Map

This park is the largest quarry of the Jurassic Period dinosaur bones ever found, and gives this 200,000+ acre, visually striking park its name. The Quarry visitor's Center is now closed, but the monument is open with much to see; there are exhibits, fossil displays, ranger led programs (in summer), many trails to explore, 2 self-guided auto tours offering spectacular scenery, and plenty of land and water recreation. The Canyon Area Visitor Center in Dinosaur, Colorado, is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. through Labor Day; then to October 31 they are closed on the weekends, and closed from November 1st to April 30th. The park is open year round for auto touring, weather permitting; roads are not maintained and are closed when there is snow. The Green River Campground, just 5 miles east of the Quarry, is on a first-come, first-served basis. Some of the amenities include picnic tables, fireplaces and wood for sale, drinking water, modern restrooms, and fishing. There are also campfire circle ranger talks through the summer. There are no electric or water hookups at the campgrounds.
