There are several different types of dinosaur made of cement. although it was fun to visit because of time constraints I would have visited something different. If you have a lot of time. It is nice to see.

The winding Skyline Drive leads to this roadside park that is up a steep flight of stone steps. About half a dozen dinosaur sculptures dot the hill to star in your pictures, but the best pictures are of the amazing views of Rapid City and the surrounding hills. The seasonal gift shop across the street had a good selection of... More

We had a great time visiting the dinosaurs, they are a great reminder of times past. In addition to the dinosaurs, we were very surprised at the incredible view we had of the Rapid City area. It truly felt as if we were "on top of the world' looking down. Yes, it's a bit cheesy...but it's fun and the views... More

Fun for the whole family (except teenagers may find it "lame")...Hike up the hill, which is not a difficult walk, to find the dinosaurs ! I have pictures of myself sitting on Stegosaurus in the 1950's and pictures of my grandchildren sitting on him in the 1990's....soon will have some of the great grandchildren ...... and the place hasn't changed...

Don't miss this with your small kids! You can see all of Rapid City. Pretty cool for little ones, and historic. And free, with an adorable gift shop!

Something free is good. This park is high on a hill in the city and offers great views of the area but the main attraction are the dinosaurs. Climb on and take lots of pictures. There is a nice gift shop too.

Since we had an hour to kill while in Rapid City, we felt obligated to visit Dinosaur park. It was worth the uphill drive and the hundred or so step climb to see them close up. It was a beautiful day and so the view from on top was even more rewarding. The creatures themselves were realistic, in terms of... More

We trekked up the steps to our granddaughter's delight and she got to look, touch and climb on the dinosaurs. Some educational value, stunning views and a great gift shop with all beef hot dogs + drink for $1.69 AND hard ice cream for $1.89.

Free to public. Lots of steps to get to top. Kids climb and sit on the stone dinasaurs where you need your camera! Gift shop. The view from up top is awesome. Their are several walk trails thru the park area, you may need to drive a little thru skyline drive to see trails.

Winding road leads to this attraction at the highest point in Rapid City, providing a great view of the city. You have to climb several flights of stairs from the parking lot to enjoy this view as well as see the so-called "life-like" dinosaurs. Kids seemed to enjoy them! There is also a gift shop with a lot of the... More
