Dinosaur National Monument is a 210,000-acre park with a variety of resources, complex issues and multifaceted operations. It has one of the most complete geologic records of any national parks and an internationally renowned display of Jurassic-era dinosaur bones and a significant Cretaceous-era dinosaur quarry.
But Dinosaur is much more than just dinosaur fossils. The rugged landscape includes diverse habitats that support a surprisingly diverse variety of plants and animals and also critical habitat for endangered species. Cultural resources (granaries, campsites, pit houses, rock art, artifacts, foundations, and cabins) span 11,000 years and constitute a lengthy record of the evolution of the prehistoric cultural diversity and historic settlement of the region. The rapids and magnificent scenery found in the canyons carved by the Green and Yampa rivers provide premier Western whitewater boating. The Yampa is the only remaining large tributary in the Colorado River system that retains its natural-flowing character. Dinosaur contains more than 186,000 acres of recommended wilderness and 4,000 acres as potential wilderness additions. Annual visitation ranges from 350,000 to 500,000 visitors per year. Please visit our website at www.nps.gov/dino for more information.
