  • You can’t miss this attraction. Stop and take a walk through the petrified park. Several interesting picture spots.  more »
  • One of many stops in the area. Great small SD community. The real North West. Park is a sight to see. Museum is a great step back in time. Absolutely fantastic  more »
  • Successfully convinced my friends to come here on the final leg of our road trip. Well worth the quick stop. It is obviously nothing breathtaking, but it is a pleasant roadside attraction, and if you are in the area, there’s no reason not to check it out. Very cool arrangements of petrified wood everywhere that breaks to monotony of your typical local park. Furthermore, the museum inside provides an interesting hodgepodge of historical prairie artifacts.
  • This was a very quaint stop along my drive home from the west. My friends and I kind of just stopped because we wanted to stretch our legs, but it was a worthwhile stop. The petrified wood was awesome and the museum (and museum curators) were amazing. So much history in something 99.9% of people will never see, think, or hear about in their entire lives. Stop if you have the chance. Places like this have a lot more to offer than most people give them credit for.
