alphadog, we stayed at Tres Rios when we went to Dinosaur Valley, but did visit the park and walked in the dinosaurs footprints. It has been a couple of years, but it is a really neat place. Getting down to the river and the dino prints can be somewhat challenging for the "out of shape", but certainly worth it once you get there.

Tres Rios is our "home park" due to the fact that is the park where we signed up to become a member of Ocean Canyon Properties. A nice little park and Glen Rose is a great little town with lots of local attractions and great little resturants.

Tres Rios is pretty neat. But I don't think we'll be back because it is a membership park. We (well, Dad, and my wife and I as his guest) went there for the sales pitch. If we were ready for a membership park, it would certainly be one to consider, but we're not there yet.

LMBO & I'll drink to that..!

Re-thought the Possum trip - will wait until I see some "reports" (as it's a longer drive). The Wife (and children - our 3 Shibas) drove over to Lake Somerville SP (sans tt) today to "check it out"..

1st, it's sorta like Lake Livingston in that ya gotta follow a very meandering route to get to it - but that's "ok" 'cause we saw some pretty "back country"

the Lake itself in nice - we didn't know it was as big as it is.. there are no pull-thru sites and some of the sites are small/narrow but there are plenty of others that are large/wide - might be tough for larger rigs during the "season"

none of the sites have their own sewer but there are plenty of "community" dump stations - lots with elects & water - also lots of "day use" areas - boat ramp and docks for fishing

appears to be a very clean-kept park

we will be headed back there tomorrow afternoon or the next morning - have 2 sites spotted (the best of which is occupied) but we'll "settle" for our 2nd choice and have back-ups should that one fill today or tomorrow (again it looks like more Camp Hosts than campers - a great time of the year for us - mid 80s, cool mornings)

saw about a dozen Deer wandering in the middle of the day the short time we were there

will report further after our stay.....Bill

Somerville gets very crowded in the summer. It's a recreational lake all the way and lots of boats and booze and stuff. But I've never been there during the off-season!

Dinosaur Valley... Great Park! Took my scouts there many times. We only tent camp there, don't know about the sites for RV. Did not own one then. Just bought one this August.....Yeah! At this park, there is 2 life size Dino sculpture by check in, great for picture spot. The river there has real life Dino foot prints in the river to see and touch if the river is low. And a small exhibit room that shows the Dinos that did once roam that area. Cross the river and you can backpack and camp along nice trails.
