Fodor's Expert Review Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park
History buffs and nature lovers alike won’t want to miss a trip out to Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park, a 30-minute drive from Bismarck. The erstwhile fort at this park was Custer’s final base before his last stand at the Battle of Little Bighorn; portions of the fort and the commander’s house have been rebuilt and can be visited today. A popular attraction within the park is the On-A-Slant Indian Village, a reconstructed Mandan Tribe village that stood on a downward-slanting parcel of land in the park until the 18th century. For those wishing to stay overnight in the park, there are two cabins, two tipis, and a campsite.
