Dinosaur Valley State Park

Take a giant step into the past, and walk where dinosaurs once roamed. Dinosaur Valley State Park is the site of the first sauropod trackway ever discovered in the world. During the Cretaceous age, dinosaurs left their footprints in the soft mud of a shallow sea that covered central Texas 113 million years ago. Here in the riverbed of the scenic Paluxy River, groups can see world-class examples of the saucer-shaped footprints of sauropods, and three-toed tracks of theropods. Ranger-led programs and overnight camping trips are available.
