Old Fort on the Prairie
Fort Fetterman, the last and longest operating fort on the Bozeman Trail, is preserved as a reminder of that colorful era known as the "winning of the west' in the 1860s. A restored officer's quarters and an ordinance warehouse stand among the many visible foundations of the fort and Fetterman City.
What to Do
Visitors are encouraged to walk the grounds where interpretive signs describe how the West was won with detailed buildings, house maps, drawings, photographs, artifacts, and dioramas. Camping is allowed on the site.
