  • There is a parking lot, and then a hill that looks like a rock quarry. You can't step without seeing at least a partial fossil. We even found one whole one. It was so much fun. But hot. No shade. Stil...  more »

  • We had a beautiful day for this and were in the area after visiting Kings island. We were told to bring our fossil crazed 9 year old here about a year ago. It is 3 hours from our home so I was going to plan a trip just to go here. I am glad that I didn't end up doing that. I thought that there would be a building/mini museum on the property. But it is more of a little city park. There is a driveway and a large gravel pit. There are a few signs and some picnic tables. No bathrooms. It would be amazing if someone added to this place, but maybe this is for the best. It was not crowded. We found a fossil within a minute of arriving. Even my 6 year old who totally didn't want to go to this, ended up finding fossils and loving it. We found mostly brachiopods and corals. We searched for trilobites with no success. I would suggest bringing a blanket or pad to sit on while you look. It would also be a great place for a picnic. Definitely a fun time with the family!
  • Good place to get kids interested in fossils , also a free family activity for summer days. You get to keep small fossils to take home 😬
  • Small park but much closer to town than Caesar Creek. Decent fossils can be found.
  • Great fun fossil hunting! A fun family outing.
  • Very easy to get to. Pretty easy to climb and tons of fossils everywhere! They have Porta pots and a hand washing station with soap.
