  • This is a place to visit and do things like the swimming pool. It's water comes f a fresh water spring and if you want to cool off the is the place. Then if you feel like eating there are places on the Fort and just a few minutes away in town. There's also things to do like fishing in our creeks and see all the wildlife. There are even trails for hiking and golf carts. Lots more !
  • Good place for hunting trips. I shot my first axis deer there
  • I went here to see the historic fort and learn more about it. It had an amazing history. However, I discovered that their museum is only open for a few hours on Saturday afternoons and the historic buildings are used as private residences. This place neither honors its legacy or would be a nice place to live. It looked so cheap and disgraceful. I drove around the tennis courts and saw grass growing up through cracks in the concrete. Pathetic. Maybe they have a good swimming hole for locals. But, I wouldn't take my dog for a walk there. Here are a few photos as an attempt to honor its history. Very disappointing.
  • Rooms should have vanity in bathroom and better lighting. Would be nice if there was another choice of place to eat on fort.
  • The hotel is kept in poor condition. Would be a great place if they put money back into the hotel
