We visited with my daughter and grandchildren. It was so nice to see the Custer house and the slant village. All guides were very informative. We went back in time to 1885 when we visited the Custer house. Very nice and the guide made no mistakes when asked by a visitor a question about General Custer in the past tense.... More

If you like history and want to bring it to life, then Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park is for you! Completes the story of Custer's Last Stand - as he started that fatefully journey from Fort Lincoln. The guides for Custer's house were excellent. They are dressed as infantry men and the time is 1875. The barracks are done up... More

We chose this place; especially to sleep in the tipi and have the experience. We were somewhat surprised by the wood floor and cots; but also felt that most would want that (over the ground floor). We were greeted by the park ranger and were happy with the facilities (long drop close by). Modern facilities (flush toilet and showers) were... More

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
