We spent the the previous night in Delta and drove to the site on Wednesday morning. You drive approximately 32 miles on a paved road then turn onto a gravel road for another 20 miles. The road was well maintained and signs to the dig site are present, we had no problems. The lady was the site was extremely polite... More

This is a great place to find fossils!! The staff was very friendly and helpful! She showed us the different fossils we could find and where to locate the fossils. All of us, my dad, five year old daughter, and myself had a blast spliting rocks or locating them on the surface rocks. My daughter found so many on the... More

A great place to dig fossils, we brought home buckets of Trilobites! A great place to take the kids and learn about fossils.

Friendly staff, abundant Trilobites and overall a fun experience. Only it was over 100 the day we went so bring appropriate clothing and water if going during the summer.

I kept hearing how great U-Dig was – and, of course, the site’s own webpage does its best to make sure you think so, too. In a late May 2015 visit, however, we found high prices and only a small and relatively unproductive area in which to work. Though three of us worked for four hours to dig out as... More

I am sorry you did not have a good experience at U-Dig Fossils. Your experience is very unusual. Most customers do well collecting at U-Dig Fossils. More often than not, the customers that do extremely well are the more experienced collectors. I wish you would have contacted the operator working that day to assist you while you were collecting. If... More

You Dig Fossils in Delta, Utah was certainly a very different kind of adventure for us flatlanders! To be standing or sitting in an area containing thousands of trilobites that are 540+ millions of years old is simply an amazing experience. To take a hammer and begin breaking the stones open to find the trilobites that no human before you... More

Today I drove from Fillmore to the U-Dig site (about 1 1/2 hours). My intention was to find a sheet with at least 3 trilobites on it; when I explained this to the hostess "Brooke" she said she would go up the hill and help me! So she & her daughter (age 1 1/2 years, but spry and sure-footed on... More

It is impossible to find the quarry on the GPS by name so we actually used the coordinates given and we made it there. It is a long drive on gravel road and since our car is a rental car, we do not dare to drive fast. It is about 30mins drive on gravel road and 30mins drive on the... More
