Everybody is fascinated by dinosaurs. Take your family on a little side trip to nearby St. George to walk with dinosaurs and see thousands of fossilized footprints at Dinosaur Discovery – it’s handicapped accessible, dog-friendly, and only 27 miles away.

Dinosaur Discovery

Dinosaurs once rumbled through the canyons of what is now Zion National Park – stomping around, eating each other! Now, millions of years later, you can see their footprints and imagine their gigantic lizard lives.

Come through the main door of Dinosaur Discovery to enter a 200 million-year-old ecosystem that was once home to dinosaurs, fishes, and plants. You’ll see five life-sized models of prehistoric animals in the dino museum and the working fossil preparation lab.
