Utah Field House State Park
Step back in time as you walk through the dinosaur garden. Look up to a full-size replica of a 20-foot tall Tyrannosaurus with six-inch knife-like teeth or look down on a ferocious four-foot meat-eating Coelophysis. Seventeen life-size prehistoric animal replicas line the garden paths. Ancient fossil skeletal reproductions, archaeological and geological exhibits, fluorescent minerals and other natural history aspects of the Uinta Mountains and Uinta Basin are featured in the Utah Field House of Natural History museum.
The museum and dinosaur garden are in the heart of Dinosaurland in Vernal. A picnic area is located behind the museum. Camping is available at nearby Steinaker and Red Fleet state parks.
