“Great place”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

All the old cabins and other stuff at the Fort Croghan was donated to them from families of Burnet County.It is free of charge to enter.
The only draw back is that they are only open in the summertime and in Oct they do have Fort Croghan days which is great,people will dress up they did in the 1800's and act the part,have games as they did back then and food too as they have back then.
