I took my two young girls and 2 20yr Olds to Fort Steele. We got the full package that included the train ride, wagon rife and theatre show. Everyone had a great time.

Arrived at 2:30 and spent an entertaining 2 1/2 hours walking around the town to visit the many historical buildings, watching plays by the costumed characters and riding the steam engine train. Great experience because of the cleanliness, staff excitement and well preserved buildings.

My family enjoyed themselves, this place delivers. I think it would be fun to do a late night ghost walk or campfire stories for near by campers.

We stopped here for lunch. The lunch was fair. I would suggest this Village to be good for kids learning how people lived in history during that time period they had lot of different old houses, demonstrations, horse rides, and several little shops.

I don't understand where they get the baked goods if they don't make them there. They have a full time baker on staff and I know she works very hard to make new things for the bakery.

My wife requires a handicap scooter to get around , due to a knee injury. Is Fort Steele handicap friendly?

There are wooden boardwalks that are ramped for access to the buildings as well as a ramp up to the train. In places where there are no boardwalks the roads are very well maintained. Shouldn't be a problem.

But isn't May the off-season for Fort Steele? I'm pretty sure the season when they operate fully staffed is not until the end of June.
