Not sure about damage from the fires but the water supply at PKSP is non potable due to high salt content so make sure you bring plenty of your own drinking water.

That's a great article slide! Thanks for that.

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.

You're welcome guys. Even though that park is only 90 minutes or so away from us we haven't been there in years. As a matter of fact, we haven't been since we graduated from our tent camping days. From what I remember, it is a beautiful park. If you decide to go, please post your experience. We would love to go back to this park someday, just been hesitant due to the potable water issue.

that's never been a problem for us as we always carry bottled water (for us and the dogs) (never drink city water nor do we travel with water in our on-board tank).....Bill

I think you're on to something there Bill, I'll have to soften my stance a little and reconsider this park. An extra case of bottled water for the ice maker is an easy way to make sure the only salt used for my margarita is on the rim of the glass.
