  • It must stop on this site if you spend in Wyoming; It's like at the time of the civil war. everything is restored in each room and each room has its own history. the sound of the trumpet every 30 minutes! The Southerner in costume who visit; There is the building of officers, of the Cavalry, the guard post. The visit is done on foot and we can cross bunnies in the fields not at all frightened!

  • On the go at a supermarket, we asked what there en route to interrupt the trip was fun, maybe we were referred to Fort Laramie. Once knocked off of route and follow the signs we still doubted (very far vd route). But glad we did, was very quiet but came on a neatly restored site with several restored houses decorated like it used to. Supplemented with original photos. Nice to have seen!

  • We enjoyed stopping at Fort Laramie which has a visitors center and we took advantage of the self-guided tour. They are working and restoration of the site and it's easy to imagine the old west and th...  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.
