It's a WOW in a dinosaur footprint sorta way.

It's not Disneyland. It's REAL dinosaur tracks left in hardened mud from many Millions of years ago. Recent rainstorms exposed that old mud. It's a 'Wow' if you've never ever seen... read more

It's not Disneyland. It's REAL dinosaur tracks left in hardened mud from many Millions of years ago. Recent rainstorms exposed that old mud. It's a 'Wow' if you've never ever seen such a thing or somebody is really into Dinos. Dozens of Faint imprints 1/4" deep are about size of one's Palmprint . I suppose some people might be bored....

About 5 miles off of the main road on a gravel, but pretty good track. Very well laid out area, with a boardwalk that leads to the section with the most prints to observe. There are rattlesnakes, scorpions, and spiders in the area so you should take care with children and dogs. Everything is well marked and the parking area... More

I enjoyed driving to the tracksite but ... once I got there I really didn't even see the tracks to be honest. You need a lot of imagination to make anything of this.

This tracksite is 5 miles down an unimproved road. We really enjoyed the drive and the visit to the dinosaur tracksite. We saw fossilized seashells in the middle of the Wyoming prairie! So cool.

it was HOT the day we were there (98!) nice for the kids to see, it's a very historically unique place, not many like it n the world! Nice picnic pavilion. Some beautiful color in the rock formations on the way, worth the drive just for that (see existing pics, i didn't bother adding duplicates)

I have been to this site 3 times. There was a Forest Ranger there the first time to point things out. The second time, I was fortunate that another visitor brought a spray bottle of water to help bring out the dinosaur footprints. The time of day makes a difference on wherther any tracks be identified even tho there are... More

I'm always interested in dinosaur sites. It was fun to see the prints of these creatures on the "dance floor" and read the history here. There were public restrooms available and nicely kept area for tourists. And the exhibit is free.

This is a good place for people interested in Dinosaurs. I personally had a hard time making out the dino tracks in the rock. There is a information board that shows you what the tracks look like. It is also a very beautiful area.

We were driving from Yellowstone to Gillette and saw the sign for the Red Gulch Dinosaur Tracksite and knew we had to check it out. We are so thankful we did! The site is five miles off the road down a gravel road which takes you through amazing, colorful landscapes. The site itself has helpful, informative signage. They also allow... More

Largest collection of this type of fossil footprint anywhere on earth!! Brush off the tracks and follow giants of the past. Not many places you can touch and walk in Dino tracks!
