    Wow. The Minnesota Historical Society has done a fabulous job with the interpretive center, tour and layout of the Petroglyphs site. I thought the 4,000 year old temples and tombs I saw in Egypt were ...  more »

    Hard to believe that these were found on these outcropping of stone. Engravings tell us a story of long ago. Guides have some good tales too  more »

    We really enjoyed our visit to the Jeffers Petroglyphs. The guided tour is 45 minutes long and very interesting and informative. Many of the glyphs are difficult to see, but the tour with the park guide helps a great deal in spotting them. I'd also recommend taking the long trail back after the tour to see the tracks from the old stage coach line and the rock that has been worn smooth by bison using it to scratch their coats.

    Amid the prairie grasses are islands of uncovered rock, where American Indians left petroglyphs — You will also find guided tours available. Another small piece of American history with a powerful story.

    Very historical place to visit. Worth the drive from Minneapolis. My 2 boys really enjoyed identifying the carvings.

    I've always wanted to visit this site and am glad I did! Beautiful prairie site as well. Our interpreter went out of her way to explain the pictographs.

    Beautiful place to visit. Best to go early morning or dusk.
