U-Dig Fossils was a well anticipated stop along the route of our Southwest road trip that began in Washington state. Our drive north from the Grand Canyon, with a hotel stay in between, took longer than we planned on. Upon arrival in Delta, our GPS led us into a residential area on a late afternoon. (Having misplaced the info we... More

early July visited in afternoon. Once we got hang of it and knew what we were looking for it wasn't hard to find the trilobites. Periodically we brought back our findings for worker to review and advise which were keepers and which to disgard - many were keepers. Spent 2 hours and had a good size box full of those... More

So I dragged my husband and kids to this place in the middle of the desert called Death Canyon. My youngest was super excited until she realized she was going to have to work for her reward. I liked it and my husband found the most trilobites. We went July 2 and arrived in mid morning 11ish to beat the... More

I spent 3 hours the other day splitting rocks looking for trilobites. I did find some...not a lot, but this kind of thing is always hit-or-miss. Based on my 3 hours, a full day of work should result in several very nice large trilobites (about two inches), and quite a few nice, smaller ones. You can buy trilobites in a... More

It's 30ish miles from Delta on the highway and then another 20 out a gravel road (and when you get to the one or two points on the gravel road where the speed limit drops, slow down - no kidding.) Once there, you pay your money for a couple of hours, a half day, or full day. They provide hammers... More

Thanks for the opportunity our troop had to come out to the quarry on 4/19. It was a lot of fun and the scouts actually learned some things. Everyone took home fossils and out newest scout managed to make the find of the day with a perfect speciman. Bevan was AWESOME working with scouts and helping them out. I highly... More

My daughter Stephanie loves studying / researching prehistoric life and she wanted to study fossils. I looked up fossil digging in Utah because I watched a special about U-Dig Fossils on the Travel Channel "America's Best Places to Find Cash & Teasures" around a year ago. My daughter was very excited about digging fossils so we went to Utah for... More

The U-Dig Fossils is really a long drive off the main road. If you have four-wheel drive you'll be better prepared than we were. We had a Ford Windstar minivan, and while the car handled the journey quite well, we were a bit jumbled by the time we reached the actual dig site. We went in fall of 2010, so... More

We did a two day dig at U-Dig in Millard county Utah. In two days we filled 8 5gallon buckets with trilobite containing shale. Bevan, Holly and Gene were all very helpful in showing us good areas to explore and also spending time with us in the quarry.We would HIGHLY recommend a visit if you are in Millard County or... More

A totally different experience. We found a few fossils, but spend a lot less and get better stuff by stopping in a rock shop in Delta. When we were there it looked like it was time for them to drag some some material from the pits.

One of our highest priorities is to assist our customers so they are successful when they visit U-Dig quarry. The operator running the quarry is there to assist the customers. If a customer is not finding nice Trilobite specimens, I always hope they will ask the operator to come help them. Most of our customers do very well. Sorry your... More
