The visitor's center is smaller than what you will find at Badlands or Mt. Rushmore, but there are some very nice interpretive displays of the Tower's formation and cultural signifigance. There are clean restrooms out back and a very nice gift shop. The shop is where you will stamp your Parks passport. Here you will also find a nice selection... More

The visitors center at Devils Tower is quite small, but there's a nice gift shop inside as well as displays explaining the geology of the Tower and its significance to Native Americans. If you have kids with you make sure they talk to a Ranger to earn their Junior Ranger badge. Our 10-year-old had a blast filling out the book... More

We stopped in the visitors center to get more info on the history of the tower and get some souvenirs. The rangers and displays were very helpful!

In planning a trip I was looking for a place near Mt Rushmore and saw the Devils Tower just a couple of hours or so away, so I thought that would be a cool place to go. Great choice! Your first view as you approach it from the south is incredible, likely to illicit a cuss word or two! You... More

Very interesting with a nice little shop. The Rangers are very nice and knowledgeable. Right at the base of the trails up to the tower and jump off point for people interested in climbing the tower.

We really enjoyed visiting Devil's Tower. The drive is pictoresque; you can park right beneath the tower. We had our dogs, so we could only walk one at a time around the monument (no dogs allowed, Native American holy site)...it takes about 1 hour. Beautiful stroll among trees and walks around the base...some "earthy" types in birkenstocks and loose clothing... More

The VC is a bit small and seemed crowded on the day of our visit. The restrooms were also located under the building which would be hard for anyone who has difficulty with stairs. The staff and exhibits do a pretty good job of explaining the monument and the native interpretation. There is a Junior Ranger program that's well worth... More

Stephanie was very nice and helpful. The store is small but fun. We do strongly recommend you buy gas frequently out around this area, as we had to drive to Hulett to keep from running out!

The visitor's center is at the foot of the trail. It is worth sticking your head in for the exhibits and the souvenir shop. There is not a separate entrance fee for it, it is included in the park entrance fee. We didn't spend more than 15 minutes in it. Staff were friendly.

While Devil's Tower is a small park, the visitor center does a good job of having exhibits, talks about the areas, and answering visitor's questions about the area. One flight down the stairs is also where the restrooms are. The most interesting thing I found at the visitors center was some of the artwork they had there. The picture of... More
