Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site, La Junta Reviews
We drove to the fort from South Fork on the way to Colorado Springs. It was about two hours out of our way, but I am so glad we went. My 5 and 10 year old daughters loved it. The main part of the fort is able to be seen as a self guided walking tour. Most of the rooms are packed full of era appropriate furniture and items. Many can be touched. The forge and carpenter shop were really a highlight. Plan on spending at least a couple of hours, but maybe up to half a day if you want to really explore.
Place is wonderful and off the beaten path. The guides are very knowledgeable and do their absolute best to stay in character. Accurate historical interpretation with some of the people being what they are portraying in real life as well. (the blacksmith that was there on 6-7-18 is also a blacksmith in his life outside the fort.) You will learn so much from here.
Reconstructed on the same site it originally built. Lots of fun. You get to roam the entire fort. There are in character hosts to make you feel even more back in that time. This wasn't a military fort but a trading fort. So glad we visited. Gift store and stamp cancellation for your passports. :) :)
This was a trading fort. Try to get an interpretors tour. They assume the personality of someone who lived at the fort in the 1800s. Fort is a reproduction made from drawings and is made out of Adobe brick. There is a charge to get in. Its a long walk from the parking lot but they will come and pick you up if you need to ride. Well worth the trip.
Great place to visit! I would highly recommend going on the ranger guided tour to get a better understanding of what life was like when the fort was in its heyday. We learned a lot and left with a greater appreciation what those early settlers, traders, and soldiers went through.👍
