Riding through the area and stopped in for a visit. Small, but nice visitor center where you can learn some history of the site and pick up a walking tour brochure. The walking tour takes you around the scenic grounds and explains about the structures. There are picnic spots if you want to eat, but nothing available on site. It's too bad one of the main structures was destroyed by vandals, but enough remains to visualize what it was like to live there. Other structures as well. I would allow a few hours.

Wonderful stories, appropriate for family with older elementary kids and older. Evweyone was friendly and did a great job. My son is begging to come back next year. Was worth the 3 hour one way drive to go. Hidden gem in SE Oklahoma.

Lots of interesting history about native american tribes, civil war and California gold rush. Some structures left. We found all the ones listed on the map. The map is a little hard to follow. The docent at the visitors center was very informative.

Actually very little of the Fort remains. The barracks burned a few years ago and only the walls still stand. For history buffs still a great place to go
