General Information

Description - Fort Egbert Recreation Management Area is a former Yukon River U.S. Army
post. It was established in 1899 to bring law and order to the Fortymile country during the Klondike goldrush. After the boom, an Army Signal Corps was established here to operate a telegraphy and wireless station until about
1925. Currently, BLM manages five restored structures in cooperation with the local Eagle Historical Society. Fort Egbert National Historic Landmark includes the Fort as well as structures in the adjacent community of Eagle.

Recreation - Exhibits and tours are available in the summer. An interpretive trail on the Fort grounds provides access to the ruins of other structures.
