Agate Fossil Beds National Monument lies in the middle of Sioux County, one of the bigger counties in Nebraska. The main occupation here is cattle ranching. Wide open spaces with little traffic are what you can expect as you travel to the monument from any direction. Be sure to have plenty of gas in your car and food or snacks if you plan to spend the day. There are no food concessions at Agate Fossil Beds and restaurants and grocery stores as well as gas stations are from 35 to 50 miles away.
