"The Mammoth Site" Hot Springs by 807Wheaton

Hot Springs Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 17 photos

A prehistoric dig & Time travel to the Ice Age

We really enjoyed this stop. We had to drive through Custer State Park to get to Hot Springs. It costs $12 for a 7 day pass in CSP. We were given a guided tour through the indoor excabation site that features fossils of 58 Columbian and wooly mammoths.
We paid a Seniors rate of $14.99 for the tour and museum. We had never been to anything like this before. We saw ongoing work in the dig.
