My kids and I love visiting Dinosaur Valley State Park. There are many hiking trails that lead to different parts of a dry river bed, where footprints of various types of dinosaurs are preserved. It is amazing to look back at photos we've taken of several different dino footprints. To think that they have been preserved for so long! When you enter the park, be sure to visit the information center and get a map to find the best sites for viewing the footprints.

We love this place. Very authentic, real dinosaur tracks that have been admired for at least 50 years. This park is well maintained and the park staff host events daily. It also has a gift shop. Dino world is just before the entrance to the park, dino world has animatronic lifesize dinosaurs staged in a simple walk-through park with a fictional dino dig and gift shop.
