Welcome to Dinosaur Valley State Park! This is the dinosaur capitol of Texas and is home to some of the finest dinosaur tracks in the world! Here in the riverbed of the scenic Paluxy River you can see world-class examples of the saucer-shaped footprints of the plant-eating sauropods and the three-toed tracks of meat-eating theropods.
Ever wondered just how big these dinosaurs were? Take your picture with the two life-size dinosaur models that were displayed at the 1964-1965 World's Fair in New York City and see for yourself!
We've got something fun here to offer everyone; from first time outdoorsman to the avid adventurer.
Bring your bike or walking shoes and explore over 15 miles of trails that wind up and down limestone bluffs offering some of the best views of Somervell County.
Grab your bathing suit and a fishing pole and spend the day at the famous Blue Hole, swimming and casting for various fish such as Channel Catfish and Bluegill.
Bring your binoculars and bird books and look for the endangered Black-capped Vireo and Golden-cheecked Warbler as your explore the park.
Have a horse and need a place to ride? Come enjoy the 100 acre equestrian area located in the South Primitive region of the park. Ride through cedar uplands, down shady trails overlooking the river, or through open grass fields.
Attend an interpretive program on the weekend to learn all about the dinosaurs that roamed this area so long ago and the wildlife that inhabit the park now.
