It's always neat to step into the past! We've been to this fort many, many times and enjoy it every time. Especially during Memorial Day. This year we got to reenact. Lot of fun!

The blacksmiths are AWESOME!!! Picked vegetables from the garden! The video was good and informative! The bookstore could have had a few more things, very basic compared to other small parks! Great depictions on the way life was at the fort!

I was only the third one there the day I visited and one of the rangers met me on the sidewalk. Very interesting place to go to for a windy walk.
