Needed an unplanned motorhome overnight campsite. Turned out to be a nice place to visit. Nice RV spots and camping by the river. Children's playground, Native American adobes and historical barracks were just a few of the features here. There is even a trolley you can pay to ride...

Great place for a picnic. Lovely views. The walking path is pretty easy to access but the stairs to the top of the buildings aren't for those who hate ladders. Very windy day!

My family and spent the day walking around the many buildings on the property. We took a tour of Custer ' s house. It was very interesting. The commissary houses the gift shop and library area, as well as, restrooms. There is camping and beautiful trails. This is a gorgeous area. I'm very glad we stopped in to look.

I would definitely recommend that you pay a little extra for the guided tours of the On-a-Slant village and Custer's home. These were very well done, and you will miss a lot if you do not go on them.

This park is a must see when in the Bismarck area. Be sure to take the guided tours of the At-A-Slant Indian village & also the Custer House. The extra cost is minimal & well worth it. You will learn something new at both stops. The young guides are very enthusiastic & dedicated to their jobs. There is also a... More

If you're a bike rider, there are bike paths from Mandan or Bismarck that are safe for the whole family, all the to and thru the park entering the north entrance. A fun ride to a fun park, with a trip through time. This is where Custer left on his trip to fate. Beautiful scenery almost on the shoreline of... More

The tour of on a slant was amazing, very interactive and informative. Moved on to the block houses on the bluff, and got a great view of the valley and area. Finished off with a tour of Custers house, a real step back in time, plan on half a day to see everything in the tours.
