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

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.

We were staying at Big Sky Lodge, you should to, and seen the sign for the Dinosaur Park just down the road. So we drove there. Here is something that was built in the early 30's and still there and in very nice shape. The city takes very good care of the site. You need to remember that in 1930's... More

On the National Register of Historic Places, this little park (up a super steep hill with tons of stairs) isn't accurate. The dinos look like something Fred Flinstone would ride. But, it's loads of fun and completely free. My suggestion: Get a photo in front of the T-Rex pretending to be terrified he will eat you.
