Owner description: Texas' last undammed river.
Reviewed 23 June 2013

The part of the Paluxy I am reviewing is the section in the middle of downtown Glen Rose.

There are some really great rocks here that are easily accessible from the parking lot and fun for pictures. This was enjoyable. The parking lot need some work.

On the DISTURBING SIDE, there is also a large sign warning about the health dangers of amoebas in stagnant water areas. However, that did not seem to stop several families from parking their kids and outdoor chairs in the middle of the shallow river!

Beautiful and clean river that would be great in canoe season which seems to be a big business there now. I have not done that and prefer to hike on the banks of the river and observe the wildlife.

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.

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

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.
