“Beautiful, but a little smelly in areas.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

The river is flowing nicely right now, but certain areas smelled like sewer to me. I was walking along the River Walk area and a noticed the smell. It was only in a couple of areas, not sure why. Would be nice to have a water fountain or two on the walk way, but there aren't any, so be sure an pack some water.

“Great place to swim or fish.”

Took my family and had a great time. Limestone bottom lets you walk right out in the water.

“Cool Place for Families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

The Paluxy River is great for families with children of all ages. There are places where the water is just covering the river bed and it was great for the young ones that we watched splash inthe river.
