Sangjogam County Park (Goseong Dinosaur Park)

The Sangjogam County Park is a must to visit in Korea.

If you are a dinosaur, science, or history lover, the Sangjogam County Park (상족암군립공원) Cretaceous Dinosaur Theme Park (백악기공룡테마파크) in Goseong, South Korea is a must to visit.

You get to walk where the dinosaurs did and see their actual footprints that had naturally fossilized along the shore line. Along the way, there are signs that tell you what kinds of dinosaurs walked there, why the rocks were a different color or texture, and information about how the footprints became permanent in the ground.

Its a peaceful and beautiful walk to where the Dinosaur Museum and the play area for families. You even get to walk into a small, but natural cave that is near the beach. Most go to the area for hiking if they didn’t come for the dinos.

When you get to the family area, they have statues of different dinosaurs with information about them.

There is even a fun maze you can go through to find baby dinosaurs, which I was clearly happy to find. They were so cute!

If the hike and the family park wasn’t enough for you, you can go inside the dinosaur museum. My friend and I didn’t go in it, but I still recommend going so you can get the full experience. So start at the fishing village and work your way along. Don’t forget to enjoy the view!
