I live close to Dinosaur Valley State Park and wanted others to know there is a great BBQ Joint/Motorcycle hang-out just about 10 miles from there called Loco Coyote. Great BBQ and ran by some friends of mine. The portions are huge and the food is excellent.
Also, close by is a very nice place called Rough Creek Lodge. Set amongst over 1000 acres of beautiful land and a very upscale place well worth checking out. The Bar is way cool. Alot of amenites are there. Great roads surround it. A true Texas experience. Longhorns and buffalo can be seen on the drive in. Very nice pool and outdoor use areas. Also a very nice small lake for fishing, around 80 acres.
Also close by is a small Texas classic town with a great town square called Granbury. Many places to stay and eat. Very cool town. I live outside it about 15 miles along the Brazos River. Granbury is right on Lake Granbury. Well worth checking this area out.
