Flew into Salt Lake City and went directly to the fossil Lake safari quarry. We had such a wonderful experience, even better than what we imagined. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable!

I had a great time at Fossil Lake Safari! Everyone there was so nice, but Kaden was incredible. He was so helpful in showing us what to do and would check on my husband and me throughout the time we were looking for fossils. He offered very helpful hints and tricks and had a lot of information on what we were finding. It was a great experience and we are so happy with all of the super cool fossils we found!

We had an amazing time hunting fossils here. The family/owners are wonderful and their workers were friendly and helpful. It was so much fun uncovering the fossils, we will definitely go back and make this a definite destination! We went July, 2024. I bought entrance online prior to the day we went, it was very easy to do. Highly recommended it!!!

Best experience ever, so worth the side trip. Just bring your work cloths, a shade hat and water.Staff was wonderful, they provide the tools and gloves. Had I known that we’d find over 30 fish fossils in 2 hours I would have brought a box and some packaging paper too. They let you use their tile saws to trim up your pieces. If we didn’t have a tight schedule we would have stayed the day. Our two hours did not count the upfront instructions or the sawing afterwards. We had a senior and a 11yr old with and they loved it too.

We spent a Saturday looking for fossils and had SO much fun!! The guides were friendly and informative. They really know their stuff! We found a lot of fossils and had a great time. They even cut your fossils out of the large rocks so they can be easily displayed. Such a great time for our family. Beautiful area, too! We plan on going back!!

Had a great experience finding more fish fossils than we had expected. Employees were extremely helpful both in showing how to go about finding the fossils and explaining to us what we found. Will definitely return.

Amazing fossil site, staffed by some very knowledgeable individuals. Although most of my specimens that I found were small fish I noticed that other people around me were really scoring big on some nice specimens. I would certainly recommend this fossil site for anyone looking to gain some experience. Highlight of my experience was learning how to clean and identify fossils that were not exposed.

I had been here once before, years ago. Although the business has changed, the atmosphere was friendly, the people were helpful and everything was great! Highly recommend this place!!

We had a lot of fun! Shonda, helped check us in and explained the rules. She is very friendly. Kadan and Afton, employees, walked around and answered all our questions, they got excited with us as we found fossils. They even helped us when needed. Kianu, cleaned up our fossils and made them look beautiful. Each of the employees were kind to everyone digging. They let us go at our own pace. We had a member of our family get a finger smashed pretty good. All of the employees kept calmed and attended first aid quickly and kept us grounded and even helped us laugh to stay calm. They took good care of us and made sure we got all our fossils when some of us had to leave early.
