  • They have a lovely small museum and shop. You can rent their rock hammer and chisel or bring your own. It wasn't too busy when we went and it is hard to walk up the fossil site in the loose shale but ...  more »
  • I have gone fossil digging before but not in Washington, and my 8 year old really wanted to try - so I looked for a place and was glad I found one! By 10 am it was already pretty hot, and most of the ...  more »
  • Splitting rocks in the hot (June) sun was not all that much fun, but the "finds" were interesting. My grand daughter (10) had fun and made new friends at the same time.  more »

  • fun activity! amazing staff. you'll also get a couple of bonus museums on site. spending a couple of hours there you will dig out something and learn a ton from the very knowledgeable staff.
  • Great to place to visit in the middle of nowhere! Very friendly staff. Hope to find more fossils next visit.
  • Very interesting fossils and a great outdoor adventure. Plus you get to keep 3 fossils!
  • The experience was awesome. I'm sure we got lucky by finding a decent fossile within the first 30 minutes. After about 2.5 hours of a great time splitting rock we had some cool pieces for table displays and two small ones we're going to make magnets out of. Full fossils seem extreemly hard/rare to find. Ours were smaller fossils and the ones we found were common and small but on some big rocks that will look cool. It was a lot of fun and the treasure hunt thrill is worth the visit alone. But actually finding some nice fossils doesn't hurt either.
  • Nice little museum featuring a lot of local fossils from when Curlew lake was much different. Pay a little money and go up the hill to collect your own fossils if you wish. We were able to find our limit of fossils. We didn't find any animals, only plants. Still cool to crack open a rock and find something though. Definitely bring water and sun screen
