I have been coming here since I was a kid (40+ years now), and recently introduced it to my children on a summer trip. Shawn was our guide and he was not only incredibly knowledgeable about the tracks and area, but he seemed genuinely interested in what he was explaining. My youngest (9) said the best part was "All of... More

We stopped at this on our way to our hotel in Tuba City; I wasn't expecting much because it doesn't look like much. What a mistake - it was great fun. We spent two hours here, first with a guide and then wandering on our own. There are tracks, eggs and bones from all kinds of dinosaurs (even a T-Rex!),... More

We were skeptical at first but are so glad we went! Navajo tour guide explained things really well. Beautiful scenery as well. Great place for pictures. On this day, it was drizzling but this was actually good as it was summer and this cooled things off tremendously. And we left with several beautiful turquoise necklaces!

After reviwing the previous posts, i had to visit this place as a stop in from Utah towards Flagstaff. When we got there, the Navajo people were fighting on whose turn it was to do the guide. It was hilarious to see from our family's perspective. Since they rely on donations as a payment, we ended up with Isabel, a... More

We stopped here despite warnings in guidebooks that this would be "dismal" and "disappointing." Nothing could be farther from the truth! Very cool! Lots and lots of tracks to see and a guide that was very very polite and courteous... This is an unconventional experience and an adventure worth having. My kids and my husband and I all felt safe...

First, totally ignore Petra from Vienna. No way was this site anything but polite and friendly and accepting of donations. We did it on a whim just before sunset and had a terrific 25 year old Navajo young man as a guide who could not only name the dinosaurs, but (posed or not), had a great interest of the whole...

It was a neat stop to see several dinosaur tracks and artifacts. My guide was very personable but I do have to admit that one of the other at the tent was complaining how she had not gotten very good tips for the day and she didn't have any money to eat. I gave $10 to my guide (for a... More

This is just a track right by the road....and there are LOADS of footprints! WELL WORTH STOPPING FOR! The locals, for a tip, show you some features you might miss, like claw prints.

If you have 10-20minutes to spar there's no reason you shouldn't go and check out these dinosaur tracks! We had a great guide Marie, she was very informative and honest about the dinosaur tracks. It's honestly such a treat to be right there in the middle of the desert and be able to step all over and touch footprints, eggs,... More

Our young guide Kyle was amazing, knowledgeable, and friendly. This 'donations only' stop is better than the homemade signs suggest. The jewelry vendors were friendly and the prices great. I've passed the signs for years and finally stopped by; a must see on your trip as you drive thru Tuba City!
