If you love fossils, this is your place. The dinosaur tracks are nice and only a 100 foot walk from the parking. You can purchase fossils, including tracks from the site, at very reasonable prices. Also, the price of admission is only $3 per person, and includes the owner giving you a great lecture on the various types of tracks... More

I was here about 20 years ago and had purchased a track....decided to visit today 7/23/16 and it was amazing as it was 20 years ago..the store had various tracks for sale. Of course I found one I liked and added to my previous track. The quarry is awesome and you could see some good size prints, some you really... More

This place is a throwback that time has passed by. It plays on peoples' fascination with dinosaurs and inevitably leaves them disappointed. There are better dinosaur track sites within a half hour drive such as on Route 5 in Holyoke.

Kornell Nash, the son of the founder, is wonderfully knowledgeable about the geology of this region and also about local history. He answered all our questions; it was a pleasure talking to him. The quarry is fascinating--bits of fossilized wood and, yes, dinosaur tracks right there. In the gift shop you can see ones that Mr. Nash has cut from... More

This is an authentic Dinosaur track attraction. Inside this store you can view and purchase some nice tracks and fossils. In the back you can see the tracks still in their original spot,. Great place to bring a fossil enthusiast.

I'd been looking for a place to buy some dinosaur tracks for a friends birthday and came across this place online and wasn't disappointed! Mr. Nash really knew his stuff and told me all about the history of the property and the types of dinosaurs that used to live in the Connecticut River Valley back in the day. He has... More

This place looks a little rough from the outside, but the owner is a living encyclopedia of dinosaurs in Massachusetts. For a mere $3, he will tell you the story of what used to roam these lands and what you might see. The quarry is small and a working quarry, so not perhaps a pristine show piece that some might...

I visited with the goal in mind to purchase a dinosaur footprint ...and that is exactly what I did. Mr Nash had been working hard digging up new prints when I arrived. If I had to guess I would say he had about 100 different prints available for purchase. I brought my two daughters, ages 2 & 3. He said... More

You drive up to what looks like someone build a shack in the woods and walk in to see a 'gift shop' where there are dug up tracks, some impressions of tracks and other assorted items. The guy will tell you that its $10/person to walk around his land to see other tracks. We left without paying .. We went... More
