Accessibility

The Thomas Condon Paleontology and Visitor Center is located in the Sheep Rock Unit of the monument, nine miles west of Dayville, Oregon. The parking lot has a non-sloping paved approach to the visitor center. The fossil museum, theater, education room, bookstore, restrooms, and drinking fountains are wheelchair accessible. The park film is shown with captions on at all times although an audio description is not yet available. Touch exhibits including a wide variety of fossil replicas are available in the center.

The James Cant Ranch Historic District is located a quarter mile from the visitor center and houses the park's headquarters. The ranch house is open on limited days in the summer and contains a cultural museum, restrooms, and a drinking fountain which are all wheelchair accessible.

Wheelchairs: One wheelchair is available for checkout to be used within the Thomas Condon Paleontology and Visitor Center. Another wheelchair is available for checkout to be used within the James Cant Ranch House. No advance reservations are required; please inquire at the front desk.

Trails and Overlooks: Most of the park trails and overlooks are not considered wheelchair accessible. Trails are surfaced with loose gravel, have drop-offs, or are steep. Please use your best judgement based on your abilities.

Picnic Areas: Picnic tables accessible to visitors in wheelchairs are available at all three units of the monument.

Water and Restrooms: Wheelchair accessible restrooms are available at all three units of the monument. Water fountains are also accessible, but all outdoor water sources at picnic areas are turned off during colder months when they are vulnerable to freezing. In the winter and only when that facility is open, the visitor center water fountains are the only ones within the monument available.
