Pipestone National Monument Reviews & Ratings

  • I've been here three times in my life and this monument is one of my favorites. The grounds are beautiful and great for birding. Take your time in the Interpretive Center and learn of the Native pipe stone trade through the nation.

  • A very nice National monument with a great history of the native Americans. The rangers were very knowledgeable and friendly. We couldn't spend a lot of time in the museum because we had our dog with us but it was nice from what we could tell. The circle trail was very nice with lots to see and learn about. The junior ranger program was great too. Definitely worth a stop!

  • My grandma took me here 20 years ago and I thought it was super cool. The trails are fun and it's honestly neat to see what prairie vegetation is like without the farming. Being able to speak with native stone carvers is something you just have to do. Take plenty of pictures and don't leave without a souvenir, they are too inexpensive and you'll regret it if you don't. Plan on camping in the area soon.

  • Pipestone keeps upgrading their premise. When we last visited in 2010, there was only a dirt path to follow. Now, the path was paved, which was great as my youngest was in a stroller. The normal exhibit room was down, as they are preparing for new exhibits. And, the Junior Ranger program was lots of fun for my kids.

  • A remarkable place. Rarely is there a great waterfall tucked in an oasis of trees in the middle of a prarie. Park staff is awesome! To many good things to say. Just go and experience it
