  • This almost unique collection of fossils from the Jurassic period is exceptional in its state and manner of preservation and the information it provides tourists and visitors of all ages. 
  • Well worth the drive, even from the city to visit. All sorts of cool stops in the Park including petroglyphs and Josie's cabin. The quarry is an amazing place to see at least once in your life, and kids will love how the rangers interact and talk about dinosaurs with them.
  • The only thing we didn't care for was the need to ride a trolley up to this spot. It seemed really unnecessary, but it did give us the opportunity to take our time there, and walk the Fossil trail back. Overall, a lot of fun, once you get past all the kids and rude parents with strollers (these are the same people that text and drive).
  • The visitor center is ok. They have a short video that gives you a little history to the quarry. They also have a small but decent gift shop where you can buy fake dinosaur bones. Make sure to get your National Park Services book stamped. They have free shuttle rides every 15 minutes to the quarry. The quarry is a MUST SEE!
  • Wish we had more time to be there. At first my spouse did NOT want to do this thought it was dumb BUT once we got there wow what a transformation in attitude. Extremely enjoyed.
  • Great gift shop, introductory film and helpful staff. The shuttle bus to the quarry runs from here.
