Somervell County

Somervell County is home to some fantastic attractions, entertainment, and educational facilities. For starters, the county seat of Glen Rose is the "Dinosaur Capital of Texas," due to the county's various fossil museums and especially Dinosaur Valley State Park.

Dinosaur Valley State Park contains over 1,500 acres of layered rock formations and some of the best preserved dinosaur tracks in the world. Activities in the park include camping, picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, horse-back riding (no horses furnished), swimming, fishing, and wildlife observation. The park also contains two gigantic fiberglass models of dinosaurs, built during the New York World's Fair Dinosaur Exhibit of 1964-1965.
