  • My wife and I visited here in midwinter in 1986. There was a blanket of snow everywhere. Sound was muffled. I walked on a trail that wound around by some rocks. It was serene. No one else was around. ...  more »

  • Good learning experience. Not a whole lot to see, but definitely worth the visit. We were only there for a few minutes right before they closed, so didn't get to see everything. Walked part of the trail, but didn't know we were supposed to pay admission, oops. $7 admission charge for adults seems reasonable.
  • An out-of-the-way park and not very big, but extremely interesting. The history and spiritual importance of the site was unexpected and the whole family thought it was worth visiting.
  • Pleasant trail, easy walk, natural grasses and lovely fall within this National Monument site. Museum, pipestone carving demonstration and knowledgeable rangers.
  • Sacred space handled with reverence. Informative visitor's center and movie with a lovely loop to hike.
  • Loved the history. Beautiful rock formations, and waterfall. Great place for pictures.
