If you are into dinos, then you will defininetly see them here, a work in progress. It is a bit os a schlep on dirt roads to get to it. Once you are there it is about a 2 hour activity, including, a little hiking, bring water with you

We stopped at the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry on our way to the San Rafael Swell. They have a small but very nice museum. The quarry buildings are fun because you get to see what an actual dig looks like. We also did the rock walk and loved getting to see dinosaur bones in situ. If you can, go first thing... More

Crazy long drive to get to, but very worthwhile...Amazing to see "real life" bones in their natural setting. Short walking trail to see more natural wonders. Plan on a couple of hours, mostly for the drive

Traveling back from Moab to Salt Lake City, we found the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry near the half way mark. A bit off the beaten path but well worth the 12 mile drive down a dirt road. Anybody fascinated by dinosaurs will find this to be a wonderland. Definitely take the Rock Walk. You will literally be walking amongst fossils. Loved... More

Interesting family detour. Small place. Not as expansive as Dinosaur National Monument but you can see fossils still in the ground.

A dirt/gravel road. You think you are nowhere and in the high desert. Then, boom, you are at the Quarry. Great displays, beautiful facility, friendly staff, really interesting walking trails and bones everywhere. A very worthwhile visit.

This site contains some very extensive dinosaur remains. It is kind of in the middle of nowhere. This is a site which should receive federal funding to upgrade facilities and perhaps make it a National Monument or Park. It is a hidden treasure, literally.

Whenever Roy and I have traveled up to Wellington to explore Nine Mile Canyon, continued up to Price to visit the CEU Prehistoric Museum, or simply go shopping, we often passed by the sign "Dinosaur Quarry" on Route 6/191. We always said, "One of these days, we'll get there". Well, one of those days finally came around on Saturday, June... More
