Historical General Custer's house is really interesting! Walking around the area and reading the signs helps you to know what went on during this time.

The most interesting part of the visit is touring General Custer's House. Without this, its just a scenic spot to walk around. The General's house is reproduction, but has original Custer furnishings mixed in with period pieces. The tour guide was excellent.

We just stopped in to see the sites (no camping). Very pretty! Not crowded at all either. Indian village was cool; Custer’s house was closed so we could only look outside. The water views are very pretty. For the best views go up to the...More

The trolley is fun but it does restrict your time at the park because it only runs for a few hours. So it depends on how much time you want to spend at Ft.Lincoln. Or if you can have someone pick you up, you could ride the... More
