  • What a lovely state Park, lots of history. Well kept and clean. They have a nice campground near by as well, lots of large sites for big 5th wheelers. Would go back here again

  • My family has been coming here since before I was born, around 50 years or so. While Covid seems to have put a damper on some of the services, it is still a stellar place to visit. Best if you stay...

  • We had a great time at Fort Rob. There is a nice swimming pool, bathrooms were kept clean Bring quarters to pay for the campground showers (about $4.50 for a decent length). There are many things to see and do: museums, historical markers, cows, amazing sunsets, stars at night, buffalo, stage coach rides, bicycle rentals, rodeo... Though small, the Thursday night rodeo is highly recommended. They put on an entertaining show and offer pull-behind hide rides for littles after the show!
  • This is not only a wonderful campground, it is a wonderful destination. You could easily fill 3 or 4 days with activities in the state park or immediate vicinity. Everything you need is within easy walking or biking distance. We camped in Red Cloud. The campground was wonderful - concrete site, perfectly level, full hook ups, we had a picnic table and a grill. sites are spacious. The only complaint I had was no shade, although the older sites in the middle of the campground are shaded. The Spotted Tail campground is more shady, and sites there have electric only. There are numerous activities on the fort, and lots of family reunions were happening here. In addition to the campgrounds, you can rent most of the old officer quarters and barracks. I recommend taking the train tour on your first day. In addition to telling the history of the fort, you'll also learn about the other activities and what buildings are open for visiting. It will help you plan the rest of your visit. The jeep tour is very fun, and very adventurous. The museums are interesting. We didn't get to see a play because we waited too long to buy tickets, but I understand that the plays at the Post Playhouse are phenomenal. We did the Haystack Steak Cookout which was fun - riding a hay wagon up to the Cheyenne Butte and eating a steak dinner open air in a beautiful setting. The restaurant is unexpectedly wonderful. You could have all meals there and not cook at all if you want.
