  • This place is more like a Museum because of the quality of their collection of fossils, petrified wood and rocks. By all means stop! So worth it.
  • Neat to see, I don't know if it is worth the admission cost for the petrified wood itself, the more interesting part is the different colored gems under blacklight at the start
  • The gardens were beautiful very friendly staff and you have an opportunity to buy petrified wood and other gems on your way out highly recommend stopping by for a visit
  • Great place, wonderful veiw, and a person gets to be kid a kid.
  • I'm a rock hound who needed to get out of the car. This stop proved very interesting. First, I scrounged the rock pile and came up with an agatized piece of petrified wood (a real "find" $3/lb). Second, owners Kathy and Bob Fugate are great people with a wealth of knowledge about the Badlands area.
