The area is neat with giant dinosaur statues, and the park has a great view of Rapid City and the surrounding areas. Don't plan on spending hours there, but it's a great stop to see a unique view with fun photo opportunities.

While there were only 5 dinosaurs actually up on the hill, they were cool to see and take pictures of, especially the largest one. Nice, panoramic views of Rapid City and the surrounding Black Hills area as well. Gift shop was great, had a large selection of Rapid City and Black Hills merchandise. Definitely worth a stop!

The owner of the hotel we were staying at recommended we stop at Dinosaur Park. It's a bit of a twisty road to get up there and it was hot the afternoon we visited so we didn't venture off the paved sidewalks, but it's an interesting place with a half dozen concrete dinosaurs created in the 30's. The real star... More

Dinosaur park needs some help!! Lots of dinosaurs are broken and need a good paint job! Not worth the drive up there to see.

Dinosaurs were falling apart went to the gift shop everything was way expensive. We ordered 2 hot dogs and 4 corn dogs. Hot dogs had been sitting in water all day and tasted like rubber. Corn dogs were frozen foster farm corn dogs and microwaved and were still cold in the center. Glad it was free attraction cause i wouldn't... More

A cute area with nice views of the city on all sides. Several stairs to get to the top. Littler kids will enjoy more. Nice little shop at bottom to give you a chance to spend some $. Their ice cream and monster cookies were great and at a very reasonable price. Worth an hour of your time if you... More

The gift shop, the view, the nature trail, the free admission, what's not to love about this place. It is only a about a 30 minute stop but well worth the drive up. The gift shop was quite reasonable priced too. These are fun, absolutely unrealistic looking dinosaurs along a pretty good climb up and down a big hill. Loved... More

Okay for a LITTLE kid's attention span. But after 15 minutes, you've done all there is to do and will be ready to head out. Very little shade so beware if you go in the middle of summer. I think we'llbe skipping it next time.

Dinosaur Park was free and interesting for kids. Large concrete statues of about 5 popular dinos on top of mountain. Not museum quality but kiddos liked anyway. Great view of area from there. Short stop though. You basically walk up and around statues and are done. 15 minutes maybe. There is a gift shop in parking lot.

It's a scary drive up a steep hill. And then you walk up the rest of the hill via stair case to the green dinosaurs! Our family enjoyed this pit stop on our way to Mount Rushmore.
