Awesome place to take children as they have sandboxes for the kids to dig for "fossils" as well as pieces that can be touched. Great place to learn about the types of animals that lived here before humans were around.
We learned a lot in a short time while there. It was really fun watching the actual digging that was going on. We were allowed to take our dog everywhere except the main gift shop building.
Amazing fossil site! Well worth the drive into the middle of nowhere.
Love this spot!! A must visit place - especially if you love science, fossils, and history!!
Very fasinating fossils and sceenery along the drive to get to it was nearly breath taking
