  • This park is a gem hidden in South Indiana. The largest collection of fossils I've ever even considered. Just amazing and a very short trip from Louisville. Nice to visit to break up Whiskey tours.

  • Great interpretive center, beautiful views of the Ohio River and Ohio River Falls, very cool in-place fossils easy to view! Helpful volunteers hang out and can identify fossils and help you find the really cool, hard to find, fossils.

There is plenty of places to hike ands great photo opportunities. I can't believe how many fossil beds there are! The only con I have would be that there is a lot of trash around there. But overall a great park!
  • Cool park with a great view of downtown Louisville. The falls are a bit of an oversell but still worth the stop to stretch your legs and take in a solid city view
  • I have been two times. Both times with great weather. Needless to say I have great memories from here. The place is a must to visit if you are in the area. Great place for picnics.
  • Many people told me to visit when the water levels were low like August and September. I am sure that more of the incredible fossils would be visible but I was very pleased when we went in July. We saw plenty of fossils and they were much larger and more plentiful than I imagined. These fossil beds are some of the oldest exposed areas around.
