Beautiful land and scenery. If you enjoy history then touring the Custer house is well worth the price. The guide was curteous and knowledgeable. We absolutely loved this place.

We stopped on a rainy day but it was well worth the look into the Native American dwellings at the re-created village. Very cool!

A great campground on the Missouri River. The tours of the Mandan Village and General Custer’s residence on the fort was excellent.
