Enjoyable with a great guide!

Crazy long drive to get to, but very worthwhile...Amazing to see "real life" bones in their natural setting. Short walking trail to see more natural wonders. Plan on a couple of hours, mostly for the drive

Traveling back from Moab to Salt Lake City, we found the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry near the half way mark. A bit off the beaten path but well worth the 12 mile drive down a dirt road. Anybody fascinated by dinosaurs will find this to be a wonderland. Definitely take the Rock Walk. You will literally be walking amongst fossils. Loved... More

Interesting family detour. Small place. Not as expansive as Dinosaur National Monument but you can see fossils still in the ground.

A dirt/gravel road. You think you are nowhere and in the high desert. Then, boom, you are at the Quarry. Great displays, beautiful facility, friendly staff, really interesting walking trails and bones everywhere. A very worthwhile visit.

This site contains some very extensive dinosaur remains. It is kind of in the middle of nowhere. This is a site which should receive federal funding to upgrade facilities and perhaps make it a National Monument or Park. It is a hidden treasure, literally.

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
