    The Bridge is 1 of few that still has water running under it. Great park area. You can also camp, for free (under 30ft limit) and NO PETS. Would have given a 5 star but no pets, u have to camp in parking lot gets a 4. I would defin stay here tho. Place was very well maintained!

    This free and very enjoyable park allows one to visit with the past while enjoying the peace and quiet of the park.

    We visited on a Sunday which meant that the cars were not open for inside viewing, however, simply walking around and reading the descriptions gives one story of these magnificent contacts to a long gone era.

    Take your time, read everything and know what it was like for those of us who are old enough to have experienced first hand the thrill of train travel.

    This free museum on the Wyoming state fairgrounds does an excellent job of telling how life for the pioneers in Wyoming was. There are military items, cowboys items, items from the home & more. All of these items were displayed with descriptions that are easy to read. If you are in Douglass you need to see this!

    Have a couple of drinks and something to eat with the good people of Douglas, at the recently restored Institution that is the College Inn Bar. Owner Jacey and her team have done an amazing job of restoring this town landmark and making it into a community watering hole again. We had such a great time, great beer, and the flatbread pizza is excellent!

    If you like wide open grasslands that are littered with critters of all types then you'll like Thunder Basin National Grasslands.

    This one building is all that is left of any army base that thrived here in WW II. It is the officer's club & the inside still has evidence of a typical officer's club. There are a few exhibits on what happened at Camp Douglass during WW II. The main function was to serve as a Prisoner of War (POW) camp for captured Italian & German soldiers in WW II. There is a 10-15 minute film that describes what happened at the camp during WWII to include the life of the POWs. Having spent 41 years in the US Army (20 on active duty) it struck me that the POWS here had it far easier than their comrades & our servicemembers who were in battle for extended periods of time. Being captured & brought to the US was by far the best thing that could have happened to them. All of this is in 1 small building that is not easy to find. If you are going to be in Douglass anyway, stop by. But don't make a special trip to town for this attraction.

    We enjoyed our visit here. The exhibits were well done and the two staff quite knowledgeable. There are not really that many buildings to see, although there are plenty of ruins, but there are nice trails around the fort site to walk about and the view of the river is nice. I would recommend it as a place tp learn little and get a little walk in.

    If your interested in the history of this country this is an amazing look back. The wagon wheels of the Pioneers that went west have left rut in the rock that can still be seen today. There is so much history to share the this area of Wyoming. I've been visiting this area for 30 years and feel like it's my second home.

    This facility is only a few years old and it is very nice. They have things for all ages. Computers, games, legos, books and books and more books (it is a library so...)

    we took a chance to play 9 on our National Park tour from the Grand Tetons to Mount Rushmore. Since we had our clubs with us we picked Douglas to stop. Had a great time would have liked to play 18!! Course was in great shape and challenging but fair for both myself and my wife. Had some interesting holes with sloped fairways doglegs greens were true even though they had been recently aerated. Loved our experience!!
    Only criticism was no senior rate ($28 each to play 9) but I guess that common in the west

    My wife spotted the interesting store front of this place and uncharacteristically said, "let's pop in for a drink before dinner". AM I glad she did! It is a quaint, colorful, and authentic western saloon run by a couple who are warm, friendly, and very conversational. Ironically, we dropped in on the very day they listed the place for sale! I surely hope they find a buyer who will retain its charm and ambience, and broad selection of adult beverages. Diane even made several recommendations for dining, attractions, etc for the rest of our trip, which we followed up on gratefully. it was a fun hour and whether you're thirsty or not, if in Douglas, drop in!

    Classiest bowling alley I've ever been to. Amazing drinks and fun for the whole family. Video games, pool table, darts, shuffle board. Beautiful clean restrooms and delicious Moscow Mules. Will definitely be back.

    will be a wonderful experience. This small town, and I hope it stays small, is unique in the way that they put out a little calendar that sits in most public places that tells of the activities, and they are varied, of that month for all to share in..Douglas is a pretty town but as it grows, oil/gas comes in...that will be diminished...the people are friendly but not as they were say 15 years ago where smiles were there on most everyone.
