Neat visitor center to learn about the origional people, a functional group house lodge with replica artifacts inside, the walk along the river loop to see where villages once were, seeing where Sacajawea spent time as a preteen, excellent visitor center movie.

Great center and visuals. A bit of a walk, 1/4 to 1/2 mile depending on what village site you walk to. Bone and flint nappings visible in the ground (please dont take them. Its illegal and selfish). Another must stop for lewis and clark. (Where they met sacagewea)

Andrew Westberg

I woke up one day and said hey, I feel like driving across a prarie for hours just so I can see all 3 national parks in ND. Knife river was great. They were able to obtain a description of the village and village life from a woman that lived there. Think great grandma telling her great grandson the stories way back in the early 1900's. You can walk into a traditional dome house and get an authentic feel of life way back when. I even managed to see a new bird to add to my life list.

Stephen Zahradnik

Great history to be had. Try to visualize life here in the 1790s. Camping is close by and the trails are great! Nice museum!

Steve Baranski

Marie Mott

Great family spot

Nathan Piercy

The indoor display has kid-friendly "PLEASE TOUCH" signs all over. The place is very well-kept, and the staff are friendly. The earth lodge is a unique experience - you can go inside and look at the staged living area and see the structure of the lodge. It appears to have been constructed the old fashioned way - right down to the sticks making up the roof over your head. A real must-see! The trail to the river is well-maintained and there are sturdy rest benches every few hundred yards. The actual view on the trail calls for a little more imagination to enjoy it, and (in my opinion) wasn't quite worth the walk on a hot day. On the whole, I would recommend stopping here if you're in the area. Plan for 1.5 - 2 hours for indoor learning, going in the lodge, and walking the trail.

Initially I stopped here for the cancellation stamp in my national parks book, but this stop was so much better than I expected! Easily one of my favorites. Fascinating earth house model, beautiful grassy area with visible mounds where these homes used to stand (and had collapsed), extremely helpful and kind rangers, and a great museum with lots of interesting bits of information. We even got to see some archeologists in action while we were there! Lovely and interesting place I would highly recommend to everyone!

Marcia Hadding

A great look back into history! A nice informative video told from Buffalo Bird Womens life. Glad we made the trip to visit.

Julie Parrish

Topher Kersting

My daughter and I spent a few hours here learning about the Northern Plains Indians. The exhibits in the visitor center are very well done, and the trails are well maintained. The volunteers were very helpful, assisting my daughter with getting started with her Junior Ranger book. This was a very worthwhile diversion on our trip across North Dakota.
