Bedrock City and Raptor Ranch

This place is amazing. New owners (as of 2019) are completely rehabbing and restoring Bedrock City, which in and of itself is full of heartwarming nostalgia.

The falconers are currently doing training demos on demand, as the property evolves into its full vision over the next couple of years. Fantastic general store for the campground. Owners are friendly and will tell you all about the history of the place and vision for the future. Kids had their faces painted while we were there.

Flintstones Bedrock City

Stop the comically prehistoric bulldozers! According to local TV news reports, the new owners of Bedrock City -- who plan to turn it into a birds-of-prey "adventure park" -- will be preserving much of its Stone Age decor. Troy Morris, co-owner of the new "Raptor Ranch," said that its children's area will have Fred and Barney's houses, the Brontosaurus and Woolly Mammoth statues, Pebbles and Bam Bam, the dinosaur slide and the big snake, and all of the Flintstones' cars. He estimated that the complete changeover would take three years. Apparently Bedrock-City-Raptor-Ranch-whatever will remain open throughout the transition.

Bedrock City is open on Friday, Saturday and Sundays for the rest of summer 2019. Then it will close and re-open in the future as Raptor Ranch for birds. Hoping they decide to keep as much of Bedrock as possible for nostalgia's sake.

[Hank Gallo, 07/02/2019]

The latest word is that the new owners plan to keep some, but not all, of the statues, and will begin a gradual transition to Raptor Ranch starting in 2020.

Stopped by on 4/19/19 and it was closed, with a sign on the door stating "Closed - Farewell Bedrock" with a frowning face. We still took pictures out front but it definitely looks deserted now. Bummer!
