeling the minute I walked... More

Geronimo's grave is in the cemetary at Fort Sill. If you are interested in cemeteries, I found this one quite interesting. There are info plagues about the native Americans who lived and worked at Fort Sill. Geronimo was a great leader that is part of every American's history. It only takes a few minutes to stop here and recognize his... More

Geronimo is one of the most famous figures in American History. Many years ago, I had the privilege of visiting his grave. Since my wife and I were traveling through Lawton, we decided to stop and visit the grave site. I live on the Navajo Nation and have done so since 1996. Many Navajos I know respect Geronimo and consider... More

I am not that into history but my husband loves things like this. Interesting to read all the headstones. Takes longer to get there than the actual tour of the site. But I can now say I have been to Geronimo's grave.

When my son was graduating basic training at Fort Sill, I asked him to get the directions to Geronimo's grave. The grave and the rest of the Apache cemetery are fairly remote, but not difficult to find. We visited in July, when the tree shading the site was bright with the scarves people tie there, and move beautifully in the... More
