And pretty much right off the highway. This is a very scenic piece of history and worthy of a stop. I stopped at the park as well and spotted the biggest Tom Turkey I think I've ever seen. Huge. He looks ready for Spring. Nice...More

You can enjoy this park in a reasonable short period of time and it's well worth the visit if you're interested in artifacts from past migration on the Oregon Trail. There are even wagon ruts that remain visible to this day.

Worth a quick stop if you are in the area. Watch for the boots on the fence posts! Good information on markers.

I really wanted to see the wagon ruts from the Oregon Trail. I saw a rock ledge covered by a building, a pond that was supposed to be a fresh spring bubbling from the rocks, and hill with a gully filled in with trees. I...More
