We were able to work this into our schedule on our way to Devil's Tower. As you drive through a cow pasture, with cows. You enter his domain. Wayne is there to greet you and talk about his work. He started in his blacksmiths shop...More

We had fun exploring the world of Wayne's art on the roadside. Amusing, fascinating, bizarre, twisted and outside the box! It's a must-see for anyone who loves doing something out of the ordinary. Stop and appreciate the little poems and stories that accompany his pieces...More

The park is located about a half mile off I-90 via exit 374 so, very easy to get to. The sculptor is the person in the shed greeting visitors. Friendly guy who seems to love dogs. There are over 50 sculptures in the park. Some...More

I was completely disappointed by this place. It's tiny, costs $20+ for a family of four and most of the art looked slapped together. We didn't even go in, just looped through the entrance and took a shot of the bull from the interstate. Not...More

The whole family had fun exploring the interesting sculptures in this park. Each sculpture was accompanied by a quote or poem that inspired (or was inspired by?) the sculpture. The artist was there taking admission and was very friendly and willing to talk about his...More

The driveway to get there is long, winding, and bumpy gravel. I wasn't sure if it was such a good idea to be driving it in our 1986 Barth motorhome with a motorcycle strapped to the back. I'm so glad we did. Many of the...More

We took our 7 and 3 year old and they are still creeped out. The pictures online don't show all the satanic sculptures like the "dead" person hanging from inside the bull that my kids found when looking for the bats. If I would have...More

I had read about this place so we stopped on a whim. So glad we did! Don't let the $8 admission scare you away. The sculptures are wonderful and the poetry accompanying is at times deep and others whimsical. This is so worth the stop!

This was a really interesting place to visit These gigantic sculptures are right there for you to walk up to and touch. The artist was there and he gave us some background on some of the pieces. Just talking to him was worth the stop!...More

Travel distance for Montrose SD to Rapid City is 321 Mi , 4 hr 17 min under normal driving conditions. Additional time should you be lured to stopping at Wall SD and the world famous Wall Drug Store.

He will and can negotiate with you. We had 5 adults and 2 kids. 2 adults said they'd hang back and he said go in for free. Whatever the charge it was nominal and worth it. GO.
