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.

Yeah, it's a little cheesy, but the kids wanted to go so I gave in and went. Been driving by for 9 years and hadn't stopped. Actually pretty cool! The rainforest must be experienced.

We like to stop here and stretch our legs while crazy hubby takes the umpteenth millionth photo of the T-Rex out front. Nice clean bathrooms. Small little gift shop.

This attraction is a perfect reproduction of prehistoric animals in a beautiful forest. It is awe inspiring.

This place is definitely for families with kids, but if they are into dinosaurs, this is the place to stop.
