“Great Vacation Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Spent 6 days at Dinosaur Valley State Park. The area around the park is beautiful with lots of friendly people in Glen Rose. The park is really beautiful also. Lots of things to do and a peaceful place to just relax and enjoy the outdoors. The hiking trails are awesome and some a bit challenging. The views on the trails are amazing and well worth the effort the see them. We would like to thank the park staff for their kindness and friendly demeanor. I would especially like to thank Wayne the park host. He offered us fire wood at no cost when the weather turned a bit cooler and even helped us load it. He would stop by every morning with his 2 little dogs to say good morning to all who were up early enough to see him. He is a great asset to the park and we wish him all the best. Thanks Dinosaur Valley for 6 wonderful days on our vacation. Justin and Catherine Love

“Good place for campers and older kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We took our 2 year old here- and navigating the rocks was a bit dicey. Also a bit hard to see tracks. But we did this as a late afternoon thing, and we were kind of tired. Dino buffs - especially kids that like to be outside- would love it here. Just know that it is a state park, and nature is most of what you're going to get here. Beautiful place.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Took my five year old to the park. Very cool seeing real tracks. Might be just a tad over priced for a park. Not much to do beside trekking the trails and playing in the river. Had a lot of fun making our own paths.

“Dinosaur Valley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Park is great for very young children but not like a real life experience such as Fossil Rim and the waco zoo.
