Cleveland Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry

Bureau of Land Management, Utah.

The Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry at Jurassic National Monument is located at 5800 feet. The site is one of the world`s most impressive collections of dinosaur bones and fossils from the Jurassic Morrison Formation. Over 12,000 bones from at least 70 different prehistoric critters have been excavated here. These bones have been reassembled and displayed in museums throughout the world. More to the point is the fact that the deposit is the densest concentration of Jurassic dinosaur bones ever found.

There is a self guided nature walk, and the visitor center is staffed by the BLM through the use of employees and volunteers. The restrooms and the trail at the quarry are accessible.

This site is closed for the 2019 season. It will re-open spring 2020.

Directions

The total distance from Price to the site is about 30 miles. The turnoff to Cleveland and Elmo is about 12 miles south of Price on UT 10 and is signed quite nicely, with a way painted picture of an allosaur. None of the signs after that are quite as big and bright but they are there at all the turns. The minimum necessary distance of gravel road to cover is 13 miles.
