  • A short 20 minute drive from Williston, Fort Union is full of history as well as scenic and pictorial. Take a drive, spend a few hours and utilize the very able and friendly park service staff!  more »
  • Go back in time to 1800 to 1830 when the buckskinners have their rendezvous. The history is easily grasped. The bookstore is adequate. The best time to go is during a re-enactment weekend.  more »

  • My daughter and I loved visiting Fort Union Trading Post. We made it a little detour on our drive from Devil's Tower National Monument to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It was a great way to learn about frontier trading. The Junior Ranger--sorry, Junior Trader--program was one of the best. In all, give yourself a couple of hours to see everything. The rangers were very nice and knowledgeable. It's definitely worth a stop on a trip across the northern U.S.
  • An interesting place to visit and learn about the history of the peoples in this area. Lots of things to see, the visitors center is full of great gift ideas.
  • Cool old landmark in the middle of nowhere. Made the detour on our trip just to break up the drive across North Dakota and Montana. Worth checking out if you're into history and the frontier.
  • If you like history, this is certainly a place to check out.
  • First visit the other day, I loved it. Lots of history
