I loved this fort! Several great photo options. You can see for miles! There are two forts that you can climb on top and enjoy the views. Lots of room for small kids to run around. Worth a stop

Fort Abraham Lincoln is an interesting place to visit, but there isn't much there. The entrance fee is $7 per car and the interactive performance at Custer's house is another $6 each. A little pricey for not much.

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
