What a fantastic place to visit. Not only do you get a sense of how vast this country is, but to see how the petrified wood was formed is awesome. The history that is Dobell Ranch, makes it an even better adventure. Collected many pieces...More

This is an awesome place for Petrified Wood! First, a couple of suggestions to improve your visit to the Dobell Ranch. If possible, call or text your message to Noah at 623-219-6996 to verify that he will be at the ranch when you arrive. The...More

They were no here when I arrived and I called them. They got back from the dig just before I was leaving. Gave us a real good price on a large piece of petrified wood.

Noah,the owner/operator, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He spent a few hours showing us different pieces, explaining the process it has gone through and how he polishes them. You can't beat the prices of his petrified wood. Definitely a place to stop...More
