Caprock Canyon State Park
Caprock Canyons State Park is located about 100 miles southeast of Amarillo, Texas and 6 miles north of the small town of Quitaque, Texas
The park has only one camping area for RV's called Honey Flat. It has 35 campsites with 50 & 30 amp electric and water hookups. The pad sites, in most of the sites, are long enough to fit a 40 ft RV and are pretty level and flat.
The sites are also spacious that provide a little privacy and the trees provide pretty good shade.
There are three other camping areas which include a two tent camping areas and one horse camping area.
We love to camp at Caprock Canyons State Park but with only 35 RV sites available, they book up really fast so make your reservations far in advance. We think the park should make another RV campground. They definitely have plenty of room
Things to Do
There are plenty of hiking and biking trails in this park to keep you busy each day but be sure to bring plenty of water as the canyon gets really hot during the summer months. You can also hike the Caprock Canyon Trailway as well.
If you like to kayak, Lake Theo is a small lake where you can kayak and fish. We enjoyed our kayaking several times during our stay and loved every minute of it.
All in all, we love Caprock Canyons State Park. For us it is only about an hour and a half from home so it is good for a quick weekend trip. The camping is good in this park and there is lots to do. When you are out hiking and biking, or even when you are at your campsite, be on the lookout for rattle snakes. The buffalo that roam the area also sometimes wander into the campsites so be on the lookout for them also and give them plenty of space.
Cleburne State Park
Cleburne State Park is located at 5800 Park Rd 21, Cleburne, TX 76033 which is about 43 miles south of Ft. Worth, Texas.
This park has about 5 different areas to camp. We have only stayed here once and we camped at Poplar Point. This campground has 30 & 50 amp hookups with water and sewage, a picnic table and fire ring.
We loved this area because half of the sites back up to Cedar Lake. Not all have easy access to the water but some do and the area is covered in trees which provide a lot of shade.
One thing we do not like about this campground area is the pad sites. Our site was not level which required us to have to use lots of blocks for leveling. We spent our week with our back tires off the ground which I hate. So be sure to have plenty of blocks if you plan to stay in this area. Click here to read more on our blog about Cleburne State Park.
Things to Do
The biggest attraction at Cleburne State Park is Cedar Lake. There is a boat ramp to put a boat in the water for fishing. You can kayak or canoe on this lake as well. The lake also has a dock for fishing or you can fish off the bank.
The park has plenty of trails for hiking and biking. There is one trail that covers the entire park.
Although we have only camped here once, we really like this park. We did not get to hike very much but we did get to spend a lot of time on the water in our kayaks.
Every campground at Cleburne State Park has plenty of trees that provide a lot of shade. I think that's why we liked this park so much.
The only thing we really didn't like was the slope of our pad site. We had to use about three different sets of block to get level and our back wheels were off the ground. Most of the sites in Poplar Point are not level so bring plenty of blocks.
We highly recommend this park. There is plenty to do and a great place to get away and relax, catch some fish, do a little kayaking and maybe a little hiking. Click here to read our blog post on Cleburne State Park.
Copper Breaks State Park
Copper Breaks State Park is located at 777 Park Road 62, Quanah, TX 79252-7679. It is about 14 miles south of Quanah, TX and about 44 miles west of Vernon, TX.
There are two camping areas at Copper Breaks with water and electric hookups. Those are called Kiowa and Comanche camping areas. The Big Pond Equestrian Camping area is for campers with horses and has water faucets only. The last camping area is Bull Canyon. Those sites are primitive sites with no water or electrical hookups.
We camped at Comanche. There are 30 and 50 amp hook ups here with water and electricity. The pad sites are pretty level but they're not maintained very well. A fire ring and a covered picnic table are provided. There are no trees in this area so camping in the summer months can get pretty hot.
If you prefer more trees and shade, the Kiowa camping area has plenty. The sites there have 30 amp hookups and water hookups. They also have a fire ring and a picnic table.
Things to Do
Lake Copper Breaks is located inside the park. It is a small lake good for plenty of fishing and if you want, a little kayaking or canoeing. The Big Pond is also located inside the park where you can also fish.
There are trails in the park where you can ride your bike, or your horse if you prefer. You can also hike the trails for a nice long walk and you can go Geocaching. We found quite a few Geocaches while we were hiking on these trails.
Copper Breaks State Park is a good park to get away for the weekend. I don't know that I would stay a week or more here. While you can fish, kayak (bring your own kayak) and hike here, I think after a while you would run out of things to do. I highly recommend it for weekend camping though just to get away.
