Our dino crazy grandson loved this place. Being able to see tracks left by dinosaurs was the highlight of his vacation
This place is great for souvenirs, dino related stuff, and pictures in front of the life-sized dinosaur replicas! Way fun for the kiddoes...they feel like they were at Jurassic Park!
About an hour and a half from Dallas is a treasure of prehistory. The hiking trails are beautiful and the scenery is spectacular. There are fossilized dinosaur footprints in the shallow riverbed...while we did see one, that is my only reason for not giving 5 stars. They should be better marked. We went to several locations as shown on the... More
We took our RV and scooters. We thoroughly enjoyed the camping and taking our scooters all around and exploring. This is a very clean and family oriented place. January was a great time to go!
My husband and I always enjoy a good day trip to the Glen Rose area. You can actually step in the footprints of dinosaurs in this state park. The park rangers are very friendly and helpful.

We were so fortunate to visit during a drought period and see fossils that are usually covered in water. What an experience! We travel all over the country and have never had such a wonderful fossil experience. Never before could we touch the fossils and walk in the tracks. My son and husband were in their glory.
Phenomenal location to take kids ( or adults) that are interested in dinosaurs. I had my 5 & 8 year olds with me and they had a blast. They also really got into hiking, so we did a couple of nice hikes - one to an scenic overlook and the other up a dry creek bed (only real benefit of... More
Best to go in the summer, when Texas is usually in a drought and the water is low. The riverbed has exposed dinosaur tracks left millions of years ago in the sediment of the shallow sea that once was Texas. The campsites are small, but clean, and it's a pretty park.
