I hike (and camp) this park about once a year, and I just wanted to add to this listing that dogs are definitely allowed.  I'm realizing that the "No Dogs" on this site are meaningless.  not sure why it says this, but it's very misleading, my 3 dogs love these trails and every now and then we can crash into the river to cool off.  The campgrounds and tracks areas are very crowded but one hike I saw no one back on the trails, and another maybe 2 other people.  Great surprise, close to Dallas.
