Located in Kemmerer Wyoming, American Fossil (FishDig.com) is an affiliate of Fossil Shack (FossilShack.com), Paleoland Holdings, and Lakefossils.com. Only with us can you dig and keep real fossils. We have been operating for several decades as fossil preparators and fossil retailers. We have recently acquired the South Dempsey Quarry, in the Green river formation and want to make it the most exciting destination in the world for families and everyone who loves fossils. We are onlu 45 minutes from Bear Lake, 45 minutes from Evanston, and 2 hours from both Salt Lake City and Park City.

We will be opening the quarry for digging on May 26th of 2017. This is a world famous quarry, and one of only two locations in the world where a complete 3-Toed horse has been found. You can also find stingrays, shrimp, gar, paddlefish, amia, pike, dioplomystus, knightia, and even turtles, crocodiles, bats, birds, ancient rhinos and camels, primates, and much more.

Unlike most fossil dig locations, here at our quarry you will have the opportunity to keep every fossil you find. We have a variety of packages available to meet any budget and love to help accommodate large groups.
