Our family by coincidence found this place on our map. We took a decision - we wanted to see what it was. Both our kid and my husband found it amazing. Just thinking that this area was inhabited with dinosaurs millions of years ago ......More

Worth a stop. There are genuine footprints and fossils. The native American guides are a bit hard to take at times with their lack of underlying knowledge. No fixed price, just a tip to the guide.

Glad we did this. Rv friendly as well as welcoming. Joe met us on entrance to point out where we could park easily and offered a tour for gratuity. The tracks and bones, fossils and gemstones would have been hard, if not impossible, to recognize...More

There are really dino tracks- and eggs here. The hand-made sign and tents selling Navajo jewelry might throw you off, but this is actually a really fun stop- especially for kids and dinosaur lovers! You'll get a Navajo guide that carries a water bottle and...More

Not what we expected, but very interesting, guide was interesting and seemed to know what she was talking about. They don't charge for the little tour but expect a donation which we didn't mind at all.

Tuna City was pretty neat. It was recommened to my friend and I by someone we met on a hike in Sedona, AZ. They had a few different type of dinosaur footprints and fossils.

Don't do it. The land belongs to the Navajo Nation. You don't want to violate their law. You go with a guide so the Navajo can make sure you don't destroy their property. People have defaced their property in the past.
