“Beautiful State Park”

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 2 nights in early May 2019. We stayed in the Hackberry campground. The park was completely full, and we grabbed the last spot 30 ft spot available. This park is beautiful, and I can see where it gets it name “ The Grand Canyon of Texas”. They had some rain recently when we there so everything was green and beauti... more

“We love this park”

Reviewed May 06, 2019

Overall Rating

If you can get a space on the outside of the bottom loop, you'll get a great view of the canyon below and be relatively closed in. There is a steep (10%) decline to get into the canyon and the road winds a fair bit. Palo Duro is our favorite overnight stop on our way into Colorado or New Mexico from Texas. While not right off I-40... more

“A nice campground in an otherwise bleak part of Texas ”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2019

I stayed in the mesquite area because I wanted a cell signal and unfortunately ended up to a “Texas Sized” RV which ran their AC or whatever all night 50 feet from my head. Most folks who are insulated inside their metal cocoons maybe don’t mind this but these rest of us who are outside find it a bit annoying. Aside from that I a... more

“Very nice campground and well organized. ”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2019

I stayed in the mesquite area because of the Cell service suggested by another reviewer and have not been disappointed. Cost a bit extra for me because I don’t need the electricity but not a big deal. Site is quite nice and with a view the only issue I have is neighbors who are right next door and pretty loud out on their “patio” an... more

“Phenomenal Campsite”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2019

Overall Rating

Stayed in the Mesquite area with our Airstream. Perfect scenic spots that are so spread out! The views were priceless. Water and Electric hookups only. AT&T service worked great. No Verizon service. Dump stations right across the road from the campsites. Super friendly people.

Great view all around. Mesquite’s facilities are getting a little old and worn and we didn’t use them, but Juniper’s facilities up the street are beautiful and new. We were in a 39’ toyhauler and easy backin to Mesquite 81 which is a large site. Multiple dump stations in the park. zero cell service for us with no booster, but our neigh... more

This is a long drive. In Texas that means a lot. LOL. About 45 minutes from Canyon Texas which is a fair size town. You'll drive down into the Canyon. That means you'll hike UP on every trail. THis is a VERY busy park, even in the heat of summer. Midweek is the best time to visit. Choose your site carefully, there are a variety o... more

This was a great spot. There is some good hiking in the park and the views are gorgeous. We stayed in the primitive campground and although it was along the park’s main road it was really quiet and clean. There were port-a-potties in the campground and a full bathroom and showers about a mile away. There was no privacy between th... more

Long drive from our home in central Texas but it was worth it. Chose Mesquite campground because it’s at the back of the park, a dark sky site, and more private. Sites here are more unlevel and rustic than the new Juniper campground but we thought the scenery was better. We had a challenge leveling our 32’ bumper pull but once we did i... more
