Attraction details
Owner description: One of the most unique tourist attractions on the Oregon Coast, the Prehistoric Gardens is great for young and old alike. Just 17 miles north of Gold Beach lies an untouched prehistoric garden complete with 23 life size dinosaurs set among a lush 300 year old Oregon rainforest. The self-guided tour allows you to casually stroll along the path and discover what the Earth was like millions of years ago. Family owned and operated since 1955, this eco-friendly attraction is a must see! Pet-Friendly! Dogs are allowed to take the tour for FREE as long as they are on a leash.

“Fun place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

Don't expect high tech or realism but a nice rainforest setting. Grand kids always enjoy a visit and I enjoy their excitement. We make a day trip of it and visit Gold Beach as well.

I really enjoyed everything about this place. I loved the statues and all the info given. It really is an attraction for kids and prices are reasonable for the children.

“Great place to take the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

This place is great! They have life size dinosaurs and plants from the rain forest. I first visited here in 1994 and have been back several times since. If your traveling the coast it is a great place to check out.
