watch out... its closed on tuesdays and wednesdays
I loved it. The ranger was very nice and knowledgeable. It is small but pAcked with very cool fossils and a separate section for Minoka internment camp. Also a place to get a stamp for your National Parks passport.
We went here abd learned about the fossils anx the Oregon Trail! My daughters got their Junior Ranger Badges!
(I meant a 12 minute video, not a repeat of "ranger station"
Not worth the stop for kids - just a tiny, tiny ranger station with a small collection and a ranger station. Nothing like the description.
Just a monument with history of the area and fossil findings over looking a lake. We didn't see the building I see everyone in the reviews talking about. Ah well.
Looks like it would have been cool based on what I was able to see through the windows.. unfortunately it was Wednesday when we went and they were closed. Didn't have the time to wait in Idaho another day so I never did get to see it.
