Spring Hours of Operation for Fort Scott National Historic Site

Fort Scott KS – As the days grow longer, so do the hours of operation at Fort Scott National Historic Site. Beginning Monday, April 1, the park visitor center, Parkstore, and historic structures will be open daily from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. The park grounds, walkways, and parking lot are open from ½ hour before sunrise until ½ hour after sunset daily.

Park Rangers are on hand and happy to help you learn more about the area and plan your visit. For more information about Fort Scott National Historic Site programs, upcoming events such as the annual spring Civil War Encampment (April 27 & 28), Symbols of Sacrifice (May 24 through 27), Candlelight Tour (December 6 & 7), or other activities, please call the park at 620-223-0310, or visit our website at www.nps.gov/fosc.

Fort Scott National Historic Site is a fee free park that offers a glimpse into the growth of our nation through a short film, interactive audio-visual programs, displays, the museum, and historic objects. A walk through the fort reveals the significant role it played in the opening of the West, as well as, the Civil War and the strife in the State of Kansas that preceded it.
