  • It was the most friendly, peaceful place I have been to in years. They we're so nice and welcoming, more so than any other place I have been. They work very hard to get things done and always have a kind word and help you with anything including teaching and learning new information on the history of the area. The trail riders, and hosts are keen and friendly; always willing to share their knowledge whether it history, riding a horse and even learning the ropes again to those who have not been able to get on a horse in a while. Their friendship and kindness are beyond compare and apparently they have a long history being great friends and support to so many people over the years. I would recommend this place to anyone that needs to just get away and relax in a quiet place that is beautifully set back in time.
  • Lots of history here. Came to learn about my family history and learned a lot about my ancestors. My great grandmother was a Parker. Stay two night in the barracks. Very peaceful here. Staff was most helpful.
  • Christmas at the Fort is amazing and so much fun. Our scout loving camping here and enjoy the festivities!
  • Have visited here off and on my whole life. Peaceful visit to the past. Small gift shop.
  • Not a bad place, it needs some love but the kids had a good time. Worth the stop.
