We had a great time at the fort. There was a 15 minute slide presentation in the visitors' center that was very informative. Most of the buildings on the site have been restored and were open for touring.
Though the fort itself was fascinating, the most interesting part of our visit was the time we spent with a Native American couple who had pitched their teepee on the fort grounds. We spent about 1/2 an hour visiting in their teepee, learning about Indian ways and teepee etiquette. This will always be a treasured experience for me.
