This is run by the TDPW and a small entry fee. We were given a map where we could find the tracks. Found very few.

4 children -12 and younger really loved the fossil dig. The park is nice and exhibits interesting and kept everyone entertained.

Would definitely go again.

We decided to detour our way home to pass by here from Dallas back to San Antonio. Unfortunately we arrived around 6 or so so it was the warmest time of the day and with the sun going down and an additional 4 hours left in our travel home we couldn't explore as much as we would have liked. The designated spots of tracks are a great way to begin an enjoyable exploration to find more.

We like coming back here. Less crowded than previous trips and we were smart enough to come earlier in the day. We did more trails and exploring. If you want to wade in the river be sure to wear a a swimsuit or something that dries fast. The most on the rocks are slippery. Walking stick would have been smart but we forgot ours. Great trip. We will be back!

I went on a Saturday afternoon in August and it was hot! Be prepared for that and this park doesn't have a ton of areas with shade. Walking around looking for dinosaur tracks was a great time and with the river being so low we created our own little hike down the river to different sites (you can drive to each if you want)
