Abstract:

Nearly 500 dinosaur footprints, pertaining to one ornithopod taxon and three theropod taxa, occur in exposures of the Dakota Formation in the spillway at Clayton Lake State Park in northeastern New Mexico. The tracks are in three horizons consisting of lacustrine or marine sediments, including massive, crossbedded sandstone, siltstone and shale.
