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.

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.

One of my all time favorite places to visit! We rent the big brick houses with my whole family. It's so beautiful, relaxing and convenient. So many things to do here and nearby. Toadstool park is also always a favorite.

We are 40 states into our tour of the entire US. I have found unexpected beauty and value everywhere. People have been awesome.... until here. Sorry Nebraska, maybe there are great people and places here, but I can’t wait to leave, and I just got here.
