Pretty spectacular place/structure. It is what you would expect, perhaps greater. Well kept grounds and superb views. It's definitely a must see, must experience place if you are anywhere close to the area. I enjoyed finding a comfortable place to sit and chill and watch the climbers make their way up this towering hunk of stone. Awesome.
Wonderful! We took the Tower trail. It was a nice little hike. The Visitor Center was small but very informative. There is a little booklet that kids can get with activities for them to do. If they complete them, they will get inducted into the Jr. Ranger Program!
Went out of the way to see this again. As an adult, the experience is more amazing. Nature at its best. Park is beautiful and the drive is nice and peaceful. Hotels for those getting there later than expected or those spending more time at the park than originally intended. Take your time. Breathe in the history, mysticism and culture surrounding this magnificent place. It is one of a kind and worth try he journey to see up close.
Oh Wow! Great National Park site with a nice trail around the base, visitor center, spectacular views. This is well worth a stop & well worth a day trip over from the Black Hills. In having visited over 100 parks, we've always wanted to visit this one & finally made it. Expect a $20/car entrance fee and it does get crowded so try to arrive as early as you can.
Initially, we weren't going to come to Devils Tower. I thought it was too far from our location in the Black Hills and didn't want to make the Trek. I am so glad that we did! It's definitely worth the short drive out to the park. The monument walk around the base is all paved and easily able to be navigated by a stroller. Be sure and bring water and sunscreen as one of the sides depending on when you walk will be in the full sun. I would totally recommend doing the monument walk because you get to see the Tower from all angles. To see the rocks that have fallen off, and how large those are, and look up at the tower and realize how massive it really is is truly amazing. There are Ranger guided tours around the base, but you can also walk it by yourself.
