This attraction is free. If you choose to have a native walk you around (which I recommend, as you might miss things), then they accept donations but do not require you compensate them. This was fun to hear about the various theories and see the...More

Awesome dinosaur tracks. Guides, if you wish to have one are great and very knowledgeable. You don’t need to have one as there are plenty of tracks but we found it worth while. A simple small tip or donation for their time is worth it....More

We read about this as a side trip between Monument Valley and Flagstaff. There is no sign because the guides told us that people keep stealing them so just put it in your Google maps as "dinosuar bones outside Tuba City" and it will alert...More

Four of us including an artist who paints dinosaurs pulled in to park and we were immediately approached by a weathered native woman who introduced herself as Marie. We agreed to follow her — after all, it was just a plain of bare rock how...More

On the Navajo Reservation these Paleolithic fossils have evidently been authenticated. Regardless, it’s beautiful desert environs when not too hot or cold. No entrance fee, tip your guide as if there was. The tracks are very amazing & our Navajo guide was knowledgeable & made...More

Dale was a cool tour guide. He greeted us immediately and explained everything we were seeing as we were walking through it. He was very welcoming. The tour does end with a gift shop but they didn't pressure us to tip them or buy anything,...More

This is a scam. We visited and the so-called “dinosaur tracks” are traced in the ground by the same people that guide naive tourists around. In a 5 minute walk an 11 year old Native American girl will show you “tracks” of about 15 different...More
