The Mammoth Site is just a stone's throw from Wind Cave, so I decided to burn a couple hours here before my cave tour. It is definitely worth a visit and this is an attraction that is unique. You must visit the Mammoth Site via guided tour, which run pretty frequently. There is a video then a guided tour around the dig site. The pit is kind of grim since this was basically a death trap for loads of mammoths. They would bend down to eat grass, slip in the water, then died trying to get out of the slippery slope. Everyone didn't seem to mind that it was an ancient Saw trap though. If you have the time and are visiting Wind Cave, make the detour down and check it out.
