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 decent place to take the kids, stretch your legs and snap a few photo-ops. Admission is free. Plenty of parking space. A quick walk up stairs to see some dinosaur statues. The trip can be as long or short as you want it to be. Honestly, they're just dinosaurs so I went up to check them out while BF... More

Took the grandkids to this attraction. The kids enjoyed crawling on the dinosaurs. Some little ones might be scared because they are large. This was not wheelchair friendly because you have to climb about 50 steps to the top. It was off season so there were not any available bathrooms. There was a picnic table and trash cans. The views... More

We just made a quick trip for old times sake. The dinosaurs are fun to see. It's a good bit of exercise to get up the stairs to the dinosaurs, but the views are well worth it.

I love the dinosaur on the hill. Been staring at it since I was a kid. Worth the drive to see it. Kids love it.

If you want a great view of Rapid City and the surrounding Black Hills this is the place to go. The kids will love the dinosaurs and the adults will love the views. There are a lot a stairs to climb and there is not a handicap access. There is a very nice gift store there that serves small snacks.
