We stayed the night on Larned and stopped here on our way our of town. We could have stayed longer but wanted to get going.

The rangers on staff were very informative and fun.

This is the 3rd fort for us and the 2nd on the Santa Fe Trail. The kids are really piecing US history together by visiting the Historical Sites and all the parks in the NP system.

Plan for an hour to an hour and a half.

This place was pretty cool. We stopped on our way home from Dodge City! I would recommend visiting during the summer months.
