  • My wife really LOVES petrified wood. I believe it's her favorite, so we definitely had to stop here since it was literally off of I-90 and was on the way home. The cost to view it was definitely cheap...  more »

  • Family vacation and saw this place. Didn't know what to expect and didn't look like much but worth the stop! Neat petrified woods, rocks, & fossils. Lots of cool and inexpensive souvenirs
  • First off between Wall Drug and the Petrified Gardens, they know how to get your attention with billboards! They did a great job. It's probably a bit pricey for a family, but overall if you're a rock lover it's worth the trip. I think it's bargain though to get a pound of rocks for $3, especially in a very touristy place! They have a crazy gift shop inside as well, that's definitely worth a look.
  • Paid $6 to see fossils and petrified wood. Honestly, the signs throughout were my absolute favorite.
  • Very interesting. Didn't know this could happen to the wood.
  • Many old specimens from millions of years ago. They also include a chart trying to fit biblical characters into the history
