    It was close to 100 degrees this day, no shade to park your car. But it was well worth the drive here. They have great signage to get you there. They have a nice layout of the original fort in the 185...  more »

    This is a fantastic piece of history. Pack up the family and take the long drive to the park. Be sure and pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the grounds. Beautifully maintained.  more »

    this was interesting but not really very exciting. But, for history buffs it is a great stop. The surrounding area has some 8000 wild horses so you might see some in dryer weather coming in for water....  more »

    Great Park. Lots of tables for sitting, plenty of area to walk around and some cool historical buildings to check out as well.

    Beautiful! Just unable to enjoy a Desert Park that close to home anymore. Wish we could have enjoyed it longer, we were aggressively encouraged to vacate early by Bees. I didn't notice the humming from the tree's until they started to land on me. I got the girls calmly back into the car and on our way without any great pictures or getting to explore this beautiful Park. Oh yeah there's a ⚠ Black Bear warning ⚠ posted at the entrance.... Hummm.... I gotta wonder why... 🐝

    A bit out of the way, but an interesting look at a restored 19th century Army settlement. The buildings are mostly open and allow you to see inside. Nice small museum on site to give a little bit of the history.
