We went to see the Custer house which was a reconstruction and not accurate (except for the floor plan.) The military area was basically empty mock ups of buildings. We stayed in the RV park area which was ok.

Don't miss the campground. Go and visit there along the Missouri river. There are a lot of boats, yacht,kayaking and water motorcycle on the river and there is a water beach in the middle. people were doing beach sports with loud music playing. What a happy place! Nice view also, you can see the Bismarck capital building from there. It... More

Excellent location, lots of local history. Quiet and enjoyed the lack of traffic and peacefulness. I liked everything, and there were no things that came to mind I did not like.

My wife and I stayed during our trip out west. We do not think it is worth stopping for. First, when we stopped at the entrance gate, the lady informed us the campground was full. We had no intention of camping there. We always stay at a hotel. Second, the sound for the movie at the visitor center was very... More

We enjoyed our time at Fort Abraham Lincoln, in particular the On-a-Slant Village. (Check out its separate listing for specific reviews.) Don't miss climbing the hill to the Infantry Outpost. Although there is no tour guide, it offers spectacular views of the surrounding area and a great place for kids to run around and explore.

On-A-Slant village is the primary reason to visit this state park. It is near where Lewis and Clark wintered over their first year on the expedition. If not for the Mandan, they would have starved. And it was the Mandan tribe who had Sacajawea, the woman who later was providential for the party. The village is a recreation of the... More

If you enjoy history at all this is a must see..Be sure to allow more than 2 or 3 hours to see it all especially the indian village, barracks and all the park. Camping is available and highly recommended as a two day visit is suggested to see everything and hear all the stories. My great great grandfather was a... More

This is one you must go see if you like history. It is about Lewis and Clark, Mandan Indians, Custer, and many other things. Learn how they lived and what they done to survive. The Mandan Indian wood huts are something that took a lot of work but they were really functional. Worth your time to spend 2-3 hours there... More

Visited here as park of a conference with a large group. We didn't get a chance to go to the Indian Village area but did get to tour the Custer House. We had such a large group that we split up in two groups with the Sergeant leading one group and the Laundress of the house leading the second group.... More
