There is a parking lot, and then a hill that looks like a rock quarry. You can't step without seeing at least a partial fossil. We even found one whole one. It was so much fun. But hot. No shade. Still worth it, especially with...More

Not conveniently. The 67 runs through Shraonville but only during rush hour and the stops are not on Hauck road to my knowledge.

It is open throughout the year. Nobody's patroling the area. It's pretty much self service park. It has public restroom, water fountains.
