Whenever Roy and I have traveled up to Wellington to explore Nine Mile Canyon, continued up to Price to visit the CEU Prehistoric Museum, or simply go shopping, we often passed by the sign "Dinosaur Quarry" on Route 6/191. We always said, "One of these days, we'll get there". Well, one of those days finally came around on Saturday, June... More

I had read other reviews so I knew to ask about seeing the dino tracks. We arrived just as they opened (10am). We looked at the exhibits and the Quarry digs, which if you have been to Dino National Park are a bit underwhelming. We returned to the visitors center and asked about the dino tracks. Given that they are... 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.
