  • While touring the Utah National Parks detoured to this National Monument part in Vernal, Utah, with remainder in Colorado. Fascinating place for amateur "dinosaurologists".  more »

  • If you love natural history, this park's full wall of dinosaur bones is a must see. We also enjoyed dozens of petroglyphs along the car tour and wish we had more time to hike at least one of their many trails. Park staff was super helpful and very informative.
  • Come now the 4 yr old in you always wanted to come here. It's very well put together now. I've been here several times over the decades. They now have a bus you can ride and also a nice section where you can see up close fossils. Now I would say get here early bc the afternoon summer sun is a hot one at times. But the staff is knowledgeable and friendly.. and no they aren't planning on being the dinosaurs back I've asked a couple times now.. but should you want to see dinosaur bones this is the place to come to.
