We camped for a couple of days in Caprock Canyons State Park - Honey Flat area. It is so very beautiful and camping in a tent there is a true adventure. We had an entire herd of Bison walk past our tent and that was quite impressive. Make sure to layer up in November and bring extra blankets - it... More

We stayed here last weekend! This place is stunning and has a variety for trails! The scenery is awesome and the primitive camp sites are really nice! They even had a red roof at them! The first night we hiked down to the Clarity Tunnel, we stayed there one night and then we went and stayed in the park itself.... More

We did not have a lot of time, but stopped here for a few hours of hiking and taking in the scenic drive. Took the loop hike from the end of the scenic hike, great hike, not a lot of elevation changes until the end. Surprised by a couple bison as we hiked, also saw a few prarie dog. Worth... More

Nice this time of year. Can hike and experience solitude and nature. No one else around on trails except a few bison (keep your distance!) Cute prairie dogs who call out alarms to each other. Wish trails had been better marked. Restroom at end of drive not maintained. Was warm even in October, so have plenty of water. Worth the... More

Whether you camp or just go for the day, this is a great state park. Reminds me of a minature canyon lands natl park in Utah. Hiking is great. Trails are easy to moderately challenging for experienced hikers. We went on a Sunday and saw no one on the trails except a bison that thought the trails were his. Views... More

Enjoyed just getting away to this amazing state park. Excellent hiking trails, and scenery. Almost left the park without seeing any bison. And just when about to exit the park, saw a huge herd of bison.

We just left Palo Duro Canyon and drove down here for a couple days. Wow! what a beautiful place. The rock here seems to be a more vibrant red. This place seems for intimate than Palo Duro. You can hike on a trail and pass into another canyon which makes it more interesting. We set up our tent at one... More

I reserved a spot in the lake Theo area 3 weeks in advanced. Spots fill up fast. Got there late at night thanks to traffic. Visitors center has a self pay station so you can grab an envelope, fill it out and then check in in with the staff in the AM. It was tough finding our spot. I went... More

We spent a few hours in the park on our way to Santa Fe. It was a fantastic detour. The front part of the park, before you enter the canyon, is prairie land with some bison and prairie dogs. After you enter the canyon, the terrain and geology change dramatically. Both are beautiful in their own right. We were fortunate... More

My family and some friends spent a weekend camping here. Great place! It was pretty full where we stayed, but everyone was friendly and it was not loud or crazy. We stayed in the Honey Well camping area and they have a playground for the kids and a bathroom facility where you can shower. Bathroom was a lot cleaner than... More
