  • I drove about two hours to take my 6 year old, who is crazy about dinosaurs, there. I forewarned him that there wouldn't be any chance of finding bones, just shell type fossils- didn't want to set unr...  more »
  • My boys, 3 and 7, could have spent all day here. We went on a total whim so we weren't prepared, but will be next time. I suggest you bring a spray bottle with water, small brushes or toothbrush, and ...  more »
  • Oh where to start so much fun!!!!!!! A place to get your hands dirty with your child searching for something ancient what an awesome adventure! Then a beautiful trail to walk nice place to picnic- and drumroll ...... my goodness it is absolutely free:-)
  • Would like to come back in the summer time when they are open.
  • I chose this as an activity to celebrate my 35th birthday. I was a little concerned that I would be out of place because we did not have any kids with us, but I had nothing to worry about. It was a very relaxing day. The fossils were everywhere once you know what you are looking for. There was a gentleman there that answered any questions anyone had. There were several kids at the park while we were there and they were having so much fun. What kids doesn't love digging in the dirt? Take a trip there if you have kids or not.
  • The fossil pit sits in the blazing sun. It's just a big rocky pit. Not exactly as exciting as we had hoped. Found a few fossils. Don't go on a hot day. Clean restrooms and nice parking. We did not use the trails- so can't review that part.
  • A great idea for safe (and guaranteed) fossil hunting! We swing through here when we travel from MI to TN or PA. It doesnt require any prep if you don't have time. It can be a very quick stop, or an all day, picnic-out kind of event. Clean bathrooms. We'll kept, overall.
