Electric Cart Accessibility Tours

The staff at Fort Laramie National Historic Site offers electric cart tours for mobility challenged visitors on a first-come, first-served basis. Inquires should be made at the park visitor center or at the entrance kiosk. Arrangements can be made ahead of time by calling the park headquarters at 307-837-2221 ext. 0.

It should be noted that each vehicle can only hold a limited number of passengers and non-impaired friends or relatives may be required to walk. Also, it should be noted that this service, while free of charge, is operated depending on staff availability.

Wheel Chair Loan

The park has two wheel chairs that are available for visitors to use on a first-come, first served basis. There is no charge to borrow a wheel chair and arrangements and pickup can be made in the visitor center.

Accessible Historic Structures

The historic structures at Fort Laramie are more than a century old and accessibility is not always ideal. However, we are constantly improving visitor access. Still, most of the structures have accessibility ramps that allow access to, at least. the lower sections of the structures. A photograph book or tablet virtual tour are available at the visitor center to allow visitors to see the furnishings in upper floors of the historic structures.

Restrooms

Accessible restrooms are located on the 1874 Cavalry Barracks. The restroom entrance may be found approximately half way down the veranda.

Enhance Listening Devices

Enhanced listening devices are available for the 18 minute park audio visual program. Both stand alone and hearing aid compatible devices are available. If you require such a device, please let the ranger at the information desk counter know prior to the start of the program.
