The best camping near Caprock Canyons State Park guide

Overview

About

This Texas state park sits about 100 miles southeast of Amarillo. Here you can fish, swim or boat on the water of the 120-acre Lake Theo. The park's also home to the historic Texas State Bison Herd. The bison in this big family are descendants of animals once nearly hunted to extinction.

If you're up for something totally different, take a trip through the Clarity Tunnel. This abandoned railroad tunnel has become the home of approximately 500,000 Mexican free-tailed bats! Wander in solo or get a guided tour from Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Hipcampers looking for a hiking challenge will find a worthy one in Haynes Ridge Overlook Trail. This tough terrain takes you to the highest point in the region. If you can handle the steep grades, you'll get a tremendous view!

Haynes Ridge is the toughest trail, but the others in this area aren't cakewalks either. The Mesa Trail is probably the best bet for beginners. Follow this relatively level path to an impressive canyon overlook.

Notable campgrounds

  • Drive-up campsites with electricity provide convenience for those looking to combine comfort with the great outdoors.
  • Hike-in primitive sites offer a secluded retreat for adventurers seeking a more rugged experience.
  • Equestrian campsites with corrals cater to horseback riders looking to explore the trails and rest alongside their steeds.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early, especially if planning to visit during the busy seasons of spring, summer, and fall.
  • Check the park's reservation system regularly for cancellations and new availability.
  • Consider visiting during weekdays for better chances of securing a spot.
  • Explore nearby camping options if the park is at capacity.

When to go

The best times to visit Caprock Canyons State Park are during the milder seasons of spring and fall. Summer brings intense heat, with ground temperatures soaring, making activities challenging during midday. Winter offers a unique, serene landscape, occasionally dusted with snow, but be prepared for cold temperatures.

Know before you go

  • Always maintain a safe distance from the bison; they are wild animals and can be unpredictable.
  • Check for any park alerts or closures before your visit.
  • Accessibility information is available for those with special needs.
  • Bring your own drinking water, as resources along the trails may be limited.
  • Remember to present proof of negative Coggins for each horse at park headquarters.
