A small, beautiful park named after the pockets of copper deposits scattered throughout the area: great for horseback riding, hiking, swimming and fishing.

In addition to the regular camp spots this park has Equistrion camping with plenty of trails for hikers, mountain bikes & horses. The trails range from easy to more difficult for the experienced hiker. This park is regarded as a dark skies observation park, means you can see plenty of stars on clear night with very little light pollution. Nestled... More

Absolutely one of the best SP we've stayed at. It is a LONG drive, in rather remote country but TOTALLY worth the time in the car. All the trails are marked (though we've figured out what makes one more challenging than another is the degree of marking) :-) The park host Dennis and his wife were welcoming and very helpful....

We spent the July 4th holiday weekend at Copper Breaks. It was one of the only parks I could get a reservation at that wasn't completely booked. I picked it for a few reasons: 1) it was within a 3+ hour drive from DFW 2) it had availability and 3) it is listed as an International Dark Sky Park, so... More

There was an unfortunate event at the park and this Park Ranger was just awesome. Professional, kept his cool, smart man. He was dedicated to helping the children here. I sure wish I had gotten his name. He went out of his way to ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment. Really, a modern-day hero. The Park is quite buggy, though.

This park was a stopover on the way to Palo Duro Canyon. I'm glad we did. Like most Texas state parks, facilities were a little dated but maintained. There were plenty of bike trails that an average adult on a mountain bike can navigate. Take your flat repair kits with you as there are a lot of grassy trails with... More

If it's trails, fishing, camping, cookouts, or just relaxing it is all here. We have taken several trips to the State Park as a family. I would recommend it to any nature lover. Different levels of camping and hiking trails are available for different skill levels. Our girls love the back lake.

There are lots of different things to do in the park--you can hike or bike the trails, paddle your kayak or canoe around the lake, even ride your horse if you have one. There are 24 camp sites with electricity and water and a few of them are suitable for large RVs. You can also tent camp or hike to... More

We needed a change of scenery break so we headed to west Texas. We drove through this park and enjoyed the beauty of nature. The day we arrived was a free entrance day for people who had never been here before. Just past the entrance station we were greeted by a local roadrunner. I love these birds. We weren't camping...

This park was very easy to pay late at night when we arrived. Just put payment in the envelope and head to a site. Comanche section has electric and water. Bathrooms were open (no code or key), they were clean and the showers had hot water. Being a random Tuesday in Feb, every other site was vacant. The next morning... More

Copper Breaks State Park is a place for your camera. Located between Quanah and Crowell, Texas, it's Texas Scenery and Texas Wildlife at it's best. The cedar breaks and the rocky cliffs against the Texas sun makes a beautiful background for any occasion. Copper Breaks State Park has camper connections, so come take a break and enjoy the Texas sun.
