Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park, situated near Mandan, North Dakota, preserves the remnants of a significant military post from the late 19th century and offers visitors a fascinating glimpse into both military history and Native American heritage. The park is named after President Abraham Lincoln, and it is perhaps best known as the former home of the 7th Cavalry Regiment, led by General George Armstrong Custer.

One of the main attractions within the park is the reconstructed Fort Abraham Lincoln, which provides an immersive experience of life at a military outpost in the late 1800s. Visitors can explore reconstructed military buildings, including the Custer House, which was once the residence of General Custer and his wife Libbie. Guided tours and interpretive exhibits offer insights into the daily routines of soldiers and their families, as well as the conflicts and challenges they faced during this tumultuous period in American history.

In addition to its military history, Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park is also home to On-A-Slant Indian Village, a partially reconstructed Mandan village dating back over 400 years. Visitors can wander through earth lodges and learn about the culture, traditions, and daily life of the Mandan people through interpretive exhibits and guided tours. The park's scenic beauty, with its sprawling prairie landscapes and panoramic views of the Missouri River, provides a serene backdrop for hiking, picnicking, and camping.

While the park is open year-round, certain activities and facilities may be seasonal, so visitors are encouraged to check ahead for current operating hours and availability. Throughout the summer months, the park hosts special events, living history demonstrations, and educational programs that further enhance the visitor experience and bring the rich history of Fort Abraham Lincoln to life.
