  • Great place to take a step back. Be prepared to walk. Ground is level but builds are not handicap accessible. There are several displays and the staff is very good at explaining the displays. Very friendly and helpful.
  • This fort has a lot to offer, including a large museum in the visitor center, and faithful recreations of the interiors of most of the buildings present on the site. Most are fully furnished with period correct furniture and personal effects that really give you a great look at how the soldiers and others stationed at this fort lived. The buildings are made of a soft sandy stone, and it was interesting to look at the signatures and other marks made by previous visitors, many of which were well over 100 years old. If you can tune out the various farm buildings and other modern things that are present on the horizon, it's easy enough to imagine how lonely this place would have been when it was being used as a home for the soldiers who protected the US Mail on its way across the plains.
  • This place is awesome! Fort was well stocked with period items and the entire fort was well maintained. This place is a must see.
  • This place is great for families and anyone else who likes history. You can see the officers quarters, barracks, hospital, bread bakery, leather working, blacksmith, and other buildings. This place is a fun place for anyone wanting to study history, or just have fun.
  • Great place. Spent a couple of hours and had fun with the kids. Really enjoyed the history.
