Never heard this place before, till I read in local FB info. Took 3 kids, 2 8yo and 1 3yo hunting fossil there 2 days ago. We climbed up to the hill and dug with spoons, paint brush and found very tiny shells and others. Beautiful view from the top. Glad the site provide restroom, water fountain. Be careful walking... 更多
It is a neat place to visit if you or your children are interested in fossils. It is free to the public. Unfortunately because it is free no one takes care of the grounds.

We spent about 2-1/2 hours there and found lots of fossils. You don't have to dig or look hard, you can find them pretty much everywhere. But you can also make it... 更多
Though we were the only adults without children there, my husband and I had a great time digging around in the dirt together finding fossils. The signs at the bottom were great to identify the finds. We were surprised at the ease of finding several different kinds of fossils within minutes. If you like nature and don't mind getting dirty,... 更多
