    Pros: Just pack a picnic lunch, head over and enjoy the views!! Perfect! Watch out going in and out though a bit slick with the sand and rocks. Otherwise a perfect weekend destination! Pack some water...  more »

    Went down and climbed the rocks and waded in the shallow water! So pretty and crystal clear water. Kids loved it! Just beware, the river bottom is very slippery.  more »

    The Brazos river is shallow here and perfect for cooling off, climbing the Big Rocks or fishing. I grew up in the area and it's always been a family favorite.  more »

    Went by the Big Rocks a few times during our stay in Glen Rose. It was a great place to spend a half hour between planned events. Our toddler loved climbing all over the rocks and really wanted to go into the water. There are some sections were there was broken glass, so we had to be careful with our little one. There's a long paved path along the river nearby that was also really neat. It started with a walk along the dam, which our toddler really liked too.

    Stopped by before heading out of town...I can see it being a nice place to cool off but water low when I was there. Saw some people having fun climbing on the rocks with their little ones! Parking lot is small and rugged...

    This place is way cool for all ages! We'll definitely be back!! We packed a picnic lunch and spent hours between playing in the water and climbing through the rocks, our kids (ages 6-9) loved it. Would highly recommend WATER SHOES!

    Seriously in love with this place. It was amazing and shallow in parts for my little one. Then had a deeper areas for my bigger kids. Lots of river rocks and just beautiful cool water. The rocks are fun and easy to climb. My ONLY complaint was the fact that we totally didn't see the "amoeba" sign until we left. My little one was drinking the water and well needless to say I was a bit terrified for a while after, But that was my own fault! Lovely place in Glen Rose!

    Good place to hang out and explore. Just bring your swimsuit so you can go swimming in the river! The rocks are a great place for hide and seek too.
