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.

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.

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.

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.

Took our 4 year old grandson here and he loved it. Lots of things to do in the area, Fossil Rim Wild life area, Dinosaur World and the Tracks in the river bed at the state Park. Sites are large and all are back-ins, We have a 40 foot diesel pusher and the camp staff was very helpful in informing us which sites were large enough for us. Park sites only have 30 amp with water and no sewer. Roads were wide enough for us to travel through and there were no over hanging branches, The park does have lots of trees. Our site was level, all sites have a picnic table, grill and fire pit. Would recommend this park to any one with children or grandchildren. This park does get full on weekends so it is a must to have a reservation for the weekend. During the week is the best time to go, not as crowded and a great amount of choice of sites. Would have rated this park a 10 except for the no sewer at sites and only 30 amps We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Motorhome.

$25 fee, plus an entrance fee per person makes this a pricey campground. Smaller trailers and MH won't have any problem with the narrow roads, but in a larger MH or our 36' 5th wheel, the narrow road and dense cedars make it interesting to get into a site. The sites are close together, and most are back-in. With a larger rig, the number of usable sites to back into is limited. The area is a great area to explore and have fun in, but because of the volume of people so close together, do expect to have peace and quiet. We arrived mid week without reservations, but it was March. However, we couldn't stay for the weekend because all of the sites were reserved. We will stay again, but try to miss the crowds. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
