  • Really enjoyed. I love reading books about the western migration and it was great to get to see where some of it happened. There is an audio tour you can do for $3 per person that takes about 1-1/2 hours but we decided just to use the map and read the signs. It was lunch time and getting hot. Would definitely recommend.
  • This National Park was very interesting. The visitor's center has fascinating displays about life on the old frontier. The restored buildings gave us a good idea of what the soldiers were dealing with to do their jobs. We enjoyed the Ranger's talk about the buglers.
