This was a very clean campground with friendly/helpful staff. It had lots of activities and historical displays/tours, located right on "Big Muddy" (also known as the Missouri River.) It was more like real camping than a typical RV park. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

When we drove in to the park, there was a self registration box by the unmanned registration booth with a large sign telling campers that they must register before going any farther. Try as we might, there were no registration slips anywhere and we and another camper looked everywhere. We drove in, picked a pull through site that allowed us to use our rooftop satellite dish and went to hook up electric and small print in the box informed us 50 amp was not available, only 30 amp power, although the 50 amp outlet was in the box. Camp host was not present so we waited till they returned and got a registration slip from them and were also informed there is no 50 amp electric in the park. The previous reviews indicated there was 50 amp but since we were only staying one night we got by OK. There was a water spigot at most campsites and the park was well maintained. It was a little to far out of our way to consider staying again. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

We were there on a week night in late September. It was quiet and lovely. Very pretty setting. Very open sites. Nice playground. I had solid Verizon 4G. If you have an old map, the north entrance has closed, enter from the south. The posted rate does not include a vehicle entrance fee. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great State Park! We had a back in spot that was plenty big for our 40 foot motorhome. All the rangers and hosts were friendly. We were all amazed at how pretty the whole park was. We really enjoyed the tour of Custer house and the Indian village for $6. We would for sure go back if we are in the area. We really liked North Dakota. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

Some tight spots. We were given a half moon pull through that was mostly level. The roads entering here are paved. It was a good spot for a couple of days to visit the Lewis & Clark exhibits and the Custer home. We were not here on a weekend, so it was pretty quiet. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate includes $5 daily vehicle fee. Nice campground. Most of the sites are pull-through, although length, levelness and tree clearance can vary, and many of the hookups are oddly placed. For $6 you can take a guided tour of Custer's house, barracks, commissary, granary, stables, infantry fort (all replicas of 1870s buildings), and Mandan earth lodges. I'd give it a higher rating, but partiers often blare obnoxious music on the nearby sandbars in the river until the wee hours and there's nothing anyone can do about it. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The roads into the camping area are all paved. This is the first campground that we have been to that has two-way traffic, which made initial entry into the camping area a little tight when another unit was leaving as we were entering. Our site was not very level and was extremely difficult, due to trees, to park in. This is a double site, but there is a problem with the electrical outlets. There is only one box with the choice of 30 or 20 amp. The camp host was really nice about the challenging situation as were our neighbors. We were able to work it out between us, but if we had both needed 30 amp, it would have proved problematic. It was raining when we arrived and our motorhome started sinking down on one side. We place wood under our levelers which helped with the problem. During a break in the rain, we walked around the campground and notice that some of the sites were flooded. While the restroom area was fairly clean given the rainy situation, I can only give the showers a "C" for cleanliness. While it appears that the shower house is fairly new, it really needs a power washing to remove the grime, grit, trash, & mold around the bottom of edges of the stalls. On the positive side, the park is really beautiful and the museum one of the best I've seen. Be sure to visit the Mandan Indian Village located on the grounds. There are numerous hiking and biking trails, but it was too wet for us to try any of them out. For younger children, there is a beautiful playground. I enjoyed watching the deer and rabbits walk around the campground. Fishing is permitted at this park. We would return, but would strive to get a single site on the east side of the campground. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park located outside of the Mandan/Bismark area. A nature oasis with lots of trees, wildlife, and river. Plenty of room between sites. Great location to tour the area and come home to a nature setting. First loop is big rig friendly, second loop is a bit tight. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

This park was flooded during 2011, based on the marks on the trees in the park. There is no other evidence of a problem. The restrooms and showers were clean and private. Staff was helpful; we were given a site close to the restrooms and showers during our midweek stay. A nice bike path goes into downtown Mandan. The infantry post, Mandan village earthhouses, and Custer home were interesting aspects of the park. We enjoyed our two night stay and would stay again when in the area.

Excellent spot! If you haven't made a reservation, call them and they will let you know how many "first come, first served" RV sites are available. We arrived in the afternoon and found a lovely spot. Area is grass covered and lots of trees. Bathrooms are very clean. We found a site that shared a water spigot. We have electric also. Some sites have water for each site and yes, some water spigots are several feet away. Don't hesitate because this is a beautiful area. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park with lots of space between sites. I had noticed that there were plenty of reserved sites available a few days before, but when we got there, the park ranger said all the "first come/first serve" sites were taken. I asked if we could stay in one of the "reserved" sites and since we were there only one night, he did allow us to do so. Next time I will make a reservation. Some water spigots were spaced far from the RV pad. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice State Park and I cannot add anymore to what the other reviewer stated except...the park ranger in the kiosk booth upon noticing I had travelled all the way from California, worked me in even though the park was reserved out for the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Wow, that was nice! I just had to leave the next morning before noon and that was my plan anyway. A great place! We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

This was one of the nicest state parks I've ever stayed in. It is so clean and peaceful. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because there aren't sewer hook-ups. Other than that, it's a perfect place to stay. The Indian village and Custer's house are here and worth the tours. There are plenty of walking/biking paths and plenty of spaces to walk the dog. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

Lovely park with big sites right by the Missouri River. Can be a bit noisy with cars going by at night. Water and electricity. A quiet location but not too far from Bismarck. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely park with a small beach area. There was flooding the previous year so I think they are still working on cleaning up the park. The hook-ups are on the wrong side so can be awkward when you back in/pull in to the site. There are firepits at each site. Lots to see and do in the area. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.
