“following the Oregon Trail”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

I followed the Oregon Trail and so in the process visited this fort. It's not the most elaborate thing in the world, but certainly worth stopping by. This was a Pony Express station, too, if I'm not mistaken.

“All spruced up for the 50th anniversary”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We visited the Fort and Museum with low expectations based on a couple of reviews here, but were pleasantly surprised with the fort, it's layout and attention to detail. I suppose if you were a local it might not impress, but being "from away" and just having seen the Lewis and Clark fort in Oregon I think this is a great replica. The physical condition of the exterior and interior is excellent. The exhibits within each area: blacksmith, meat room, trading room, officer's area are all well done and feature items within each room that match the era. Outside the fort are buffalo and elk. Then across the field is the replica of the old town with school, church, saloon, and other buildings...all in great shape. Then, to complete the package, is the Museum which features a wonderful history of the area. $4 did not ruin my budget for all of this terrific history. Bring the kids to see the covered wagons and the fire engine and let them see how people lived back in the day.This is a class attraction, but take the time to READ as you go; otherwise you may feel disappointed.

“A great way to feel connected to history.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I still keep very fond memories of my visit to this fun place in 2007. What fun to ramble around, poking our noses into the rooms, reading about the fur trade and daydreaming. Must go again soon.

“Not impressed!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

they should have a lot more things to show and prices are way to high for what you see.
