Spent an entire afternoon visiting Fort Steele. Lots of history with actors re-enactments of town meetings, court cases and story telling. Highly recommended.

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.
