Capture the Night Sky over Devils Tower

Devil's Tower Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Jason Hatfield

Devils Tower has dark night skies and provides a striking foreground element for shots of the Milky Way.

Devils Tower, also known as Bear Lodge, was the first designated National Monument. Sitting on the edge of the Black Hills, the towering formation of rock is surrounded by ponderosa forest and little civilization. There are numerous places to photograph the night sky in the park, with Tower Trail and W Road providing the best viewpoints. If you plan to light paint the tower you'll need a very strong flashlight due to its size and distance from the trails. The monument's rarely full campground is a great place to relax after a night of photography, but hammocks are no longer allowed.
