    History and a Neat Museum

    by Basaic Written Oct 22, 2013

    Favorite thing: Fort Robinson State Park is considered by many to be the premier park in Western Nebraska. It is named for Fort Robinson a former U.S. Army Post but has much more than the fort to attract tourists. Fort Robinson was in service during the Indian Wars and was the site of the Cheyenne Outbreak in 1879. It was here that the great Sioux War Chief Crazy Horse died. The camp was active until after WW2. In addition to the fort there is a fine museum here with great displays of a huge mastodon, other fossils and bones and the history of the area. There are cabins for rent, campsites, and most any recreational activity you can think of, along with 22,000 beautiful acres to explore.

    Fondest memory: The history of the fort, the beauty of the area, and the interesting geological and paleontological displays in the museum.
