Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park

4480 Fort Lincoln Rd

Rich in both military and early Native American history, Fort Abraham Lincoln was once an important infantry and cavalry post. It was from this fort that Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and the Seventh cavalry rode out on their ill-fated expedition against the Sioux at the Little Big Horn. Portions of the military post, including the Custer House, have been reconstructed. 

Popular with visitors is On-A-Slant Indian Village. Reconstructed earthlodges depict the lifestyle of the Mandan Indians, who occupied this site from about 1575-1781. 

A modern campground is located in a scenic wooded area adjacent to the Heart River with picnic sites and playground equipment. Walking along the gently sloping hills, visitors have a panoramic vista of the Missouri River from the park's nature and historic trails. 

The park also has 4 primitive campsites with horse corrals.

This campgroup is located in a wonderful State Park. Each site spaced far apart and right along the river. Space 71 is best with hookups for an RV. But all are equally nice. Clean clean bathrooms and showers. Miles of hiking walking trails well marked. manned by informative young rangers. Great small museum. We came for 2 days and stayed an extra day.

This is my happy place. My family recently went to the Dakotas for vacation and out of all the places we went (rushmore, badlands etc) this state park was my favorite. There are tons of things to do. See the mandan village, take pictures by the rail road track, visit the museum and army barracks. If you go, make sure you drive up the road to see the reconstructed lookout forts... the view of the Missouri at sunset is breathtaking.

So much history and the buildings have been expertly rebuilt. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made you feel as if you had stepped back in time.

Great place to visit on the way to Little Bighorn. The guide, dressed in period costume, made the tour of Custer's last home very enjoyable. The park is large with many interesting features.
