  • The Petrified Wood Park takes up a full block on Main Street of Lemmon, SD. The petrified wood was collected in the early 1930's, much from my great grandparent's farm just north of Lemmon. It is on d...  more »

  • This is an amazing park. It just feels enchanted with all the petrified wood structures. I have never seen so much petrified wood in one place. Wish the museum / gift shop would have been open when I was there. Was definitely a sight to see. Also check out John Lopez, metal artist just a few doors down to the north
  • A beautiful Park and structures made of petrified wood. As well as a museum of the history of Lemmon South Dakota. Everything is free to visit.
  • The Petrified Wood Park in Lemmon, SD is one of the most unique and interesting places I've ever visited. What a travesty that more people don't know about one of the United States' very best museums/art exhibits! If you travel through Lemmon, it's a must stop. If you're travelling through South Dakota, it's more than worth the trip up from the interstate. I know most people won't go out of their way for this real treasure, but they honestly should.
  • Amazing. Worth the trip if you are interested in rocks, fossils or WPA era America.
  • If you are a rock Hound this is the place for you. A lot of different fossils and petrified rock. Huge petrified trees.
