Information from the Dinosaur Valley State Park Website

Where Dinosaurs Roamed!

Long ago, dinosaurs left footprints in the mud at the edge of an ancient ocean. Today, you can walk in their tracks in the bed of the Paluxy River. This long trip to the past is just a short drive from Fort Worth.

Things to Do

Find dinosaur tracks, camp, picnic, hike, mountain bike, swim, fish and paddle in the river, watch for wildlife, look for a geocache, ride your horse, or visit our interpretive center.

Stay at one of our campsites. Explore 20 miles of trails. Shop our park store for souvenirs, camping and fishing supplies, books and much more. Rent a kayak at the park.

Discover dinosaur tracks

It’s easy to find dinosaur tracks in the park – just head to the river!

Dinosaur tracks are in the riverbed and are not always visible. Trails may be closed due to wet conditions or weather; please contact the park, or visit our Facebook page or Twitter feed, prior to arrival for current trail status and dinosaur track visibility.
Download maps on your GPS-enabled smartphone from our Mapping Dinosaur Tracks page.
Learn more on our Nature page.
Ride your horse
Bring your own horse to explore the 100-acre South Primitive Area. The river runs through this wooded, semi-rocky part of the park. No potable water is available; horses can drink from the river (bring your own bucket).

Take a guided tour

Eagle Eye Ranch Carriage Company offers a variety of equestrian services from guided horseback riding to horse drawn wagon rides, and wrangler assisted trail rides for children 3 to 14 years old. To saddle up and enjoy some spectacular views along the park’s scenic trails, contact them at 817/382-9855 or make a reservation.
