The park has two wheelchairs that are available for visitors to use on a first-come, first served basis. There is no charge to borrow a wheelchair, 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. Most of the structures have accessibility ramps that allow access to 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.
Accessible restrooms are located on the 1874 Cavalry Barracks. The restroom entrance may be found approximately half way down the veranda.
Assistive Listening Devices
Assistive 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 know prior to the start of the program.
Braille Brochure Available
For sight impaired visitors , there is a Braille version of the park brochure available, by request, at the Visitor Center. For download in a Braille ready format, please click below.
Please note that this Braille Ready File (brf) will not open without special software. Many Braille readers have computer equipment that will reproduce or read the brf on their computer screen.
