May 21, 2014 - Caprock Canyons SP & More

Caprock Canyons State Park near Quitaque, Texas… if you haven’t been there then this is a hidden gem of park you really must discover for yourself! It is absolutely beautiful! Not only is the park beautiful but also it is the home of the official Texas State Bison Herd and allows for an opportunity to view wild Southern Plains bison in their native habitat. The park employees were quick to remind us that although these bison may appear tame they are wild animals weighing up to 2000 pounds and some of the bulls can be six feet tall at the...

Oct 15, 2013 - Quitaque, TX - Caprock State Park

Our trip from Lake Sumner State Park to Caprock State Park encompassed 215 easy miles across the dry plains in New Mexico and Texas. Caprock State Park is just a few miles straight north of Quitaque, TX.

Sep 26, 2006 - Caprock Canyons State Park

TUESDAY Today I left New Mexico and re-entered the Promised Land at around 11:15. The drive across the plains was uneventful. I arrived at Caprock Canyons State Park, just north of Quitaque, around 4:15. My home is in the Honey Flat Camping Area. My cell phone service is very uncertain here so I didn't even try to check my PocketMail messages. This park is the home of the "Official Texas State Bison Herd". These animals are descendants of the Charles Goodnight bison herd. There is a nice collection of two-dimensional bison sculptures on...
