  • The lady at the front desk was super nice and even took a picture for us, but the park itself was just kind of underwhelming. The museum is only one room, yet you have to pay an $8 parking fee on top of $2 admission. Almost all of the buildings are completely gone and are just marked out foundations in the grass. If it hadn't been so expensive, it would have been kind of cute. But it's really just not worth the price.
  • If you're traveling in an RV this is a great place to camp around many small lakes. And you can also learn about the history of the fort within a couple of miles of the campground. Staff were very helpful the campground was very clean. And one more nice feature if you have children the campground has bicycles to borrow to ride around the camp which is very large. $23 for primitive no hookups, 33 for electric + 38 for Water and Electric, and oh did I mention it's a beautiful Campground surrounded by Nature and fishing is available in many of the ponds
