Its a long drive through north Texas, but well worth the trip. A natural wonder, and Texas heritage all wrapped into one venue.

So, we spent 2 nights at the Hackberry campground. The best IMO at the park. We hiked the Lighthouse Trail & meandered around the canyon in our car on the scenic road. We tried for 2 days to see the longhorn steer they have by...More

We explored Palo Duro Canyon on a beautiful spring day. Lovely sights, very walkable trails, a nice tourist information area, nice little store/sandwich shop, and several picnic areas. Would highly recommend for anyone. Family friendly.

We spent time camping in a pop-up camper at site 13 on Hackberry Loop. I thought camping at this park mid-May would have us there before the really hot days hit but missed on that. All of the camping sites are down in the canyon...More

We went to the state park and drove a few miles into the canyon. From what I've read, it sounds like the drive on highway 207 from Claude to Silverton is the way to really see it. The state park road goes to the bottom...More

The park was a pretty drive but not one I would recommend. Looked like a great place to camp and hike. Lots of people there so must be popular for those activities. We just drove through. Pleasant drive but the real beauty of the canyon...More

I am not aware of any paved trails, but the dirt is pretty packed and I think some of the trails you could take a stroller. Most of the trails are short and you can meander here and there as long or as short as you'd like... More

It was real spotty with Verizon. I would assume it would be the same with other carriers. It is probably best if you plan on not using your phone while there.
