The Adventures of Reba

Crawford, NE

This is Fort Robinson State Park in Crawford, NE and it is amazing! After an hour of driving at the edge of a storm, we were greeted by a rainbow at our campsite, and it only got better from there. This park has so much to see and do: 60 miles of hiking, biking, and horse riding trails, stage coach rides and train tours and Jeep rides, an indoor swimming pool, two museums including one with two mammoths that died interlocked together, a bison herd and longhorns and deer, a playhouse with multiple musicals performed every summer, a free rodeo every week…I could go on. A lot has happened in this park over its history, including the site where Crazy Horse was killed and a German POW camp in the 1940s. There are only a handful of places I’d go back to again, and Fort Robinson is definitely one of them!

I didn’t have a bike the first six months we were on the road, but bought one earlier this summer, and am loving the opportunity it’s given me to explore some of the places we’ve visited more fully!
