Visit a Science Park!

By December 29, 2012

Follow me on:

Petrified Forest NPBest known for globally significant Late Triassic fossils, Petrified Forest National Park was designated a national monument in 1906 to preserve and protect the petrified wood for its scientific value. Scientific studies are on-going at the park; paleontologists find new fossils, biologists study living plants and animals, and geologists study the multi-hued Chinle Formation.

Petrified Forest National Park doesn't allow camping, though backpacking is permitted and there are plenty of campgrounds just outside the park. A world of science is waiting to be discovered.

Learn more about Petrified Forest National Park and find the information for area camping and visiting the park. Find more national park getaways here.
