The restored commissary building houses interpretive exhibits and a gift shop. The stone foundations of the other fort buildings remain and interpretive markers on the grounds tell the fort's story. The site is located within Fort Ridgely State Park which offers hiking trails, horseback riding, a nine-hole golf course, fishing and camping.
