Lots of Stars at this Very Quiet park

This is a very nice park that is far away from the city lights so the stars are plentiful on clear nights. We arrived on a Thursday and there were only 3 other RVs who left on... read more

Thought I'd check out this park while in Quanah for business. The park ranger allowed me to drive through and provided a map with information about the park. It was a beautiful park with very well kept camping, picnic and activity areas. I look forward to coming for a weekend when I can stay and enjoy the trails and do... More

We really like the isolation of this park. It is usually not crowded. It has some great fishing spots, we caught our limit. Hiking was fun but bring water! You will not believe the west Texas sky at night. Come for the Star walk. It is a guided tour of the night sky with telescopes set up.

This is a very nice park that is far away from the city lights so the stars are plentiful on clear nights. We arrived on a Thursday and there were only 3 other RVs who left on Friday, so we had the park to ourselves. Later on Friday about 15 RV arrived so we weren't alone. There are many hiking... More

This is a great little park hid away in the valley about 12 miles south of Quanah. Camping sites provide restrooms. There a two lakes for fishing along with biking and hiking trails. If you want to do cross country running, trails can be used for this. The headquarters has a nice little museum for viewing the history of the... More

The last time we were out at the park, we took our nieces and nephew with us. They had a great time feeding the longhorns and playing around the water. We've been hiking with our preacher and his wife, camped with a group of our kid's friends, it's a nice little park, great staff. Beautiful view of the night sky.... More

My family and I camped for two nights. The park's strengths: very enjoyable and well marked hiking trails, family atmosphere, friendly registration, longhorns on site, the Kiowa (non-electric) sites were very shaded, the lake was lovily and peaceful. Flushing toliets throughout the park, so hiking is more enjoyable. Comanche sites were level and accomodated large tents (possibly several at each... More

Park employees were super friendly and helpful. As one other reviewer mentioned drought has lessened the appeal of the park so we had the park to ourselves. Car camped (in a tent) for two nights and hiked a total of 15 miles. The park includes rocky ledges, grasslands and almost desert like areas - interesting hiking. While you are there... More

Not a lot to do in terms of organized activities, but they have a nice buffalo herd. Interesting programs in summer.

Driving to Copper Breaks SP from Dallas, I spent several hours on the road, knowing I'm taking a risk but hoping for the best. Seeing any animals could have provided that. Unfortunately, nothing of that sort happened. The only trace for animals were the many dead turtle armors, that were to be found at large numbers close to the ponds.... More
