It was everything we hoped and more! Really glad that we made the visit in November, even though we had been warned that it was a bad time of year to visit. Temperatures were in the 20s and as we arrived snow began to fall....More

If you’ve come all the way and are physically able, take the time to hike around the base of the Tower. You get an opportunity to experience the Tower at every angle and to spend the time necessary to truly appreciate this marvel of geology....More

It isn't my favorite of the National Parks/Monuments, but it is well worth the effort to see it. The hike around the tower was a little more than my group of ladies wanted to undertake.

There are things in the area that you have to see to comprehend, the Devil's Tower and the Badlands are two. Don't miss them. Also, I LOVED the prairie dog preserve at the base of the tower. I was able to get close to them...More

A lot of reviews describe this place as "okay" or "not worth the stop," but the opposite is true! It was well worth the drive into Wyoming! The monument is the left over inside remains of an ancient volcano. Native Americans hold the site as...More

Agreed that parking at the monument, especially a large vehicle, is a challenge. I agree with others about parking the motorhome. Also, though you did not ask, I'd suggest not just going into the Monument, but also taking... More
