Texas GeoCampers @ Dinosaur Valley State Park


We are a group of geocachers who hold regular events touring the great State Parks of Texas!  Our group will camp in a different Texas State Park several times a year.  For this event, we will be camping inside of Dinosaur Valley State Park, and we have reserved a group campsite for the weekend. Depending on the month there will be activities and ranger-led events, allowing us to experience all that Texas has to offer!  This GeoCampers event is planned for the weekend of April 9th, however some camping geocachers will begin arriving on the 8th to take full advantage of the weekend's camping and caching opportunities! You don't have to camp to attend, but camping is highly encouraged!
