Western Nebraska's premier state park, Fort Robinson, west of Crawford, has it all -- with more than 22,000 acres of exquisite Pine Ridge scenery, compelling old west history, exceptional lodging, loads of fun-time activities, scenic camping and the park's own buffalo and longhorn herds. This historic outpost served from the days of the Indian Wars until after World War II. This was the site of the 1879 Cheyenne Outbreak and the death of famed Sioux Chief Crazy Horse. Over the years, the fort served the Red Cloud Indian Agency, as a cavalry remount station, K-9 dog training center, POW camp and beef research station. The State Historical Society operates a museum and many restored or reconstructed exhibit buildings to interpret the Fort's history. Visit the new exhibit The Clash of the Mammoths at the Trailside Museum of Natural History. A fossil find unlike any other in the world! The University of Nebraska operates the Trailside Museum which interprets the geology and natural history of the region.
