I stopped here several times while traveling through the area on business trips. The first time was purely by accident just to get a travel break. But then I planned subsequent stops here as a good place to take a lunch break and stretch my legs. The remnants of the fort are interesting, but be sure to stop and view the cemetery and caretaker's house to gain more insights of what this place was like years ago.

It's a great spot to relax from driving thru Wyoming, especially in the winter. It's well stocked and likely the best unmanned rest spot I've even been to. Kids and pets can run around. They had highway maps and notices posted. Take a break and enjoy the countryside.

We took some time from our drive to stretch our legs at this state historic site. Very well presented. A lot of information available. Would be a destination for someone wanting to learn of the early area and the encounters with the Native Americans many years ago

This unknown landmark is a post Civil War railroad fort that is worth a visit only if you are in the area, do not spend too much time or veer from your planned route to visit. The site is unmanned, the plaques provide a decent explanation of individual sites and persons. It is not possible to enter the buildings, that said, the site is evocative of what frontier life must have been between the Civil War and the turn of the century. Wikipedia has a pretty thorough description of the fort. My recommendation – visit if you are in the area, don’t spend too much time going out of your way for Fort Steele.

Almost all the buildings are gone, but there are a few that remain and you can see where they use to stand. It's hard to imagine what it must have looked like when the buildings were all still there. As the train goes by, it makes you wonder what they had to do back then to protect the trains and their content.
