Cleveland Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry
Located 30 miles (48.2 km) south of Price, the Cleveland Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry (or more properly, the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry) is one of the foremost dinosaur fossil beds in the world.
Since the University of Utah began excavation here in 1929, more than 12,000 individual bones and several dinosaur eggs have been unearthed.
At the Visitor Center, you can see a complete Allosaur skeletal reconstruction as the quarry is the world’s best source of fossilized Allosaur bones. The Allosaur was a flesh-eating dinosaur.
You can even see paleontologists working at their craft here. The bones from more than 70 different animals and 11 species have been uncovered from the quarry. In 1966, the quarry was designated a National Natural Landmark.
