For an unforgettable cultural, historic, and scenic visit, don’t miss Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park. This is the oldest state park in North Dakota. This park features the replica Mandan On-A-Slant Indian Village and the reconstructed Custer House. It allows visitors to “travel through time” to explore the area’s history by viewing artifacts at the Visitor Center Museum. The visitor center was first built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1934. Reconstructed earthlodges show visitors the lives of Mandan Native Americans who lived at On-a-Slant Village. At old Fort Abraham Lincoln (Fort McKeen), visitors will learn about life as a frontier soldier by walking through the blockhouses and furnished barracks, and experience a living history tour at the commanding officer’s quarters.
Moreover, Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park offers outdoor discovery, with views of the Heart and Missouri Rivers along the scenic trail system. Over 100 campsites are available for visitors to stay overnight.
