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

If you are in the Bismarck, area, I'd highly recommend a stop at this well-maintained state park. I didn't have a lot of time (in Bismarck on business), but I did have a chance to tour the Custer House, which is in great shape, and is set up as the Custers would have lived in it in 1875. There are... More

I had a great guide in the Mandan village and lodges, plus the young lady at the Custer House. Great place for kids and everyone.

This place is so educational; from the Mandans in the 1500's to Custer's house in 1875 there is so much to see and learn. The knowledgeable and friendly tour guides make this a 5 star.

It's easy to imagine the soldiers and Indians here, the views of the Missouri River valley are tremendous and great for photography, especially at sunset. You can enter the blockhouses and climb up to the top, imagining yourself the Cavalry lookout. Love this spot, spent many Summers here as a kid, and go back at least once a year.

Very good family oriented place to visit. Extremely deep in history of the region. From LeVerendrye to Custers last place of residence, very family oriented. Just do not go into Mandan for any parental entertainment. Mandan police are extremely adiment on arresting for DUI. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE in MANDAN ND. New ND laws will affect your future driving... More
