    Fun free activity if you enjoy searching for fossils. It's open until 10 but there are no lights so better to go during the day. This can be a quick stop not too far from the highway if you are in the...  more »

    The fossils were great! We really enjoyed it. Going back for a second visit today. Highly recommend this spot! There is no charge to go into the gorge. Short walk from the parking area.  more »

    The Coralville reservoir is a beautiful area of camping and water recreation. It is well maintained by the US government. There are a variety of camping sites available.  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.
