Time of year
We made our way out to this quaint little church. We couldn't wait to see it. It took us a while to find it, as it's in the back of a neighborhood, which was a little odd. Finally, we saw it and then realized it was closed for the season. I'd read so many good things about it…

We are sorry you came in our off season and hope you can return again some day when the gates are open. The gates and non-electric fence are there as a safety precaution to prevent slips and falls in the winter season on our sloping walkways. Thank you for respecting the signs.
Beautiful grounds and loved the stave church. It reminds me of the stave church outside of Laerdal, Norway. The grounds were immaculate, unique gift shop and friendly staff.
Wonderful treasure right in Rapid City! Don't miss it! It is a true treasure! Loved it. I highly recommend going!
Beautiful scenery, beautiful grounds, beautiful buildings and although I didn't pray, I enjoyed the walk around the prayer garden. Far exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend going here if you have the time. Free
The chapel is so unique and it being nestled in the hill was beautiful - there is a good little walk behind the chapel - the "nordic cabin" next to the chapel has great interesting things - the yard had wild turkey strutting around -
