Free family fun at one of the Black Hills’ original tourist attractions, open to the public since 1936!  Dinosaur Park is located on a ridge of sandstone that encircles the Black Hills.  Along this ridge dinosaurs of the Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous have been found.  Not far from the park dinosaur footprints have been found. View the seven life-size concrete replicas of monstrous prehistoric reptiles inhabit the park. As you stand on Dinosaur Park with spectacular 100-mile views and look to the east you can see the South Dakota Badlands.  Most rocks of the Badlands are too young to have dinosaurs preserved, but fossil mammals are superbly represented.  To the west and north of the Black Hills, dinosaurs have been found in great abundance in the basins of Wyoming and on the Northern Great Plains. Seasonal visitor center located onsite.
