  • We made a very long and unbelievably monotonous drive from Medora ND to Devils Tower. I read about this park on this site as being on the way and was so glad I did. We had the entire park to ourselves...  more »

  • This state park has a lot of history to it. The rock formations are very interesting. HOWEVER, the majority of the rocks have been defaced by graffiti. There are hundreds of names craved into the rocks. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth seeing. The trails are easy and short. They look great from a distance. For those of you who left your marks, shame on you!
  • An enchanted place, an oasis in the sea of prairie grasses! I always wanted to see this place and finally did! Didn't disappoint! However it is most unfortunate that louts are carving and putting graffiti all over the rocks. Yes, I know the natives and settlers did also, but surely we don't have to add to the eroding of the rocks? Anyways, nice, quiet, calming and peaceful to walk among these rocks and wonder who was here 100 or 200 years ago in the same spot you are standing on?! Drive slowly, stop often and walk around. Bring a lunch and eat in the shade.
  • This is a beautiful park with sand stone formations.
  • The history that can be seen here, geological and human, is almost overwhelming. I'll be stopping here every time I'm through the area.
  • Awesome place to go.
