A bit underwhelmed by the hoodoos based off of some reviews I'd received from friends. The hoodoos themselves are an interesting geolgical feature, and it's hard to say no to free. There has been some great work done installing stairs and barriers to minimize future damage to the site. Highlight was being able to scale the hills behind the hoodoos.... More

Not far outside of Drumheller (20-25 minutes) is this hoodoo site. These curious and interesting formations are definitely worth a visit --- there are very sturdy, metal staircases that take you up to them where you can take plenty of pictures and read very concise and information signs about the hoodoos. There are restrooms available, trash and recycling containers and... More

We didn't originally plan to visit the hoodoos, but certainly glad we did. The rock formations are very neat. Would have stayed longer if it wasn't raining. Also, it is free of charge.

Its not something to rant and rave over but it is beautiful, lots of picture opps! I would suggest stopping even if it is only for a few minutes and take a look around. Nice they have bathrooms and a parking spot there too!

While we were hoping for more, this was still a beautiful place. As with many places of natural beauty, we are in danger of losing these because of the actions of a few or Mother Nature herself. Take the time if you can to see how the land can shape itself. You won't be disappointed.

Drumheller is all about dinosaurs and hoodoos, so it was a little disappointing to finally visit the hoodoos and feel underwhelmed. They're very small for what I imagined and there aren't very many to look at. The smart thing is they have fenced the area and added stairs to protect the hoodoos that remain. You can get close, but not... More

The photos online look amazing, not sure what happen but they were pretty dissapointing. Someone said they bull dozed a lot of them to make the road? we were expecting much more, but there was very little, maybe a 10 min stop to look at them.....

Quite close to Drumheller and on the way to the Atlas Coal Mine, very interesting to walk around and explore.

If you are driving by take a break and stop to have a look. Well maintained site. These hoodoos are small in size compared to those in Banff.
