It was a bit tough coming with a toddler. But my family & I enjoyed it. It's an experience we will always remember.

The Fort Seward Wagon Train began as a onetime experience but the organizers thought the experience so worthwhile that a wagon train has been organized annually since the first one in 1969. Now Fort Seward, Inc. considers the wagon train a project of great benefit to those who wish to relive the pioneer family experience. This adventure takes place for one full week in late June.

Fort Seward, Inc. continues to be organized by a Board of Directors; which volunteer their time to coordinate each wagon train trip. The board does not have any commercial interests in organizing our adventures. The wagon train is considered a valuable historical experience which the Board of Directors and volunteer staff find personal satisfaction.
