  • Interesting stop. The walkway down to the monument has all of the state flags on it. There is a cabin on the property that is interesting. But the war monument are really good. We saw a flock of wild ...  more »
  • The monument is not the real center of the nation. That is 20 mile from the spot in the middle of a pasture. (There is a pin in the ground incl Flag) That is why the monument was erected in Belle Fourche.

  • To me it was worth the drive to see the expansive prairie. Mind you it is 8 miles off rt. 385 on a dirt road. Be sure to clock the miles when you get off the highway, or you will go by it and have to turn around. Most people won't it is worth it, but I'd you key your mind go you can see the plains as they once were.
  • Who would guess that the Center of the USA is located in South Dakota. You can take a beautiful canyon drive and see the bridal Vail Falls, where I'm sure there has been more than one proposal to marriage at this location. Enjoy the pics.
  • The geographic center of the nation museum and disc golf park is one of my favorite places to go in this beautiful little town. The disc golf course is beautiful and challenging and the Belle fourche river runs right through it making it even more spectacular. They need to maintain the grounds a little better and consider making it 18 holes rather than just 9 because there is ample land and it is rapidly becoming a hot spot for disc golfers from all over the state. The restrooms at the museum are super clean and the employees are knowledge and helpful with any travel inquiries. 5 stars
  • This was an easy quick photo op on a road trip. The museum was close, but the actual memorial is out in public. Easy to get to. Got gas across the street and I was on my way!
  • Loved stopping here! Very kid friendly and offered a cool learning craft about clouds. Kept the kids busy as we continued our journey. The volunteers were knowledgeable about the area and recommend a great place to eat.
