We had not visited the park in any years. We enjoyed going into the Earth Lodges of Slanted village. They were amazingly cool inside and appeared much larger on the inside. We also visited the museum and found it very educational. The setting is along the Missouri River. The whole location was both beautiful and peaceful.

Vary nice campground surrounded by much history. With the museum cavalry forts earth homes & The Custer house you will have a full day of tours. Then if you like fishing the Missouri river is right there. Good luck & have fun. Remember Custer was healthy when he left N.D.

Make sure to have an ample amount of time for all of the park. Make sure to pencil in some time to tour General Custer's house!

Nice drive and beautiful view of the surrounding river and valley. See Custer's home that has been rebuilt with tours and camp by the river.

We stayed overnight in Bismarck, arriving mid afternoon, and decided to take a quick trip ti the Park. It was well worth it despite the wet, cold windy weather. The highlight was a tour of the Custer house, the home he had built to replace the one which had burned down. It is a magnificent home, much more elegant than... More

The guide to our visit to the Custer house was extremely factual and complete. Although the original house burned the rebuilt model does more than present a picture of life at the fort it also help... More
