Fossil Rim Locations

How to get to specific locations within Fossil Rim

Please consider the following while planning your visit:

Rain or shine, Fossil Rim welcomes you. Come and explore nature at its finest any season of the year.

The animals do not care what the weather is doing. Giraffes may be put in their yard during the rain, but the other animals will be out sloshing around.

Halfway through the Gosdin Scenic Drive is the Overlook, which has our Overlook Café, picnic area, Nature Store, Children’s Animal Center, and nature hiking trails.

We realize that many people travel with their pets, but due to governmental regulations pets cannot be allowed on Fossil Rim property or left in parked vehicles in our parking lot. Please take this under consideration when making plans to visit us. There are veterinarians in the Glen Rose area that offer boarding services, so please call our main number for more information.
