Drove by this while looking for a hotel, what a neat surprise. Fun place to walk around, would have liked to gone to the museum but left town before it opened. Don't miss it, it's very unique!!

We have passed through Lemmon many times, but this was our first stop at the Petrified Wood Park. It is phenomenal. We enjoyed strolling through it.

I liked seeing the petrified wood. The museum was really interesting. As a bonus got to hear the tornado siren being tested as I left.

Really neat park that you can picnic at or walk your dogs. I went around 6 or 7pm. Made for beautiful pictures but the mosquitoes were insane. It's free & right off the highway. No reason not to stop & check it out.
