  • Fort Laramie was in the 19th century an important place in American history. The main buildings of the fort were reconstructed and restored to be presented to the public objects to time. The Visitor Center is full of information and documentation on the history of this mythical place. Take the time to visit everything. The place is super neat and amazing clean counts the number of visitors who have to go. Not only is it interesting to stop but it is totally worth the detour. At the end of visit there is a part of the park outside, equipped with tables and bans; ideal for a picnic in the shade!

  • I went to this site on purpose. It was a planned stop on my way from Keystone (SD) to York (NE). Since I was so close to Wyoming I wanted to go there and check out a site that was worth visiting. So I...  more »

  • We loved visiting Fort Laramie. We arrived before the Visitor Center opened, but a maintenance ranger was very helpful and got us started exploring. My daughter loved the Junior Ranger program, which was really cool in that it encouraged Junior Rangers to explore both Fort Laramie and nearby Guernsey State Park, picking up two Junior Ranger badges and a collectible coin as well. Definitely worth exploring while on a road trip across Wyoming.
  • My husband and I had our first date here and 16 months later our wedding! I love it here! The history is rich, the nearby town is small, but everyone there has HUGE hearts!!
  • a heck of a lot bigger than I thought it would be. very very cool.
  • This is an outstanding place for a family or individual visit. Fort Laramie has a rich history that spans the eras of the Plains Indians, the Fur Trade, the Oregon & California migration trails, and the frontier Army. The National Park Service has done a great job of preserving and interpreting the site .In addition to the fort's buildings and historical interpretation, you're within a few miles of visiting the Register Cliff (where emigrants carved their names over 150 years ago) and the Oregon Trail Ruts, where the wheels of the wagons cut deeply into the limestone formations along the river. NPS staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. Frequently there are reenactors, speakers, and musicians to help bring the Oregon Trail back to life. There's a great gift shop/bookstore, and the old saloon still serves root beer and sarsaparilla to quench your thirst. The nearby towns of Fort Laramie, Guernsey, and Torrington have friendly folks, good restaurants, and ample lodging. Do NOT miss this milestone in American history!
  • Fascinating place with very knowledgeable staff.
