Loved this park. I took away a star only because it had a crowded feeling when it was full on the long weekend. And the washroom/shower building is quite a hike. We stayed with full hookups in Red Cloud Campground. Soldier Creek has electric hookups, but there is a water fill and dump station on the way in. Lots to do. Wagon rides, trail rides, jeep rides, museums, history, small evening rodeo, live theatre until Aug 15. Great biking (just watch out for tire "stickers" in late August.) We stayed on the roads after having to fix our tires. Park is very well kept. I couldn't help but feel so relaxed after a couple days. We extended by 2 days and still hated to leave. Lots of day trips from this area, too...Toadstool Park, Hudson-Meng Bison Kill site, Fur Trade Museum, Agate Fossil Beds Monument.... We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Large tent area next to creek. Grass could be in better shape but otherwise excellent place to stay. Hiking areas, roads in park are nice. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Tent.

There are two separate campgrounds. Both are fairly shaded. Water pressure is good. There is no WIFI signal at the campgrounds, but I got a strong signal on my Verizon phone and hot spot device. Full hookups are available, but the demand is high on the weekends during the summer. The park has a policy of not accepting reservations in advance for half of their full hookup spots. However, they will allow you to call the day you are going to arrive and make a reservation, so if you can't get a reservation in advance, get on the phone at 8:00 am of the day you are going to arrive and get a reservation. I called on Thursday morning and got a reservation for five days and stayed through the weekend when there were no reservations available for the weekend. Go figure! We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

First trip to Fort Rob and it was well worth it. Plenty to see and do including horseback riding, hiking, biking, fishing, and kayaking. Fort has planned activities and a playhouse. A lot of history at the fort. Staff very courteous and friendly. Camp site was superb, some shade and widely spaced. Would stay again. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground with lots to do in the Fort Robinson area. Don't miss the theater. Camped during the 4th of July; this campground is so well laid out and spacious that it did not seem crowded at all. Camped in Soldier Creek CG with electric only. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

What a jewel of a campground. We were in a big rig full hookup site. No trees. The other area Soldier creek is heavy treed. So much to do, including a great Post Play House with live musical performance. Restaurant has a great breakfast and the haywagon/steak dinner was great. Friends took the horse back riding and carriage rides, again a bargain. Crawford is not a historical cowboy town, so just bypass, nothing there. Free rodeo at the fort on Thursday nights..We had a wonderful time and highly recommend. The grounds are pristine and extremely well maintained and all the staff are very nice. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Robinson campground is a very good campground in NE Nebraska that caters to many different types of campers (full hook-up, electric only, tent camping, horse camping). The old cavalry post facilities provide both historic and numerous other activities (in the summer) for both young and old. Additional fee for state park entrance. We camped in an electrical site with a TT. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a wonderful state park. We liked it so much we extended our stay. Many historic buildings to tour and a natural history museum. Sites were generous; one campground has full hookups. Staff was friendly. Saw bison, prong horns and deer. Great place for hiking and trial riding. Lots of activities in the summer but we enjoyed the quiet in the fall. We would stay here again. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is actually $31 because they attach a daily access fee of $5 for each day you elect to stay. Red Cloud full hook-up power for the first two night spiked to 138 volts several times each night and my EMS disconnected us each time, until voltage returned to a normal range. The CG is clean and okay, nearest restroom and/or showers about 1/4 mile away in another section. Red Cloud is the only section with full hook-ups. Parking an RV at the park office to check in is a little dicey, on the street, not a parking lot. The Fort is historic and well maintained with wagon rides, plays and shows at Post Theatre, horse back rides and lots or room to walk, or ride bicycles. Knowing what to expect in Red Cloud we likely would return. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$26 per night was for a full hookup site on a level asphalt pad in the Red Cloud campground. We purchased the annual park permit for $25 and a duplicate park permit for our tow vehicle for an additional $12.50, as we will be at least two weeks in NE State Parks. There was a picnic table with a pedestal BBQ unit on the site. What other reviewers had to say about the park is correct; so much to see and do in and around the park, especially if you’re staying in-season. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. The night sky is gorgeous as are the sunsets. The park was very quiet during a portion of our stay but I can imagine that during the summer months the noise level goes up. The campground is a 3-mile drive into town where there are a few restaurants and grocery stores. Cell phone service on AT&T is 4G but out-of-network. Verizon data coverage was 4G LTE so we used our Millenicom jetpack for Wi-Fi access in the park. There was no OTA TV that we could tune in. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped in the Soldier Creek loop, with electric only. With the big trees, we had trouble getting satellite reception. Staff was friendly and helpful. The next time we would stay in Red Cloud section. Fort Robinson itself was very interesting with lots to do and wonderful walking areas. Would stay here again if in the area.

Price reflects full hook up. This is a great place for families and kids. Park is clean, sites are level, plenty of activities to do. The only down side is really not over air TV to speak of. I would stay here again. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Interesting place to visit with a lot of history to offer. We camped with full hook-ups. There is not much around the Fort so the TV antenna only received 3 stations (PBS of course). Our Verizon air card worked well but the AT&T smart phones did not. The Fort has a lot to offer; history, horse back riding, tubing down the river and numerous of things to keep you busy. The sites are well maintained and had no issues with the facilities or staff. It is a little tricky to find the camp ground as it is not well marked. Worth a visit if you like historical areas. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Robinson State Park's campground offers shady, electrical hookup sites plus primitive sites. Conveniently located are modern restrooms, showers, water, dump station, picnic tables and a shelter. Fort Robinson offers a nice campground for the horse lovers. Put your horse up for the night in one of the newly remodeled horse barns. With many miles of trails to ride through the beautiful Pine Ridge, this makes a great place to camp and enjoy the outdoors. Fort Robinson campground offers group camping with equestrian facilities. The campground is open year round with electricity. Showers and water will be shut down during the winter months. 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. What a centrally located park in the USA that would be perfect for a huge family gathering! I have NEVER enjoyed a state park more. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Motorhome.
