The best camping near Frontier Villages guide



The Frontier Villages are a throwback to the frontier days. Once upon a time, North Dakota was dotted with villages, and this historical park has become the new home for many of them. Original structures were moved out here, and they’re chock full of fascinating artifacts that give you a glimpse into the life of a prairie pioneer. There’s even stagecoach and pony rides Memorial Day through Labor Day! And, lest we forget… Wild West Shootouts every other Saturday during the summer. Score some nearby camping at the Frontier Fort Campground, en route to the village (and the world’s largest buffalo monument, a Jamestown favorite).

When to go

The ideal time to visit Frontier Villages is during the spring and fall months, when the weather is mild and the natural beauty is at its peak. Summer brings warmth and longer days, perfect for extended exploration, but be prepared for larger crowds. Winters can be harsh, so plan accordingly if you venture during this season.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately for the season to ensure a comfortable visit.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, and plan your trip within this timeframe.
  • Stay informed about any trail closures or area restrictions to avoid inconvenience.
  • Accessibility varies across the park, so inquire ahead if you require special accommodations.
  • While some facilities may be available, always bring essential supplies, including water and snacks.
