“expected more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

don't make a huge detour in your trip for this site - but stop if you're driving by! History here - but there is history everywhere you want to look! Wish there was more to see, but enjoyed the stop.

“not worth it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Not worth the stop. Takes more time to get there than to see it. A few restored buildings, photos, relics. Ok if you need a toilet break.

“Quaint frontier fort resting on the open plaines over looking the Platte River.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

If your into military history, this can be an interesting place. Open, overlooks the river. Post graveyard and some buildings. Hiking tour that is self guided.
