This is a great 'little' state park hiding in plain sight. While not as big or grandiose as Palo Duro Canyon SP, I like it better because: * Fewer people. Not a big tourist destination but a place to camp and hike and still feel...More

We visited this park on Thanksgiving Day so none of the typical buildings were open. However it was an awesome stop. We drove around until we found the free roaming bison and a prairie dog field. We stayed in the car and took pictures. Then...More

We did not know anything about this Canyons until we got to Palo Duro Canyon and found a flyer about Caprock. We decided to give a try and spent half day over there. I would say, it is worth it to spend your vacation there...More

My family of four just left caprock canyons state park. We stayed one night (24 hours) in the park. We really enjoyed our stay at site 63 in the little red river tent camp area. It's a primitive site. No water or electric. Great views!...More

This is not only one of the best parks in Texas, it is one of the best parks in the nation. Hiking the canyon is incredible. Plus, you will see 100s of prairie dogs, bison, and roadrunners.

I have been there three times and this week saw the bison for my first time. Incredible as were the prairie dogs and road runners. The remoteness of this park is its greatest asset because I have never seen more than a couple of dozen...More

Caprock Canyons State Park is a hidden gem! In our mind, equal to its nearby cousin Palo Duro Canyon in many ways, yet better. There is the bison herd wondering the park, a really neat prairie dog town, the bluest skies ever on the Panhandle...More

Dogs on leashes were on the trail. Also around campgrounds, yet be careful when in Prairie Dog town or around the bison herd.

You can enjoy swimming, fishing and no-wake boating in the small, 120-surface-acre Lake Theo. We didn't fish but several people were fishing from a nice fishing pier.
