Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park

North Dakota



Rich in both military and early Native American history, Fort Abraham Lincoln was once an important infantry and cavalry post. It was from this fort that Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and the Seventh cavalry rode out on their ill-fated expedition against the Sioux at the Little Big Horn. Portions of the military post, including the Custer House, have been reconstructed. Today, this state park is available to host the wedding of your dreams. A modern campground is located in a scenic wooded area adjacent to the Heart River with picnic sites and playground equipment. The setting creates a relaxed and casual atmosphere that your guests will love. Walking along the gently sloping hills, your family and friends will have a panoramic view of the Missouri River from the park's nature and historic trails. Choose Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park for your big day and surround yourself in history, nature and outdoor beauty.
