Long Day Trip from Whitesboro, Tx. - My wife and I stopped at Fort Belknap several years ago. The lady operating the area opened up and let us see the museum. Everything was neat and well kept. One would be amazed at the size of the grape vines at the post. They look like small trees. I was really impressed The arbor covers picnic tables or did at that time. I understood the county had rebuilt the fort from its ruins. I enjoyed the trip and will go back.
Lots of laughs and learning - We learned so much about bird species and just awe inspiring experiences walking the Willow Trail on elevated platform and Shoveler Pond. Didnt expect the alligators we saw but that was added bonus. East Unit was closed and so was visitor center due to Covid. It was sad but allowed us to spend so much more time on the other two places. Its a place everyone should make time for. Mosquito repellent and water a must.

First Time Visitor - Site looked has if no maintenance had been provided in months. Johnson Grass three feet high, grass burs everywhere, sidewalks not edged. As a retired State Employee I was shocked by the condition of this supposedly sacred ground.
