Fort Stevenson State Park is a North Dakota state park located in McLean County, 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. 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.
