A great river that is shallow enough for all to enjoy but deep enough and bordered by undisturbed greenery. Make sure to stop by "Big Rocks (30-45min) " and "Dinosaur Valley State Park (1-6 hours)" to really appreciate the river.

This was a calm river and we were able to swim in it and hike along it. We really enjoyed spending time here and had a great time!

Oakdale RV park is right across the street from part of the Paluxy River. Big Rock Park has huge rocks that you can play, walk through and climb on and or play in the river. Fun times

Shallow rock-bed river where dinosaurs used to tread. For free fun, start off at Big Rocks Park in the river town of Glen Rose. Scramble over the boulders, or just head straight to the river's clear water, soaking up nature. Fun for splashing kids and...More

The river is a good place to wade, fish, canoe or tube in. It is also nice for locals just to enjoy the view.

Water flow in the River depends on the rainfall received by then. There will be water in July, but flow could be low.

Charges vary by vendor. The river is very low right now. You need to call ahead before planning something.
