Fort Stevenson State Park is a state park in McLean County, North Dakota, south of the community of Garrison. The park occupies a peninsula on the north side of Lake Sakakawea and offers fishing, boating, camping, and picnicking.
Activities and facilities
The park has more than eight miles of non-motorized trails for hiking, biking and cross-country skiing. A half-mile trail winds through the park arboretum.
Visitors will find a partial reconstruction of Fort Stevenson, the 19th-century Missouri River fort from which the park takes its name. The site of the original fort lies about two miles southwest, below the waters of Lake Sakakawea.
Boaters can rent slips at two marinas. For overnight stays, the park offers camping cabins and a large campground (138 sites).
