Fall fossils in TX

Recommended Posts

Chuck W

Hello all, 

My since we just went through Hurricane Sally, my wife said I need to get out and go collecting.  Who am I  to argue!  So I'm planning a trip  to north Texas to collect. I would appreciate and help from y'all to point me in the right direction.  I have been to Lake Texoma and the Jacksboro once, briefly, in the past and really had a great time there.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'd try out the fossil park near Ladonia. It's a bit picked over more compared to other sections of the NSR, but there is a parking spot right off the bridge. It's a great place to start, with some cool variety there. 

Regards, Jackson

Look into Mineral Wells Fossil Park for more Pennsylvanian material.

Sounds good! Do you know if  the Jacksboro dam site is still open? Especially if I head to Mineral Wells?

Pretty sure it is. Just make sure you get a day pass for the state park so you can park and not get towed.
