  • Very well educated, friendly and helpful staff. Amazing history which not many Americans know about. Excellent book selection relative to the fort, the Vinegar Trail, the era in America and the Plains Indians. We'll thought out displays inside and outside the interpretive center including the fort grounds, Fetterman battle ridge and the Wagon Box Fight location. We'll worth your time.
  • Historic site. Much has fallen down around the original foot print of the surrounding walls. But you can still see where it all was and invasion it in its heyday.
  • I loved that there is still a wooden surround to make it historic and really looked like the sort of fort I expected. The information guides were amazing. And very knowledgeable and it was an amazing experience. I never tire of history, historic locations or battlefields.
  • This monument to an old US Army fort has no walls, but is a poignant reminder of our pioneer history, and why the "Bloody Bozeman" was such a contested trail. Fine place to learn Western history, enjoy dark skies, or enjoy some fine scenery.
  • Beautiful landscape, uncrowded, friendly staff. Opens your imagination to the past.
