What an awesome surprise, longhorns & buffalo in one state park! I just couldnt get enough! We loved everything about this park! Beautiful views, lovely flowers and a wonderful memories. We spent a few + hours here. This is definitely one to check out!

Horrible experience. Stickers everywhere couldnt camp out. Some staff people were friendly others changed once you couldnt get a refund. If they get my full refund great if not thats horrible customer service. My kids were devastated when we couldnt stay. Then accused me of lying. I wouldnt recommend. Please fix this so people can enjoy themselves.

The views are relatively boring, but if you’re lucky - you get to enjoy the wildlife, I saw a fox and was chased by a bunch of flies and mosquitoes towards the end of the “horny toad” trail

Sadly, we ended up going on one of the coldest days. The trails are not marked very well after the trail start and I found it extremely difficult to navigate. The entrance staff was not super friendly or helpful (had to ask for a trail map/ asked where a specific trail was/ and where the best place to park is)- he actually appeared to be annoyed. I’m giving him an 80% pass because it was very unusually chilly. We did the rattlesnake trail 3.1 mile trail (I think?) or perhaps we were just roaming around lost for 3.1 miles. We saw some deer and there were lots of Buffalo from afar. There is almost no protection from the wind due to the desert scenery. I’ve heard tale when the weather is nice that you will see lots of 3 toed lizards. Kids and I plan on trying again and hoping for a different experience.

As usual, the staff is super friendly and helpful. We snuck in a quick hike between rain showers and had a nice experience. All the game trails can really make you question where you are, but its a nice place close to town to get away.

Really nice park with easy pull-thrus. Only spent one night but walked some trails and went down to the water. It was a nice stop over.

This state park is beautiful. The people manning the front office is friendly. We didnt get to see the animals while we were visiting but there was plenty of wildflowers on the trail and camping areas. The book nook is a nice addition to the park. I hope they keep it there and it gets updated as people pass by.

Stayed in campground one night in transit. Pleasant staff. Big sites. Lakes water level looked low. Scenery is typical Panhandle, but currently some lovely wildflowers and the prickly pear is about to bloom. Playground for kids. Boat launch.

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE!!! I get there, check in, I have to ask for a hiking map, the Ranger gives me one and Im on my way. After 40 min of driving cannot find my trailhead. I go all the way back to the entrance and the Ranger tells me shes sorry she have me the wrong map. Your kidding me......I didnt 40 min driving around for nothing. People who can give the correct map out should be in these jobs....... Its not brain surgery!!!

Uh.... this place was deadEverything was brown.... dried up. The views were horrible. The lady at the gate was as nice as peach pie.... we asked for a scenic view to have a nice picnic lunch... she gave us directions to the most crappiest part of the park. A total was of money and time. Im not being overly critical here... just giving our honest opinion. It was beyond sad. They should close this place up....

I copied this from my review of the main map location. I had a great time RVing here. The spaces are spread out so you can have privacy. But it would be nice to have neighbors a bit closer. Sometimes it is fun to mingle with all the neighbors and be social. Their staff is incredibly friendly and do a great job maintaining the park. The only problem is that they have a very bad wasp/hornet problem around the restrooms and the dump station. Other than that... It was all good!

Large park, pretty desert landscape. Minimal shade and poorly marked trails made an August visit pretty uncomfortable. Would be easier to enjoy in spring or fall.

Not my kind of park. I wont go back there. If you have a trailer maybe it would be fine but for rent camping its a no go.

So far so good!! The lake is low presently, the bunk house sleeps 6 comfortably. We needed to do a little cleaning, rule of thumb, you should always leave the place you stay cleaner than you found it, unless it is a hotel room, hehe!!

Im a disabled Veteran and am supposed to be allowed in State Parks for free. My family and I went here, it was right at closing time, I had all my paperwork to show the person working so we could get in. The lady pretty much told me that since i wasnt in the system we couldnt go in. She said, rather rudely that we could pay the money or leave. I guess that taught me to try to actually get any benifit of being a disabled Combat Veteran.
