Lots of big rig friendly sites. No satelite on ours though. Water and 50 amp power a little stretch to reach. Spaces are nice size. Some of the pull through might be a little tricky curving around a tree. Overall very nice park. Was a little bit muddy and puddles after the rain. Enjoyed our time in Bismarck (mandam). Fee included camping plus car permit. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

Go visit the North Dakota Heritage museum on the capital grounds. We really enjoyed and learned a lot. And it's free. Not sure young kids will like. We were surprised that we spent 4 hours there before we knew it.

Very comfortable location/park. the site was just about level And it was very spacious. In hooking up it's apparent that you very much need a long long hose or a long long electric line. The connections are spaced throughout but often lock a long distance from your actual RV plug in. What is so nice about this park is its location. The views are magnificent both at the campground site and up on the hill where the block houses are. The visitor center is most informative and the commissary location has good coffee and at every location the staff is the most friendly and helpful. We did not take the tours offered but did walk a variety of trails as well as biking in the area. If you are in good shape you can bike into Mandan or there is a trolley that comes into the park from Mandan and as a tourist attraction. There is Wi-Fi on site at the visitor center and at the commissary both of which are open 9 to 5. Because we had additional computer things that we needed to do we went in to the Mandan library which is conveniently located on main street. When we looked for a place to eat away from the campsite there was only a couple of places open in town on Sunday. We ended up at the local diner which was sufficient. The town is 7 miles away from the campground and that is where you will locate a supermarket as well. I understand there's a Walmart in the area but we ended up being in Bismarck and did our additional shopping there. We did not attempt to get over air TV connectivity so we do not know if it's available. The dumpsite it is conveniently located and easy to pull in and out of. Most of the sites are pull through and almost all have electricity There is a nice walk along the river within the campground. The park is kept very clean as well as the restrooms and showers. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Travel Trailer.

No Wi-Fi, marginal Verizon wireless network, no cable, with 17 OTA channels. Burn ban in effect, but green grass everywhere??? 7 miles from Manadan. Park like setting, with spacious campsites. Water and electric hook ups a long way from the RV, bring extra hose and electric cable. No sewer but a dump site on the premises. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Found this lovely state park located along the Missouri River. Lots of trees, grass and open spaces. Sites are spacious and neighbors are in sight but not even close. Our 5th wheel is 41' and our site was super big! Could have fit another trailer in. Had 50 amp electric and water at site. Sewer dump station in campground. Plenty of bike and walking trails. The reconstructed buildings of Fort Abraham Lincoln 7th Calvery is well worth the visit including the home of Lt. Col Custer and his wife. Would most definitely stay again! We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A large, long loop CG with lots of side of asphalt road pull throughs interspersed with back ins of dirt dirt. Lots of the pull throughs serviced two campers. Lots of large trees. Large central grassed area between the loops. Clean bath house with hot showers. Path through woods by Missouri River. The A.L. state park is the site of an indian war US Army post with one officer's house and an enlisted men's barracks to see, a really great CCC built museum, and five recreated round Mandan indian lodges at the slant indian village. Really well done. The museum and indian village is the real attraction. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 4 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful State park! It is clean, and the staff is very friendly. We had 30 amp, and it worked well. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The Missouri River flows beside the campground. There are hiking and biking trails. Some sites require having a long hose to connect to the water spigots. There are no sewer connections, but they have a dump station. Many people fish along the banks of the Missouri River. Mandan is a few miles north. Custer's home and the Fort buildings have been restored. There are also 5 Mandan earth lodges at the former On A Slant Mandan Village that you can tour on the park grounds. The Museum on the grounds is well worth a visit to learn about the fort, the Mandan people who used to live on these grounds, and the CCC's who restored the buildings. The park is a quiet place to sleep at night. The park is conveniently located to Mandan and Bismarck. If in the area, we would definitely return to Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park to camp in our 5th wheel. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There are fast food restaurants in Mandan, as well as a Walmart for shopping. There are more choices for restaurants in Bismarck, which is not far away. The North Dakota Heritage Museum in Bismarck is excellent and FREE to the public! We wish we had made more time to visit it, we didn't get to see all of it before it's closing time

May 15th. We had site 14 which is actually 14 and 15. One would pull-thru and the other would have to back in as the electrical and water is in the middle. Since the park was fairly empty we had the site all to ourselves with enough space for the tow. In summer it is packed with locals. This is a lovely park about 10 miles off Hwy94. Opening day is officially in a weeks time, so it was peaceful and enjoyable. Local people came to walk and river fish. Walleye is good right now, but we got a free catfish from a friendly local. The Hart and the Missouri river confluence is right next to us and it is 50 yds to walk to the river. The nightly rate is 25.00. Plus 5 for the MH. Plus 5 if you use your toad to drive in and out of the park. We paid 35.00 total. Water and electric only. Dump station on the way out. There is a additional charge of 6.00/pp to visit the Custer House. I also think there is a charge for the Slant On Indian Village. It all adds up. No discount unless senior ND pass (20 or 25 so worth it if staying 4 days or more in a ND SP) and military. I was told that ND, SD and Minnesota State Parks are going to a reservations only system. What does that mean for drop ins? If 35/night is no problem, then this is definitely an excellent place to stay - especially when you have the park all to yourself! We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

Dan's Supermarket is a local grocery store about 6 miles away. Check at the Visitors Center in the Park to see what there is to do and see ad the costs. Fishing lic. is 27.00 for 3 days for out of staters. Night crawlers and lic. can be bought at the gas store in town or a nearby Walmart.

This is a lovely, quiet park at the confluence of the Heart and Missouri rivers, a few miles out of Mandan and near Bismark. The sites along the river are long, covered with fresh gravel, with trees trimmed for large RVs. A variety of walkways and paths wind through the park, which also features historic buildings. Cyclers will enjoy the bike paths. Birders will see a variety of special birds. We stayed two nights and found a variety of activities to do in the area. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Several bike paths in the area are great, with beautiful vistas. There are a also number of good museums in town and a nice zoo. We were here in September and the park was wide open, yet the evenings were warm. Definitely a good stop that we'd recommend, especially if traveling with children or grandchildren.

We spent three days here and loved it, plenty of things to see, check out the historic fort recreation and guard posts on the top of the hill. The location is scenic, right next to the confluence of two rivers. The sites are spacious and the facilities well tended and adequate for the volume of campers, at least in September. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

Great place to stay. Always clean bathrooms and showers. Some sites can be a little small for the giant rigs. If you know how to handle your rig, should not be a problem. The river is a very short walk from most sites. Great fishing area. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clean nice state park along the Missouri and with lots of history. Sites are interesting - a few are single pull throughs but most are either back-in or pull through depending on who gets to the site 1st, as they are shared semi circles. Then you face the issue did the other party park in the middle of the site so that the 2nd party can't get in. Also, we had a 50 amp plug, but was only wired for 30 amp! Price is steep for a state park as they charge $30/night + $6 per person entry fee hence $42 for 2 persons + reservation fee if applicable AND needed for weekends. NO view of water except for a few primitive sites. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

The On a Slant village was very interesting even though neither of the 2 scheduled guides showed up that day. The Commadore's House where General Custer lived was also informative - part of the expensive entrance fee is due to these 2 features.

Very nice park. We were here in off season, mid-week so there were not a lot of campers. Each pull through is for two sites, so you would be close to one other when campground is full. There is a lot to see here and its pretty interesting. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Truck Camper.

This was an overnight stop for us on a Saturday. The park was full but quiet, considering the number of campers. Park was cleaned up from a number of downed trees from a recent storm. Most sites looked level. Water connection was available, but quite a distance from the motorhome; 30 amp electric only. Good Verizon cell/MiFi reception; good satellite reception. Many of the sites are companion sites (two RVs on one pull-through site). There is a $5 per day entry fee in addition to the site fee and on-line registration fee. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived here a few days before the campground was opened for the season. Electricity was available but the water was not turned on yet. We had the campground to ourselves, just the host and one other camper. The staff was busy getting the park ready for the weekend. It is a great park with lots to do for the family, but we think for us, the park could feel crowded during season, but the families would love it. Sites are level, nicely spaced, utilities are well placed. The campground is right on the Missouri River, with nice paved walking trails next to it. Received over the air TV stations, sites are available for satellite view. Our Verizon/Sprint signals strong, the pup loved the area. This is a wonderful campground and would stay here again. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

This is about 8 miles from the town of Mandan, where there is gas, grocery store and a few places to eat. We also saw an RV dealership, may provide service if you need it. Bismarck is the state capital, a nice tour of the capital is available. The wonderful State Museum is also there, free admission, too. At the campground is the Custer House, Cavalry Post and the On-a-Slant Indian village. You get a guided tour of both for $6.
