DISCOVER TOADSTOOL GEOLOGICAL PARK

The Toadstool Geological Park is located north of Crawford in the Oglala National Grassland. The Park is named for its unique rock formations—giant, narrow clay pedestals topped with slabs of sandstone that resemble toadstool mushrooms. Many of the rocks preserve fossils and footprints of extinct species like tortoises, rhinos, saber-toothed cats, early three-toed horses, camels and lizards. Hikers frequently comment that the colorful, odd-shaped formations have a “moonscape” appearance.
