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.
The State Historical Society operates a museum and many restored or reconstructed exhibit buildings to interpret the Fort’s history. Visit the new exhibit The Clash of the Mammoths at the Trailside Museum of Natural History. A fossil find unlike any other in the world! The University of Nebraska operates the Trailside Museum which interprets the geology and natural history of the region.
There are many ways to spend a day at the fort. First on the agenda should be a ride on the horse drawn tour to get acquainted with this unique park. Enjoy a refreshing Pine Ridge morning on horseback, an open-air Jeep ride among the buttes, or one of the popular nature tours aboard the Fort Robinson Express. When the day warms up, head for the indoor Lindeken Pool, complete with outdoor wading pool and sun deck.
