No admission, great spot to take pictures, great views of the WHOLE area. The park is across the street and up many very steep steps. Not sure if their is another way up if you are carrying a child/ have a stroller or are w/ someone handicap.

We stopped by as a break from a roadtrip. The dinosaurs look pretty special, but the view from the hills isn't bad. Entertaining little stop on the journey, and free.

I did enjoy the views from the top, stairs not so much. Kids did love it and they ran wild from dinosaur to dinosaur. Definitely a go-to for kids!

Very nice little side trip while in Rapid City. At the top of a hill with a nice view of the town. Had a fun 50's feel but it's free so you can't complain! Overall a fun side trip.

Of all the spectacular sights, this is NOT one of them. The dinosaur models are very old and there are only 6 of them. My son loves dinosaurs, but said this was 'dumb'.

It's fun. The dinos aren't all that impressive but it is very very fun if you climb to the top and go over near the cell tower and look over the city. You can most like find your hotel/house with ease!

We stopped here to eat our picnic lunch after going to Mt. Rushmore. The gift shop has 2 picnic tables outside, perfect place to take a break from a long day of driving. The kids, Dad and I climbed the steep stairs up to see the dinosaurs. Quick, fun and felt just a little adventurous. Inside the gift shop you... More

This has nostalgia as I was first here as a child over 50 years ago. Try to stop for good memories when in the area. A rapid city landmark since 1936 and still free. Gift shop/snack bar is very nice and friendly.

It's been over 24 years since we brought our kids here on vacation and we were shocked it is still there. It's not fancy but worth the time.
