  • 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+ ho...  more »

  • One of my favorite Texas state parks. I try to visit as often as I can. It's not as well known and off the beaten path so not as crowded as other parks. Excellent views of the Pease river valley, and 3 camping areas offer different experiences of the park. I really enjoy mountain biking the trails on the west end of the park. Will definitely be back again.
  • This state park is one of the cleanest and best maintained state parks I've ever visited, and I really enjoyed the little museum they have inside. It essentially consists of campgrounds among the mesquite trees with a few simple hiking trails - a few of which offer a bit of a vista. There is a small lake as well. It's not necessarily awe inspiring in terms of natural beauty, but it's fine. I'll also say that the staff aren't particularly knowledgeable about the trails. (I asked if any of the hikes were shaded by trees, and they said they had no idea. Then I asked which hike was the most scenic. The only staff member who had anything to offer told me of a hike he said was not on the map - but it was in the center of their map.) So - four stars.
  • Best stargazing spot in Texas. Loved it. It is so quiet and the sky is SUPER clear in November. There are SO MANY STARS, it's hard to even make out constellations. You hear lots of coyotes at night. Bring your own firewood (even though the rules say NOT to). They sell it at the park, but they run out, plus all you get are twigs that the rangers pick up. We had to make a trek into town and buy it at a grocery store which was very expensive! Hiking was great. Will bring mountain bikes next time.
  • Very nice wilderness area, and will maintained camp grounds. We saw road runners and rabbits everywhere. The showers could use a little attention, but we're a nice amenity to have.
  • This was a great park experience. I would recommend it for anyone wanting to get a different experience than the more popular parks. We're accustomed to the more heavily trafficked parks near DFW, and so it was a wonderful change of pace to be at Copper Breaks. This was our first experience in a water only site (no electricity). And I must say, the Kiowa Campground did not disappoint. It is secluded in the first set of breaks that the main park road leads to. Because of this, we were shielded from the full force of the west Texas winds. And at the same time, we didn't lose complete view of sunrise and sunset, though they were obscured by trees and cliffs. The proximity of the boat ramp - docks were my boys' favorite spot to fish - was really nice as I could be at camp, and the boys could be fulfilling their dreams as fisherman or catching the occasional frog. I recommended driving or walking (45 minutes from Kiowa) up to the Big Pond - great fishing and picturesque views of the park. The star gazing at night is also amazing. The peace and tranquility of just leaning back from the campfire and gazing is worth it. Great hiking - only did one trail - Juniper Ridge - but it left enough of an impression for me to rate this part 5 stars. Get out there!
