Iconic Roadside Artwork in Rush Springs! The Dinosaur Roadside Ranch is a local ranch housing a unique collection of junkyard metal artwork. The ranch is located off US Highway 81, 4 1/2 miles north of downtown Rush Springs. The junkyard artwork collection features 2 ginormous dinosaurs, an airplane with a tin can man pilot, an assortment of smiley face-themed pieces and more! Several pieces within the collection have quite the interesting background in regards to their origin. For instance, one of the dinosaur pieces was built out of an old horse trailer and originally used as an animated parade float. Also, the airplane exhibit was used initially as an advertisement piece for rat hole oil field services.
The Dinosaur Roadside Ranch is accessible daily to all bypassers for roadside viewing; however, public access inside the ranch is not available at this time. When cruisin' down Highway 81, be on the lookout for the Dinosaur Roadside Ranch! It's a favorite photo op and stretch stop for Chisholm Trail Road Trippers!
