At 22,000 acres, this is the largest state park in Nebraska. Formerly an active military post, Fort Robinson is now a popular destination for outdoor, recreational enthusiasts and history buffs. The park offers some of the most beautiful scenery in the West and visitors can enjoy learning about Old West history, hiking and biking, camping, great lodging, and sights of buffalo and longhorn cattle herds.
Get acquainted with the park by taking a ride in a horse-drawn wagon, or enjoy the open air on horseback. If you’re feeling more adventurous, tour the buttes in an open-top Jeep. On the popular Fort Robinson Express, visitors can experience that way pioneers and settlers traveled a century ago—by stagecoach.
In the afternoon, guests can enjoy a cool swim indoors in the Lindeken Pool, which also has an outdoor wading pool and sundeck. Fishing is available at Soldier Creek or in any of the open ponds. Nebraska history is well-preserved in the many historic buildings at the Fort—the 1887 Adobe Officers’ Quarters, 1906 Blacksmith Shop, POW Camp, and Cheyenne Outbreak Barracks.
Evening activities include rodeo games, special shows at the Post Playhouse, and the Chuckwagon Buffalo Stew Cookout with campfire sing-alongs. The Fort Robinson Inn serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily during the summer season.
