Wow - this park is really beautiful! The scenery is great, there's lots of wildlife, and the sites are very private, with trees growing between them. The Honea Flat campground is very nicely designed, with one major exception - the sites are all inexplicably slanted in the wrong direction, so that every single parking space requires a blind back-in. The wifi signal was very good. Cell service was spotty, but that could have been because it was stormy most of the time I was there. The lady who checked me in was officious and snippy - she only wanted to answer the questions she thought I had, not the ones I actually had. But I did not interact with any other employees, and its probably not fair to judge them all by her. I will be back to this park, and highly recommend it. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

As I was leaving the area, I saw an old fashioned outdoor movie theater called "Midway." It was about 5 miles east of the town of Quitaque. It had a sign saying closed for winter (in April), but it looked like fun. It was less than 10 miles from the park.

This is a gem of the southwest. I wish I could post a photo or 100 to show you the magnificent views of this canyon. There is no view from the campsites, but only a short car ride for those who don't like hiking. And if you do enjoy hiking, bring your hiking boots! And your camera. My suggestion would to come in the spring or fall. August was way too hot. I am a Texan and should have known better. We did get to enjoy the canyon in the cool of the morning. The campsites are nicely spaced and each has a covered picnic table. Not much shade, but there are trees that give a little buffer from neighbors. There is one main restroom/bathing facility. Mostly clean - showers could use some care. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great scenery, quiet, spacious sites with table and shelter. Wild Bison roam free in park, but not in camping area. Fishing lake with easy access. Great hiking and biking trails - horse trails too. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow, very hot while we were there! No shade for the RV or truck, but there was a shade shelter for the table and grill. Site had some slope to it, but not too bad. You can see the Texas State Bison herd here, along with prairie dogs, rabbits, and rattlesnakes! There is a very scenic drive, and some very scenic hiking trails. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very scenic state park with level sites with good space between. Nice shelters with table and fire ring (buy some wood for campfire in Quitaque). Numerous mountain bike and hiking trails. We saw bison up close (do not approach or try to feed), a roadrunner, and a prairie dog town. Very friendly and helpful personnel at the interesting visitor's center. Be warned the center closes at 5 PM. Only ding was confusion on the assigned sites. We had made a reservation weeks in advance, but camp host was confused and did not have correct information as to site that was assigned. The campground was crowded and it was every man for himself. No sites were marked as reserved and some people were blocking sites with chairs, and people without reservations were taking sites, although the sign at the entrance said all sites were reserved. Camp host was clueless as to assigned sites. The site assigned to us was incorrect, a 30 amp instead of 50 as reserved, and someone had already taken that site anyway. To be fair, the host said it was his first day on the job. Suggest they put notices on the sites as "reserved" with name of camper. A minor annoyance. We will return. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Motorhome.

Upon checking in at the visitor center, we were greeted by a "less than friendly" park ranger and volunteer. I was glad that we were able to use our Texas State Park Pass discount that was available, as I would have moved on. If you choose to camp here, I would make sure to fuel up before making your way to the campground. Also, make sure you have plenty of food, as you will have a long way to travel to get groceries or find a good place to eat. We've been to Palo Duro Canyon, and I would certainly skip Caprock for Palo Duro, any day of the week. The mesquite bushes did very little to provide shade. The bathrooms had broken tiles and "un-invitable." Cell service and internet were NON-EXISTENT! I had to "beg" to get the free audio CD tour of the park. It was also: uneventful.

This is a beautiful state park. The canyon & the drive through the park is stunning. We saw numerous deer when driving through & saw the bison. Campground is very nice & sites are level. Lots of hiking trails. We will return. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is located in a mesquite thicket. The mesquite trees provide a moderate degree of privacy from neighboring campers but not a lot of shade. The campsites are all back ins and paved and level. Rate shown is for a 50 amp site. 30 amp sites are only $15. This park is home to the Texas state bison herd. The canyon is beautiful and it is a short (1/2 mile) walk to get to it. It is not visible from the campground. There are a lot of trails here for hikers and bikers and horseback riders. The restrooms were clean, but the showers had some tiles missing, and it looked like they needed a makeover. The visitor center is new and has a store that sells t-shirts, hats, etc. but no camping supplies. It is only 3 miles in to Quitaqua where there is a well stocked grocery store. We would stay here again We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place to visit. The trailer area was way out of the way where the actual views were. You have to drive to soak in all the beauty. If you are a tent camper, you can sleep where all the beauty is, without water or electric hook-ups. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ruggedly beautiful, remote state park. Campground is set among a bunch of mesquite trees. The campsites are spaced far enough apart and, with the mesquite trees, there is plenty of privacy. There are quite a few hiking trails and the drive into the canyon is stunning. The Texas State Bison heard also roams through the park (but not the campground). It was definitely worth the trip. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A great state park. Has large level sites with good electrical and water connections. Tremendous views but very very hot in the summer. We would come again, but during a cooler season. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Motorhome.

Fantastic views although Honey Flats campground doesn't have the canyon views. Clean restrooms, large sites with privacy, shaded picnic tables and fire ring in Honey Flats. Good hiking. Good interpretive programs at the amphitheater and the bison herd is really interesting to watch. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Beautiful area, nice hikes. Privacy between campsites and quiet. Bison herd allowed to roam but not near campsites. Lot's of wildlife in area. Lake is down but pretty to look at and I saw people catching fish. We are in a 34' fifth wheel, no problem getting in to a site. The only complaint I have would be the three dollar entry fee per day for camping. Why not just say the camping per day is 18 bucks? I guess if you pay 70 dollars for a Texas pass it will go back down to 15 dollars. Seems like a long way around to me. Just charge "out of state" people 18 and Texas 15...I'm from out of state and I don't mind paying a little extra since I don't pay state tax here. I just don't like feeling tricked.

We camped here for 6 nights during the 100 year celebration of the Southern Bison Herd. The herd has been released in the park to roam their original grasslands. The sites are large and very easily accommodated our 39' 5th wheel. 30 and 50 amp service is available. Each site has a covered picnic table with a grill/fire ring. There is a burn ban currently in place. We rented horses from a man in Quitaque and he delivered them to the park for us. A trail ride was part of the weekend celebration and the folks kindly let us tag along on our horses. I highly recommend doing this is possible because you get a very different perspective of the canyon from the bottom of the canyon on the back of a horse. There are great hiking and riding trails. There is also the Trailway system which is part of the park but accessed outside of the park. It was a railway that had been abandoned and has the only RxR tunnel in Texas. Good for hiking and biking. The canyon is glorious and the history of the area is part of the lore that made Texas great. The bath and showers were very clean. I would go back as many times as I could. For those who cannot handle heat, I would recommend camping in the spring or early fall. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
