One of North Dakota’s best state parks, Fort Abraham Lincoln combines outdoor recreation with history. Rich in both military and early Native American history, the fort was once an important infantry and cavalry post. In fact, Fort Abraham Lincoln is where Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and his 7th Cavalry camped and supplied before their ill-fated expedition against the Sioux at Little Big Horn. Portions of the fort, including the Custer House, have been painstakingly reconstructed.
If you’re interested in early Native American life, there’s the On-a-Slant Indian village with reconstructed earth-lodges that depict the lifestyle of the Mandan Indian tribe, who occupied the site between 1575 to 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. Amenities include water and electrical hookups, an RV dump station, showers, cabins, a coffee shop, visitor center, historic buildings, interpretive tours, and horse corrals.
Nearby attractions that you can explore include the state capitol, North Dakota Heritage Center, Fort Rice and Huff Indian State Historic Sites, Raging Rivers Water Park, Standing Rock National Native American Scenic Byway, and Old Red Trail Scenic Byway, to name a few.
