Fort Robinson, Nebraska

Fort Robinson State Park, Crawford, NE 69339, Crawford, Ne, Nebraska

Admin: Dennis Hawk

Fort Bob, as the locals call it, is an old Calvary post going back to the frontier times. It is at the end of the Pine Ridge, basically the tail end of the Black Hills. The fort has cabins, bunkhouses and plenty of camp site, RV space and nice secure stalls. The scenery is great and the riding runs from leisurely to challenging.

PEAK RIDING SEASON / WEATHER

Any time from March through September, not sure about Fort Bob's season. It gets hot in the summer but the humidity is very low so it's comfortable. Nights are almost alway cool with gorgeous skies. T
