  • 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!
  • 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.
