  • This is a neat place to visit with family and friends. Kids love trying to find fossils in the gorge. The area is beautiful if you love nature like we do. Highly recommended!  more »

  • The sound of the frogs was almost deafening! Very cool. My hubby and kids were more interested in the ducks, frogs, and grass snakes than the fossils! Short trip for teens but can't beat free walk to ...  more »

  • Easily killed a few hours here fossil hunting and fishing. Our city kids quickly soaked in the outdoors. Don't expect dinosaur bones. Still so fascinating though.
  • Kinda cool to be able to go see actual fossils for free. The fossils aren't big and impressive, that's it's knock. If you are in to geology, this is a good use of your time.
  • Lots of neat fossils to see with signs so you know what you are looking at. Well worth wearing your hiking shoes we found a lot of fun things off the main path.
  • Interesting slice of prehistory. Not very wheelchair accessible but a pleasant place to explore.
  • Many fossils, Iowa River, fishing, good for family visit or just wandering around by your self or with a friend.
