Stop by the oldest state park in North Dakota.
This state park features an Indian Village, a visitor center, military forts, breathtaking landscape, a coffee shop, gift shop, picnic shelters, playground, showers, and more. Lodging options for guests include cabins, teepees, and campgrounds. The visitor center museum showcases over 1,000 historical artifacts, including pottery, animal skins, and more. Learn of the Mandan Native Americans' lives by experiencing the on-a-slant village and venture through the reconstructed earth lodges built into the sediment of the hillsides.
Once known as Fort Mckeen, Fort Abraham Lincoln is a place where you can see what life was like for early frontier soldiers. This fort housed about 650 men at a time. The fort declined in 1891, and most of the fort was dismantled. Today, you will see a newly reconstructed fort depicting the historic military buildings. There are 6.75-miles of loop trails that are perfect for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Equestrians must have a horse permit to ride in the park.
