5:00 pm - 6:15 pm - Get your tickets and have time to browse the Dances With Wolves film set and the Fort Hays Workshops.

Looking out towards Mount Rushmore as you visit the Dances With Wolves film set, you see much more as you browse along the boardwalk at Fort Hays. Our Craftsmen work with their hands every day from making ropes, plates and much more.

Fort Hays is more than just a set of buildings; it’s a trip back in time where you can see antiques that actually operate still today. You can find Black Hills Gold from Deadwood, assist in make your own tin plate or rope. You’ll see all this as you visit our workshops and take pictures of yourself or the kids learning how things were made back in the old west.

Let not forget the best gift shops in the Black Hills. You will not find better prices than here at Fort Hays.

6:30 pm – Supper bell rings loud calling all cowboys and cowgirls to bring their appetites. We serve up the best Chuckwagon menu in the west that’s sure to make your mouth water. It’s all served on handmade tin plates with drinks poured into tin cups. Be careful, the coffee is hot!
