Fossil Collecting Sites with Public Access

I have personally visited each of these establishments and deem them worthy of your time!
Unless otherwise noted, all remain accessible to the public with no restrictions on the casual non-commercial collection of fossils.
A few of them are private property and require paying a fee to collect. Contact information is provided. I am not associated with any of the fee sites.
Click on the photos above the names to see the information on each.
