After reading others reviews of this attraction we looked for the sign on Highway 160 and found it easily. Dale greeted us and walked us around pointing out various footprints and fossils from the dinosaur age. It was very interesting and worth the stop. I...More

We had seen these years ago and since they were on the way between Monument Valley and Cameron, we looked for them again. At first we missed the turn in as the signs were terrible. We just noticed two trucks parked off the side of...More

Stopped here on a random whim and because one of the children I nanny for loves dinosaurs and I thought I would just take some pictures and leave. Instead I was taken on a lovely informative guided tour by a friendly future paleontologist who truly...More

We were welcomed by a Navajo explaining us about the tracks. They don’t charge but we decided to buy handmade jewelry made by them. Nice place with real tracks

The Navajo "guides" here are quite articulate and knowledgeable, but some of their "facts" are not completely accurate. For example, the "dinosaur eggs" they showed us were really just iron concretions.

First of all, you have to be vigilant to not miss it. We drove into Tuba City before we realized we'd missed it. We turned back and found it maybe 4 miles south with just a small handmade sign announcing it. There were a few...More

Only a few miles away from Tuba City there is a wast stone desert, and it is a must see place if you’re around in this area. In 1942 a paleontologist discovered several Dino footprints on the stone, like messages from millions of years ago....More
