A Good Visit
While not a fort with many buildings available to see, the interpretive panels, the outlines of buildings noted by grass cutting patterns, and the visitor center, video, and displays all provide ample knowledge. The nearby sites of the Fetterman and Wagon Box battles are both thematic and convenient additions.Great gift shop too! Being a Texas forts guy, I enjoyed Fort Phil Kearney; it was a wonderful addition to our driving expedition to see as many forts as possible in ND, MT, WY and CO.
Superintendent Very Knowledgeable
We stopped by Fort Phil Kearny looking for a place to eat lunch. When we went inside, one of the superintendents, Misty Stoll, offered to show us a movie about the fort. After we ate lunch at the great picnic area, we decided to stop in to see about the movie. As soon as we came in, Misty came over and asked us if we wanted to learn about the fort. We did, and so she gave us a great introduction to the fort. We learned a lot about the fort, and then saw the short movie. Misty was VERY nice and informative. When we were ready to go, she even gave the kids stickers. Overall, everyone on our family enjoyed our visit to Fort Phil Kearny, and learned a lot. If we are ever in Wyoming again we we certainly make and effort to stop by Fort Phil Kearny.
21 December tour
Was another exceptional tour. I was in awe with the knowledge Bob and Terry shared with the group. I walk the trails at Fetterman numerous times a week and with the singers this year, was very moving at the Big Nose grave site. Many spots are special to me on the trail. Thank you
I had the pleasure of visiting Fort Phil Kearny and the Fetterman battlefield on October 30, 2013. At the small on-site museum, Starr proved to be charming and a wealth of knowledge. Anyone interested in the history of the American West and the Plains Indian conflicts should visit this most interesting site.
FULL MOON TOUR
The tours conducted by Misty Stoll and Star Zabel were outstanding. I have read a lot about the events in the area, but the little details that I heard for the first time added to a very enjoyable evening. The format was very appropriate and imaginative. Now, if they could manage to do something about the cloud cover next time...!
This was a story of which I had heard absolutely nothing: overshadowed by Custer, I imagine. The story itself is interesting, and the Fort well worth seeing. The Fort is easy to find; roads are good (in good weather); and the museum and videos are worth seeing and watching. A great piece of undiscovered history for me.
Got a real sense of an event that occurred in this magnificent setting which I had never heard of before. I'm from NJ, and it's a whole 'nother world out here.

The person in charge of the visitor center offered two films for viewing and the he went to a layout of the fort and explained the history. I came away with a greater understanding of why the Indians did what they did.

The staff was full of information. We watched the films and went through the museum. We walked in the Fort and visited the Wagon Box and Fetterman sites. It was a beautiful September day, great for taking in some of our countries history.
