The history of Dinosaur Park is great and the views are amazing. You can see for miles! It provides you with excellent photography opportunities.

What a great place to take kids and think you are teaching them something about the past along with the fact they can climb all over the small dinosaurs. This was a site we settled for a simple hot dog and chips for lunch picnic. A needed break!

I'm not sure it technically qualifies as a park, but it is an okay way to kill 45 minutes or so of your day in Rapid City. If you like large balls of twine, petrified rocks, "Carhenge", and other attractions of that ilk, you will probably find yourself here at one point or another. Other than the large statue shown...

It is a very fun place to go to. We have made it a tradition each time we go out to the Rapid City area. I would especially suggest it to families with young kids, but I still enjoy the park and its view as an adult.

This park was not really much fun for our boys. It was quite a climb to the top and it is a good view once you get to the top but the dinosaurs are not really much to see for young children that are not too interested in dinosaurs in the first place. I enjoyed seeing it just because I... More

My family likes to go to Dinosaur Park. My kids like to crawl around on top of the dinosaurs. There are a bunch of steps up to get to the park. There is a very good view of Rapid City from the top. The park is free. They do have a nice gift shop at the parking lot. They sell... More

Nice walk, what view. And dinosaurs! Don't turn back, continue on the road for more wonderful sights. This was a great introduction to the mountains for a flatlander as we started our Black Hills and Badlands tour. There are lots of steps

A great view of the city and surrounds right in the middle of town. Big fibreglass dinosaurs and who doesn't like dinosaurs!!! there's also a gift shop and café. Worth a stop if you have young kids
