Fort Stevenson State Park

Take a step back in time. Fort Stevenson State Park is hosting Frontier Military Days on the Guardhouse Interpretive Center lawn.

Visitors can experience what life was like at an 1870s military fort. The military encampment features authentic tents and gear, living history demonstrations of tomahawk throwing, trader tent and black powder gun demonstrations. Skills and crafts of the Indian Wars period on display.

Witness the cannon firing at noon and 3:30 pm each day.

Fort Stevenson Frontier Military Days is sponsored by the Fort Stevenson Foundation, a volunteer organization that sponsored the reconstruction of the original fort's guardhouse. The Guardhouse Interpretive Center houses displays and artifacts about military life in the Dakota Territory. Make time to visit and tour the Guardhouse Interpretive Center.

Event admission is free. The park charges a $7 vehicle entrance fee unless a State Park Annual Pass is displayed.

In appreciation of our visitors, Fort Stevenson State Park is proudly offering free daily admission into the park on Sunday, June 26 for all visitors.
