Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park
Join us this summer for Fort Abraham Lincoln's Star Parties. The event will be held at the Fort Abraham Lincoln Cavalry Square / Parade Ground from 10:00 pm to 12:00 am. Please plan on arriving a little early to get a good observation spot. Sunset will be at 9:41 pm if you want to arrive before darkness descends.
All ages are welcome! Park staff and members of the Bismarck Astronomy Club will instruct participants on how to operate a telescope, how to find stars, constellations, planets, moon craters, and more. Some telescopes & binoculars will be provided, but if you have your own telescope or a pair of binoculars, we invite you to bring them along.
If you have one, please bring a red-light flashlight as red light does not interfere with our eyes ability to see celestial objects and stars in the night sky. You're welcome to bring a regular flashlight, but park staff asks that they be kept on low beam.
Bathrooms will be available for use in the Commissary building adjacent from the parade ground.
*Schedule is subject to change.

The event is free of charge and open to the public. An annual or daily vehicle permit is required for park entrance and can be purchased online or at the park.
