  • You get to look for fossils. We found leaves, a spider and the grandkids were enthralled. If you are looking for something to keep the grandkids busy this is the place.

  • Fun place to take the kids to learn about fossils.
  • In just a couple of hours I found an excellent example of a beech leave, a flower, a good example of Lomatia lineata, and a tiny, tiny wasp. It's a great place to look for insects and leaves.
  • I can't say much. Piles and Piles of rubble. Two pot head women take money, give you scraper, razor and show you what you can't keep. It took me about 5 min to realize there were nothing in those piles of crap. When I said something they brought out a few good pieces from the back and that was the only thing that was worth keeping.(couple of leaves, sticks and so on. was a waste of half a day. Should have done something else that day. Remember, you will be going through piles of broken shale that had been picked through and picked through.
  • One of the last places in Colorado to legally find fossils. There is a modest fee to get in though. Highly recommended for any fossil hunting enthusiasts.
