The views of the Tower are just unbelieval. We hiked the Tower Trail and took pictures of each side. Even saw some climbers attempting the top. The is a must visit.

Detoured slightly to see this and were glad we did! Make time to walk the 1.3 mile base trail; the views are great. If you're lucky you may see eagles - we did. Parking can be a challenge.

I was awestruck to see this in person. Don't really know how to explain the deeply quieting feeling I got when I saw the tower. The rangers there are helpful and knowledgeable. We drove about 60 minutes out of our planned area to see this...More

This is one of those must see stops if you are on a road trip in the Black Hills. The tower is very impressive. The tower trail is also very scenic. Be sure to look for climbers.

In 1906 President Theodore Roosevelt Declared this the 1st National Monument. The Ranger’s tower talk was interesting. (Confirmed Close Encounters only filmed ~ 10 mins.) Enjoyed and needed the walk around the base after the drive from Cody. There were at least 6 climbers. Look...More

Background scenes for the movie were filmed here. Impressive rock formation that can be seen for miles before one gets there. Typical National Park fees apply. Worth the drive to get there.

There is a small parking lot at the Devils Tower Visitor's center (West side of Devils Tower) and it is adjacent to the trail head that circles the Tower. There were parking spaces in March when we were there, but open... More

Did not see one near Devils Tower, but I recall seeing a lake in the Black HILLS in South Dakota?
