Nestled in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee is this self-guided and incredibly fun path that features an extensive collection of homemade dinosaur replicas that have been made by the property's owner. The design of each and every dinosaur is based on the scientific findings of the recent times and each of them has a sign that details its characteristics, discovery facts and classification. Throughout the park there are various exhibits including a velociraptor enclosure, a dig site for fossils, a beautiful Mesozoic nature trail as well as an array of other surprises. It is clearly evident that a lot of care and effort has gone behind creating this gem of a place. Entry to this park is free but you can make a donation.

Backyard Terrors Dinosaur Park Reviews & Ratings
Dinosaur park is amazing. Took my 2 year old grandson and it totally blew away all our expectations. He was beyond excited and we enjoyed as well. The detail put into each exhibit was remarkable. Amazes me this is by donation only. Great walking path (wear tennis shoes). Must see if you are or have a dinosaur fan in your family. Huge thank you for sharing this with the public.
Pretty awesome place and a really unique find. Pair this with the Gray Fossil site and it makes for a pretty cool day. Really glad that someone was able to put this together and keep it going for donations only, amazing! My son and daughter had a ton of fun
This was an awesome find. It is free but they do take donations and it's well worth donating. The owners invested real heart into their exhibit and you can tell they really know their history. The walk through the property was very relaxing and we were blessed with good weather. I would highly recommend stopping by and taking a walk through it!
This is a really amazing place considering all that went into making it and that it is donations only! The dinosaurs are very well crafted and the info on each dinosaur is good. There are a few hands on activities which it nice. Any child into dinosaurs should go. They also do parties. In the fall they do a haunted trail, but I didn't see that since I went in July.
Amazing place. The amount of work that the owner puts into it is amazing! Everything is well taken care of. We took our 18month old son and he had a blast looking at all the dinosaurs.
