Fun times digging for fossils with my boys. Our guide helped us to identify them as we were digging! Great and knowledgeable staff. Fun way to start our road trip!

We arrived just as the guides were packing up, and bought a family annual pass so we could stay until sundown. It was an absolute thrill, cracking open pieces of limestone to find fossils upon fossils! It's hard on the fingers and hands, and I definitely recommend gloves, and tools to help excavate. There's a lot of trip and fall hazards, so beware. There's also very little protection from the elements. I suggest hats, bandanas, eye protection, gloves, a bucket, snacks, beverages and water to rinse your findings! Cannot wait to return :)

So much fun. Spent the afternoon there with two kids and all enjoyed the experience. Easy to do with no experience and it’s a nature reserve - not a cheesy tourist experience. Highly recommend.
