FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Best photo opportunities are at dawn and dusk, so camp overnight in one of the park's two year-round campgrounds
  • Kids love Robert's Prairie Dog Town; good trails for family hikes are the 1/4-mile Fossil Exhibit Trail and 1/2-mile Cliff Shelf Trail
  • Go to the Ben Reifel Visitor Center for an overview movie, ranger activities, exhibits, and the Junior Ranger Program for ages 7-12
