This is the most quiet campground I've ever stayed in. The weather was unusually warm for January and the campground was completely full. At 8pm both nights, I walked my dogs and could not heard a sound - no traffic noise in the distance, no noisy neighbors, no airplanes overhead - just peaceful quiet.

Plenty of maneuvering space for my 40ft 5th wheel (all sites are back in). My site was smooth and level. Several small parking lots to park your tow vehicle or toad. Sidewalks through the trees to the restroom/ shower building so you don't have to walk all the way around the loop if you prefer.

VERY clean restrooms, showers, dump station, and no litter seen anywhere.

MANY very nice walking, biking, hiking trails. I didn't visit the campground store.

Courteous and professional park employees. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Big Cup Cafe in Glen Rose just a few miles from the park is a great value - comfort food at very reasonable prices.

This is a great park. The sites are level, with good shade and large enough for big rigs. I think all the sites are back-in. Water and electric are available. There is a dump station, but no sewer at the sites themselves. My site was fairly open but other sites have very good privacy. The campground was about half full on a weekday and very quiet. The restrooms and showers were very clean. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The park exists to protect the dinosaur trackways in the bed of the Paluxey River and along its banks. If it has rained in the recent past the water can be cloudy, making the tracks hard to see. But if the water is clear, the dinosaur tracks are easily visible.

Great place to take the kids. We had so much fun in the river looking at the Dinosaur tracks. The little museum they had was great as well because it gave us some relief during the mid-day heat. Campsites were clean, and I loved how historic the place was. It was great for my kids to learn some history! We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good park for walking and biking. Dinosaur prints were very interesting! However, there is no phone or internet service and no TV antenna reception. We were in site 16, but all the sites seemed fine. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate does not include $7 per person entry fee which is waived for annual pass holders. The dinosaur tracks were not visible due to recent rains which made the river too high and dirty, but it was still fun to be in the water. Some of the sites are very close together and would probably be best for a family or group that needs more than one site. Some sites are very tight to get into so a big rig might not be able to fit. Local attractions Dinosaur World and Fossil Rim Wildlife Safari make this a great place to stay. We will definitely be back. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Enjoyed our stay. Grandkids loved the dinosaur tracks. Picnic tables are on opposite side of RV at most sites so not user friendly. There is a long set of stairs behind one of the campsites that takes you down to the river. 7 dollars per person per day park use fee. Had several sites that would work for groups (up to 3 trailers). Restrooms were very nice and clean and central to campsites. Would stay here again. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are really great. Most are spacious and level. We stayed in #4 and we had lots of room to spread out. There are walking trails through all the sites leading to the bathrooms and along the river. The river was wonderful. Shallow with some deeper areas for swimming. We spent hours playing in the water, skipping rocks and catching crawfish. The dinosaur tracks are cool but kind of hard to see. We weren't able to eat outside because of the massive amount of flies. We must've killed a hundred of them. Bathrooms were clean. The price of the campsite does not include the $7 per adult per day fee you have to pay. Kids 12 and under are free. We would love to come back here again armed with fly swatters and fly paper. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great park for the kids. Nice fire pit / BBQ grill at each campsite, but watch the lengths of the sites. Most of them were fairly short, so our 30' 5th wheel was too long for most of them. Park was well kept, friendly park personnel and great trails. We'll come back for sure. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We took the kids camping for the weekend. I am glad we made reservations since there were only a couple of spots left when we checked in. It's a beautiful park with lots of trails. We had a nice hike through the woods. The kids loved it! The fire pits and picnic tables are nice. We would camp here again. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is another beautiful state park that is well maintained and comforting. We were behind schedule so I called ahead to check availability. The office staff was very gracious and assured us of a place to stay for the night. We did arrive after hours and were able to find a spot with no problem; however we were here in the middle of the week. This is a very popular park so weekenders will need to have reservations. It is heavily wooded in the camping area, giving you a little more privacy than normal. There is a lot of wildlife to look at and nice scenery all around the area. The dinosaur tracks are the biggest draw. Get up early and head to the sights to see them before the masses get there. I ran by them on my morning run and they were easily visible. By 11:00 the silt in the river had been disturbed and the tracks clouded up. I can’t leave out the trails in this park. Bring your walking stick and bug spray. You will not be disappointed.

The nightly rate does not include daily admission fees. We bought an annual State Park Pass for $60.00 that is good for a full year. The staff is extremely friendly at check-in and at the park store. Sites we rustic, tree covered, with no grass. River access was good, and the dinosaur tracks are well marked for visitors to see. Despite cool weather, the kids had a blast swimming in the river. Dump station is not level, so don't expect to be able to fully empty your tanks. It rained almost the whole time we were there, and without grass, our site was muddy. We will return again, but in warmer weather. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park staff were very friendly and accommodating. The park is laid out in a somewhat confusing manner, so get a park map before you leave the park office. It's a beautiful park with lots of shade and good access to the river, although you have to drive to it. The river access is not close to the camp sites. The sites are nice and most have trees providing some separation between you and the next site. Some sites are more secluded than others. Some sites are also quite a hike to the bathhouse, while some are closer. Park staff can tell you which are closer to restrooms or more secluded. Restrooms were clean and recently renovated. Showers looked nice, but I didn't use them so I can't comment on hot water availability. Only two areas provided good access to the river and the dinosaur tracks, even though more are listed on the map. This is a beautiful park with good amenities and friendly staff. We would camp there again. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We enjoyed this park very much. The scenic trails by the river are very well maintained as is the campground as a whole. We were fortunate that the river was low and the dinosaur tracks were visible. Campground personnel were very knowledgeable and helpful. The grandchildren loved it. We will definitely return to Dinosaur Valley. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
