“Great free park for kids”
Review of Dinosaur Park

Dinosaur Park
Reviewed 28 June 2018

Did I mention it's free. There are a lot of steps for adults, 85 or so, but it is for kids. They get to climb on the dinosaurs and mess around. The views are for adults and they are fantastic. Their is a visitor center with some food, but we didn't go in. Just went for the views.

First of all, the drive to the park was actually way more cool than we realized it would be! Curvy and winds on top of the ridge- some really neat views! But our kids just LOVED this little park. From 1.5 years to the 12 year old! And us adults enjoyed it, too. The kids got to climb around on the dinosaurs and they just really had a blast. I think that was the highlight of our trip for my 2.5 year old as he still is talking about seeing the big dinosaurs. :)

The drive "UP" to the top is curvy, but the views are spectacular. Kids can climb on the dinos. They do have a visitor center at the top, which we didn't go into.

We stayed at a lovely old fashioned motel "Big Sky Lodge" just down the road (see my review). The wonderful owner told us about this park that we had in all our trips to Rushmore had never heard of. It was a highlight for our kids. Once you walk up the stairs the view is really worth the trek. You are on the top of a mountain. Being older we took it much slower than our rambunctious grandkids. It is a little ways away from Rushmore but worth the trip. This Park--listed on the "National Register of Historic Places" was quite a find. The obligatory gift shop adjacent to the parking lot. We found REASONABLY priced souvenirs and hotdogs, icecream and pop. And really nice people that work there. A really great deck with tables with a super view is attached. A lot of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a fun stop on our way home from a week in the Black Hills. Our 5 year old grandson had fun climbing the dinosaurs.
