Set among rolling grasslands, Clayton Lake State Park offers trout, catfish, and bass fishing. Walk a half-mile to the lake's spillway and see the internationally significant dinosaur track way, containing more than 500 footprints dating back more than 100 million years. Plant-eating and carnivorous dinosaurs, as well as some ancient crocodiles, made these prints. Interpretive markers identify significant tracks and paleontological features on the walk.
