Expeditions to the North Sulphur River for Fossil Hunting

We have so many people come into the shop and ask Wes to take them to the North Sulphur River and show them where to and how to find fossils. We are gladly obliging those requests.

Everyone that goes is responsible for their own transportation to the river. Hampton House Jewelry will not be responsible to get you to the river or back from the river.

You can schedule a private expedition, or go with a scheduled group.

Wes is now scheduling trips up to one year in advance.

Scheduled Group Dates are on the First Monday and the Third Saturday of each month. If it is a Holiday there will be no expedition scheduled.

Scheduled Group Rates:

$20. for the first person.

$10. for each additional member of individual group. A group is considered family and or friends that travel in one vehicle to get to the river.
Private Expedition Rates:

  • 4 hour rate for 1-2 people $60 
  • 8 hour rate for 1-2 people $100
  • 4 hour rate for 3-6 people $80
  • 8 hour rate for 3-6 people $140 

Please call for any additional rates or questions about the expeditions (903)439-0294). You also may send us an email on our contact page. We will return your email as soon as possible during normal business hours.

A 50% deposit is required at time of booking and is non-refundable.

If you choose an 8 hour expedition, make sure to bring a packed lunch. The peacefulness of the river is a perfect backdrop for a refreshing meal.
