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.

We stayed at the campground for three nights. The campground has sites with water and electricity. Somewhat unusual layout but very well maintained. The park includes nicely done historical reconstructions of a Mandan Indian Village, a Calvary Post and Infantry Post. The Visitor Center/Museum is very informative. The park has a number of trails for hiking and biking. A good... More

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!
