Originally named Artesia, this quaint town became the gateway community to the archeologically and paleontologically rich Dinosaur National Monument, and renamed itself Dinosaur as a result. This quiet community welcomes visitors down Stegosaurus Freeway and Brontosaurus Boulevard as part of the Dinosaur Diamond, a driving tour of this stunning area that conveniently passes through town.
Downtown Dinosaur features two full-service cafes, a bar, a sandwich-and-ice-cream place that doubles as a gift shop, and a handful of souvenir shops. The Colorado Welcome Center and Dinosaur National Monument Visitors Center are both ideal places to begin any journey in this area, where friendly staff can answer any of your questions, and help you make a plan for touring the area’s sights.
Dinosaur welcomes those returning from rafting adventures on the legendary Yampa and Green rivers, which flow through the national monument well to the north. One of many take-outs for these expeditions is in Echo Park, where the impressive Steamboat Rock rises over the confluence of the two rivers. This area remains a habitat for endangered peregrine falcons, golden eagles, bighorn sheep, Colorado pike minnows and razorback suckers. Those finishing their wilderness expeditions here can head into Dinosaur for much-needed rest and relaxation.
Outdoor recreation around Dinosaur isn’t just limited to the national monument. Camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, four-wheeling and canoeing are also available in many of the public lands that surround the town. In fact, wildlife viewing in the area for deer, elk, antelope, fox and a variety of birds is sublime at dawn and dusk.
