This is a unique and interesting experience. We only spent a couple of hours and wished we had more time. Everybody will find fish fossils. The staff was nice and did not overcharge us. A few words of... more »
You can dig by the hour for $30 or 4 hours for $75 or 8 hours for $100. You get to keep as many as you find except for rare species. I found about 12 whole fish of varying size in about 3 hours. I als... more »
魚とか海藻などの小さめの化石がボコボコ出て来ます。 道具は貸してもらえますが、砂で服や靴がかなり汚れるので、汚れても良い格好で行った方が良いです。 あと目的地までの道が舗装路ではなく砂利道で、勾配が急な部分もあるので大雨の後はかなり運転に気を使うと思います。 more »Gang bashed comes to fossils such as fish or seaweed. Might as well go in dirty dirty clothes and shoes are pretty in the sand could lend tools, so even better. I think there after until the destination path is not paved road, gravel road steep part after heavy rains rather use driving out.
This was one of my dreams to visit this location in Wyoming. George who runs the place did not disappoint. If you're having trouble finding fossils, he'll get next to you and dig until you find some. George is very knowledgeable to the fish fossils at this location. You will not be disappointed and you will leave with fossils. We came from Texas in May 2017 and we're already planning another trip to Fossil Safari before the end of the summer. 5 stars for sure !
Amazing place! But... I had a bit of a different experience there. First off, I didn't have that great of luck in finding any fossils. I ended up with two fish fossils which were missing the head. It honestly just comes down to the amount of luck you have combined with the amount of skill you posses, and I apparently didn't have tons of either; while many people in my group were finding dozens of complete fish and some other cool little fossils. In addition to that, I was really picky about the fossils I did find; I only settled for the best fish because there were tons and tons of fossils. The place was overflowing with them. Despite my low haul, though, I had a AWESOME time! The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful and I learned so much about the geology and practices of fossil hunting. I never got bored, having the motivation to keep going in hopes of finding more fossils. Shortly after I found my first and only fossils, I dropped a huge rock on my finger and cut it open. I went to the owner with a very bloody gash. He got my finger cleaned up and wrapped up good, and helped to stop me from passing out due to shock (I can't stand the sight of blood). Needless to say, I was very impressed by the service we got, the water and sodas, and great first aid. I, of course, was done with digging after that, but I'm sure if I hadn't injured myself I would've gotten some more awesome fossils. Would I go back again? Definitely!
A cool place to fossil with good staff. Worth the price as most, if not all, fossils found can be kept.
Only stayed four hour but got a great haul! I plan on doing two full days my next trip. It is worth it and you find so many good fossils. Tip: work along the wall, going down the columns. You will eventually hit the good layer that yields the best fossils.
Our 2nd trip from California. George is great and we found some nice complete pieces. Can't wait for our 2017 trip
