Fort Robinson State Park


Western Nebraska's premier state park, Fort Robinson, west of Crawford, has it all -- with more than 22,000 acres of exquisite Pine Ridge scenery, compelling old west history, exceptional lodging, loads of fun-time activities, scenic camping and the park's own buffalo and longhorn herds.

This historic outpost served from the days of the Indian Wars until after World War II. This was the site of the 1879 Cheyenne Outbreak and the death of famed Sioux Chief Crazy Horse. Over the years, the fort served the Red Cloud Indian Agency, as a cavalry remount station, K-9 dog training center, POW camp and beef research station.

What a gem! The Jeep ride to the bluffs is a must and the history is fascinating. The park does a good job of preserving the historical aspects of the park. The food and service at the restaurant was excellent and staff friendly and helpful. The only complaint was that we tent camped and that section of the campground is extremely close to a highway.

Best-kept secret family vacation place in the whole country. Friendliest, most helpful staff. Lodge rooms very small--remember they're over 100 years old. Book officers quarters for more space. Lovely front-porch atmosphere. Lots of activities for kids of all ages. And don't miss the Lodge restaurant; you can't leave until you've had the buffalo burger.

Fort Robunson has a lot more to offer than what one can find on their website. Kayaking the White River is more fun than what the little stream would let on. The Post Playhouse is great. Hiking, horseback riding, learning the history of how the government mistreated the Sioux and Cheyenne, lawn games with family.
