Enjoyable with a great guide!

We drove from Price, Utah following the signs and found it without difficulty. The hours are 10-5 on TH-SAT. The guide on duty, Mary, was an excellent resource who added great... read more

This place is way out of the way, middle of no where, thank you for GPS. My son is a dino fanatic, so we went out of our way to see it. Not much to talk about, very small visitor center, building where they excavated and some hiking trails. We did hike one trail to the top of the mesa... More

Cleveland-Lloyd is not on the beaten path, but it's well worth making the trip. We really enjoyed seeing this quarry with its many skeletons. It's not always open so be sure and check hours. The visitor's center is very small, but they do have some literature. Bathrooms were in an adjacent building. College students were working in the visitor's center... More

We drove from Price, Utah following the signs and found it without difficulty. The hours are 10-5 on TH-SAT. The guide on duty, Mary, was an excellent resource who added great interest to our trip. This quarry is the source of 46 Alosaurus skeletons. I think this is a nice compliment to a visit to the Utah State University Prehistoric... More

I came her back in September when my boyfriend was working there on an internship, so he got to show me around. I love the Allosaurus exhibits, and I got to go out in the field and pick up some real bone fragments! It was pretty neat. The guides help you decipher between bone fragments and rock.

The drive out is a bit long on a well kept dirt road. My kids enjoyed going through a town called Elmo and we took pictures at the Elmo Library and Elmo Post Office. The area was very unique with large rock boulders. The kids loved just running around chasing rabbits and trying to catch lizards. I have 3 boys... More

I went along 12 miles of dusty gravel road to find only a small museum. The walks not clearly defined and little explanation. There is an exposed section in two small huts. There is NO digging as mentioned in some brochures. Better to spend an extra day in Vernal or go to Green River where there is some digging.

We hiked two ways trough the landscape and havent't seen anything interesting. Like others write before me, it is disappointing to see only a few bones and one dinosaur model

It is a pretty good drive on dusty unpaved roads. They have a small visitor center with some nice exhibits and models. The quarry area is covered by a building with some exposed bones. There appears to be little activity. We were the only people there during our visit. There is a $5 fee per person admission.

After seeing the Utah Dinosaur National monument I have to admit my expectations were pretty high. Being the large concentrations of Dinosaur bones came from such a small area, there is one building with most of the original bones removed and replicas in their place. There are some displays in the building where you pay but it is not very... More

It was pretty interesting to see the dinosaur bones still embedded in the rock, but it was a very long drive on desolate roads to get there. I did the two hikes at the center, so I spent half a day there. If you're not a total dinosaur fanatic, you might be disappointed at the few things to see (versus... More
