Plan Your Visit
Dinosaur National Monument offers an array of attractions and recreational opportunities.
You can see 1,500 dinosaur fossils still encased in the rock at the Dinosaur Quarry Exhibit Hall. In the summer, shuttle buses leave the Quarry Visitor Center every 15 minutes for the Quarry Exhibit Hall. At other times of the year, rangers lead car carvans to the Quarry on a set schedule. See the hours of operation page for current hours.
Experience dramatic canyon views while river rafting, take a drive on one of our scenic highways, ponder the meaning of Fremont petroglyphs, or spend some time watching the monument's diverse wildlife. Check out the links on all the outdoor activities, as well as, information on operating hours, fees, and facilities and services. You are also welcome to join a ranger for a guided program. Park staff offer talks, walks, junior ranger, evening and night sky programs.
