This has been around since I was little. They are big green dinosaurs. There are a lot of stairs. Great for picture taking. Has a great souvenir shop. Wonderful prices

This is just a tiny little park with huge cement dinosaurs, but the view is wonderful and usually no one there but us. A lovely place for lunch.

this place is up on the mountain. rough roads to get to it. but well worth the trip as it is free, and more importantly, you can see on both sides of the mountain. love it clean store.

The park itself was so-so but the view of Rapid City and the Black Hills was awesome. The dinosaurs are cartoonish and the climb is a bit much if you're going just for the dinos.

Fun to go back to a place that we visited in the 1970's. Girls enjoyed crawling up on the dinosaurs. Pretty twisty drive there. Saw a deer on road on way back.

There really isn't much to do at this place. You basically climb a bunch of stairs to go up a hill to get a better look at the dinosaurs. They are pretty old and not really safe for small kids to climb onto. Then you climb back down. The place seemed to appeal to older kids (8+) that were brave/crazy... More

I would only say to stop if you have young kids because the will get a kick out of seeing the Dinosaurs and it's free. My 5 year old enjoyed it for about 15 minutes, the 11 year old not so much.
