Devils Den is a rock formation that can be explored by the whole family. Located in the middle of Gettysburg National Military Park below Little Round Top. The rock formation is interesting enough to warrant a 2 hour excursion and is a great place for children to get some energy out.

Drive around the park and see where the war took place. This place is especially beautiful. It's huge, so even if it's crowded, there's plenty of breathing room. It's an amazing piece of history with plaques that explain what happened and where it happened to...More

We ride here on the Harleys very often. The view and the history of this place is mesmerizing. The whole area is sobering but I particularly enjoy this high elevation spot, for the experience.

Fantastic place to let young explorers play on rocks--come prepared with plenty of supervision, pants that can get dirty, and sturdy shoes. Many groups of kids could play an hour or more on the interesting features if their supervising adults are brave enough. Fascinating stories...More

Devil's Den is amazing, but I do wish there was someone to monitor the behavior of the general public. This is a place of respect, and I have seen and heard groups of visitors yelling and screaming while hopping across the rocks. There should be...More

A good opportunity to get out and stretch your legs. The view is worth it. To stand in the tower and look out over the rocks and fields makes my heart ache to think of the horrors those men faced. This is a must see.

Been to Gettysburg a number of times but never went to this area. Our bus tour stopped here and we got out. The view is really good. As our guide explained to us what happened here, history became more real to us!

It is sobering to be up close on the battlefield and be in the middle of a place where so many men lost their lives.

Great place to kill time with kids. Lots of rocks and crevices for the kids to explore. Parking can be difficult during busy season though. Well worth a visit when at Gettysburg.

No, but I highly advise getting a guide or even buying the DIY CD you put in your car.
