In the summer, Prairie Outpost Park comes alive with historical tours through its variety of buildings. I was fortunate to take visiting family through the one room school house when an elderly gentleman and his family were touring at the same time. The guide had the sense to abandon her 'stock' narrative and allow him to share his memories of... More

We found this walk very cute and interesting but wish they provided more for children. They really need to work on appealing more to travelers with kids.

The picture depicting outpost park is misleading. I moved to Dickinson North Dakota a month ago and the first thing I did was look for the place in the picture needless to say it is nowhere to be found at least not in Dickinson. Very Disappointed!!!!
