Wilderness Road State Park, Ewing

(30+ reviews on the web)
Playground
The park is about 310 acres that lie astride the Wilderness Road, a route carved by Daniel Boone in 1775. The route, which followed a buffalo trace, opened America’s first western frontier. Most notable in the park are the Karlan Mansion built in the 1877, a state-of-the-art visitor center and Martin's Station, a replica of a colonial frontier fort that was near this site in 1775.

  • So, this is a hard one to review. We were here before the season so there was no living history in the fort which is the main attraction. We knew this in advance. Nonetheless, we thought the film was ...  more »

  • They have Buffalo! However, that's about it. There is a nice little fort and park area and parking is pricey. Small one trail hiking, not much but a nice little find.
  • Loved the cabins and able to walk around and see how people in the area used to live. The staff and reenactors were friendly and informative!
  • There were some cool things there, a short hiking trail, a pioneer village, and buffalo. They do charge a low fee of a few bucks for parking, but there is enough to see and do to make it worth it.
  • We traveled several hours to visit this park. According to the website it opens at 8 we arrived at 10. They charged us to enter. We went to visitors center/gift shop. We asked about the movie and was told it was broke. We shopped for a few minutes and went to visit the fort and was told there were no employees so no live scenes. Without the live scenes it is just empty buildings. What a waste of a trip. CALL before you go since while they are open they are not up and running.
  • Our friends and I enjoyed our visit very much . The Rangers and guide at the fort were very nice and helpful. Can't wait to visit again in the spring. Can't wait to hike the trails.
