Climbing the hill is good exercise. It is nice on a sunny day. It was a pleasant experience. I will come back again.

Hubby and I stopped as part of trip from Ohio to KY. Was great place to stretch legs, get out the trowels and play for a bit. Saw a few families who were enjoying the park as well. This is a good activity on a cool, sunny day. The "park" is a side of a hill that has exposed fossils.... More

This is a really cool place for those who like to find fossils. We stepped out of the car and everywhere we looked there were rocks with fossils. You don't even have to dig for them but you can if you want to. There was a scout group with picks and brushes making fossil "discoveries". They even have displays to... More

Never heard this place before, till I read in local FB info. Took 3 kids, 2 8yo and 1 3yo hunting fossil there 2 days ago. We climbed up to the hill and dug with spoons, paint brush and found very tiny shells and others. Beautiful view from the top. Glad the site provide restroom, water fountain. Be careful walking...

It is a neat place to visit if you or your children are interested in fossils. It is free to the public. Unfortunately because it is free no one takes care of the grounds. The picnic tables in particular are in dire need of some paint. But really the whole area could use some sprucing up. With that said, it... More

This is such a unique place it's worth a visit. I think it's overlooked often and it's one of those things you maybe don't need to do over and over but you should definitely do at least once. It's a fun little outing.

I am local and have been wanting to check this place out for awhile. It is neat and unique if you are into fossils. There is an information section that explains the kind of fossils you will find. If you need to use the restroom there is a portalet. I recommend wearing good shoes if you want to climb to... More

Visited here on a warm May day and was shocked by the amount of fossils. What a cool place! They have signage indicating the age of the different areas where you are fossil-hunting. Most of the fossils are shells or bits of plant life. Fascinating look into ancient (like super ancient) Ohio!
