Tourism rates at Fort Abraham Lincoln expected to rise

By  | 

MANDAN, N.D. - Fort Abraham Lincoln, located south of Mandan, had over 120,000 visitors go through their site last year. This year, they are hoping to increase that number.

The fort has already seen snowshoers and ice fishers this season, but they don't officially open their interpretive sites until May 1.

Head Park Ranger Maureen Trnka said the summer time is the busiest time of the year for the fort. "We always hope for more, but we're pretty weather dependent too. The weather has got to corporate, but we're looking for another great year," said Trnka.

Trnka said this season will be a normal touring season and she's looking forward to a nice, busy summer.
