A small, beautiful park named after the pockets of copper deposits scattered throughout the area: great for horseback riding, hiking, swimming and fishing.

Took our Fifth Wheel out for Father's Day weekend. Nice little area to swim in the lake. Kids (8 &10) really enjoyed themselves! Hiked the .7 mile Juniper Ridge Nature Trail, beautiful views and neat formations. Nice quiet weekend getaway. Beautiful night sky for stargazing.

This park was a stopover on the way to Palo Duro Canyon. I'm glad we did. Like most Texas state parks, facilities were a little dated but maintained. There were plenty of bike trails that an average adult on a mountain bike can navigate. Take...More

Hi, what would you like to know about this attraction? Are the roads in the park paved? My husband and I would like to ride the motorcycle through the park. Are the roads suitable for a nice ride?

The roads are paved. However, they only go to the camping areas. The rest of the park is accessible by hiking, mountain biking (challenging) and that's about it. The terrain is rocky and the park host is in the process of... More
