“Kid friendly.”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

A natural phenomenon that stimulates lots of ideas from the family. I have taken my kids there several times for a nice relaxed day and a chance to explore some earth science.

“A big hit with children”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

My 6 and 9 year old grandchildren were delighted. They enjoyed just enough challenge in climbing to feel it was an adventure, and I enjoyed knowing they could roam safely. It is easy enough to climb with them, or sit in the shade and enjoy the laughter.

“NOT just a bunch of rocks - Sept. 2012”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Sorry, George02, but what a great place to explore our earth's geology! The gift shop had a free brochure explaining what these concretions are and how they came to be. Looking out over the Kansas terrain, you see flat land, but then.....there are these sandstone concretions popping up in an area about the size of a couple of football fields and you are amazed - how did they happen to be here, what are they, why aren't they anywhere else, how in the world??? For a mere $3, you are allowed the adventure of discovery, Kansas history, how rough the surfaces are, walking trails, picnicing in a gazebo and jaw dropping amazement. The only thing commercial about this site is the little gift shop and it was closed after Labor Day. There is still a little slot to deposit your $3. Great photo ops, great hide & seek, great day.

“Interesting place to visit”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We stopped in while in Salina and the kids really had fun climbing among the sandstone concretions. If you have a camera there are some really good shots if you look around. If I am out that way I would stop again. Probably would not make a trip just for it though.

“Just a bunch of rocks!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We expected something different I guess. There was a little shack to take your money for admission but really, there was nothing to see but rocks with some signs telling you what they were supposed to look like...ie this is a steamboat, this is a ....
