Discover dinosaurs in Michigan. Take a walk in the woods to find twenty seven life size cement dinosaurs along with interesting facts. Great idea for families with elementary school aged children who love dinosaurs. A bice outing for all.

My grandson loved this place! We started with a fossil dig and then went on to mining for "precious stones" and then the dinosaur forest. The dinosaurs were life size and this was very well done. They also had a mini golf in the shape...More
