We took the 2-Hour covered wagon ride. It was a highlight of our vacation. Our wagon master Morris was great. Very accommodating. And such a wealth of information. Gave us great history and answered every question we had. What a unique experience.
Booked a 2 hour ride with my kids on horseback and my wife and I in the wagon. Really fun experience, although the wagon ride can be rough, so be prepared for a bumpy ride! The ladies guiding us were great people, really enjoyed chatting...More
Our family recently booked the three day covered wagon excursion with Morris and Randy at Historic Trails West. I am an amateur historian and have read extensively about the period including the Oregon trail migration. I have always wandered what it must have been like...More
We drove out from Illinois, with our two grandsons (ages 10 and 12), and were treated to one of the best experiences of our lives! The three-day wagon trip was absolutely wonderful. We all learned so much about the history of the Oregon Trail and...More
We had the overnight wagon trail trip; Morris told is a lot about history, and luckily we saw a mule deer, several antilopes and other deers. The ride was rough but wonderful, we really liked it and our kids ( aged 11,10&7 years old) loved...More
In all my travels around America this is the single most interesting thing I have ever done.... bar none!
We could not go on our scheduled trip due to the effects of torrential rain, but Morris re scheduled the trip to suit us and fit...More
We did the 4 hour trail ride, with lunch at the campsite. It was just my husband and myself. They picked us up at the Interpretive Center and drove us out to the trail site. Morris should write a book - he has a wealth...More
We did the overnight ride. This was a fantastic experience. Morris and Greg did a great job explaining the history. They were experts in the subject teaching all of us all about the settlers experiences. Answered all of our questions very detailed and explained it...More
We had an absolutely delightful time with Morris and his crew. The tour lasted about 3 hours which included a fantastic chuck wagon dinner and covered about three miles on the Oregon Trail. Morris is very knowledgeable and shares a great deal of historical information...More

four people would easily fit in a teepee. it was just the three of us, two adults and my 12 year old daughter and we had a table and two chairs accessible to us in the teepee as well. Two port a potties are nearby to use. Coffee was ready in the morning at approximately 6:45am. We did not rent the sleeping bags, they provided it for us, their website is not updated. and we did not need to pay for the bags we brought either, which she mentioned on the phone to me. My daughter did not sleep in a sleeping bag. She had on her stitch onesie and used the fleece blanket she brought. They provided pillows as well and a thick 4" foam mattress which made it super comfortable. This was on the ground. I got really hot in my sleeping bag at night. I had on a pair of fleece pajamas and my jacket, which was not breathable and caused me to sweat, which I do not typically do at night. I had to take this off and was never once cold. Bring a flashlight as you will need it to get from the camp fire to your teepee, which is only 20-30 feet away. it came in handy when I went into the teepee to turn the candle on inside, which they provide.
