6 Reviews of Copper Breaks State Park
Peaceful and serene

If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place. It is a National Dark Sky site and perfect for star gazing. The sites are almost 70 feet apart. Well maintained. Daily activities run by staff. Great hiking and a nice lake. Staff super friendly. If you love nature this is a great spot. It’s worth a couple day trip. They even have a herd of longhorn steer.

Hidden gem

Great place to camp and unwind. The park hosts were awesome. Lots of wildlife. Great trails, but some can be challenging. Warm water in the Kiowa Campground. This is an IDSP, so it's great for astrophotography.

Pretty Cool

We camped here over New Years. It got down to 10°, which was crazy cold. This park is a dark sky park, but it was overcast while we were here, so I haven't seen that part of it, yet. The rangers and camp hosts were all very sweet. Bring a mallet and as thick of a mattress or pad as you can find - the campsites are rocky and the ground is very hard.

Desert camping

Campgrounds are modern with electricity, water, tables, and facilities nearby. The park is subject to being under a burn ban for a significant portion of the year. I forgot my shoes (this sounds crazy but it happens when you pack for five people and a dog), I really recommend having shoes at this campground. There are a lot of biting bugs and the trails are not easy to hike in flip flops. Trails are listed as being accessible for mountain biking, however they are not necessarily maintained for mountain biking. There is also a swimming area which makes the kids very happy.

Copper breaks is acknowledged as an International Dark Sky Park meaning that stargazing is spectacular. Kids can also catch fireflies, which are abundant in the evening and after dark.

Great Park

Great park with some great trails to hike. Restroom facilities are nice. Staff is amazing. We will go again!

First to Review
Known for it's dark skies!

The only reason I give this park a 3 is because we did not stay long enough to explore the trails. We went for it's epic dark skies! Took our big Orion telescope and had great clear views of the milky way, even got to see Venus as a cresent! It was very peaceful, went in March. More of a dessert-y feeling park so if you are looking for think forest this is not that park. We will definitely go again!
