The Hackberry Campground was nice, although it seems catered to RVs. Each site has running water that makes it great for cooking and cleaning.

An amazing park down in the canyon. Very nice bathrooms and showers depending on which one you stop at ... and no cell service so just keep that in mind if it's something you need.

We actually camped in the Mesquite loop, but that option wasn't listed. Great scenery, wish there was a lake or pool here, gets real real hot.

Looove Palo Duro Canyon SP! Such a gem. Actually camped at the Juniper campgrounds, which isn't listed on Hipcamp for some reason, but I'd imagine any of the campgrounds would be great. The only downside is the seemingly never-ending fire ban. This is a very popular park, so if you can go during the offseason or during the week. Also, it gets HOT and there is very little shade, so definitely suggest fall, winter, or early spring.
