This park is in the middle of nowhere but somewhat on our route from Casper Wy to the Black Hills. We saw plenty of high plains emptiness as our GPS guided us to a long dead end on a dusty gravel road Once we backtracked...More

Fascinating geological park - the guide is worth picking up from the entrance gate, very informative and suitable for all except young children. It's quite a drive down the gravel road, but in good condition - tip for photographers, some great old farmsteads on the...More

Wonderful state park but hard to get to. The road going in is bad in places but after you cross the railroad and cattle guard it is straight washboard. The larger toadstools have already fallen down but the ones still standing are neat. It is...More

After a 14 mile drive on dirt roads we arrived at Toadstool Geologic park. Erosion has toppled most of the formations. There's a mile hike with nine markers, we made it to three and turned around. While interesting, I'm not so sure it's worth the...More

This was such a unique place to explore. It was a little off the beaten path, but so worth the trip. Had a great time walking the trails throughout the park. Truly amazing the wonders of nature.

Another item in the Reader's Digest guide "Off the Beaten Path" that was a gem. You really have to want to see this as it is about 20 miles of dirt road to get to but is worth it. This is the Nebraska version of...More
