Discover dinosaurs in Michigan. Take a walk in the woods to find twenty seven life size cement dinosaurs along with interesting facts. Great idea for families with elementary school aged children who love dinosaurs. A bice outing for all.

My grandson loved this place! We started with a fossil dig and then went on to mining for "precious stones" and then the dinosaur forest. The dinosaurs were life size and this was very well done. They also had a mini golf in the shape...More

Surprisingly challenging mini golf, but we had a good time. The dinosaur gardens were hilarious - definitely good photo ops.

We had stumbled on this place more than twenty years ago and loved it. We saw that it had changed hands and were kind of afraid to go back, but no worries! The current owners have lovingly restored the exhibits as well as adding a...More
