Great time

Spent 3 days here. Loved every minute of it. Beautiful landscape.

Nice State Park Campground

Honey Flat is located within Caprock Canyon State Park about one hour south of Amarillo Texas. The park has great facilities and it’s own heard of bison. The canyon is at the end of the Honey Flat Campground. Although smaller than Palo Duro Canyon it’s a beautiful red canyon photo op. The park also has popular well stocked fishing lake. Honey Flat Campground can host guests from tent camper to large 5th wheels and RVs. Depending on the location each site has some degree of privacy along with electrical and water hookups. They also have picnic tables with shelter, fire rings, and poles to hang shower bags and camp gear. They have a nearby dump station as well. The restrooms are located just north of the campgrounds along with a great playground for the kids. Homely flats is usually crowded on weekends especially during the fall and spring. I would recommend making a reservation a few months in advance. The park staff are very friendly and efficient. We like to stop over at Caprock during our trips up to Colorado and the Utah.

Great stay!

Beautiful park. Clean heated bathrooms. Tons of Bison and the views cant be beat. We stopped here on a whim and the campground was full. They were able to accommodate us for the night dry camping in the equestrian section. Was nice, not many people camping there. Staff were all super helpful and nice

Good 1-night Stop Off

A nice place for a one night stop off. Nothing fancy. Owners are super nice. They offer military discount. They have a chicken coop and sell fresh eggs for $3/dozen. They have a small swimming pool. The old cotton gin on site is a cool feature. It was full of dusty furnishings. Looks like they used it as a venue in the past. The back row of the park appears to be full timers. Be prepared to hear trains blasting their horns all night long.

Beautiful scenery

This is a really great campground. I would have given it 5 stars but the dump station is out of order and has been for a long time. The sites are very spacious. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The trails are well kept and plentiful for walking, bikes, horses. The lake is nice as well. And don’t forget the bison freely wandering through the campground. And the canyon views are so beautiful

Love the Bison

We stayed here on the way to Colorado. It’s about a one day drive for us from Austin Texas. The park exceeded our expectations for experience and amenities. We arrived at 7pm and the ranger station and visitors center was still open. They have a small gift shop and your can also rent items including fishing rods for the well stocked fishing lake. The views of the red canyons are worth the visit. The morning sun light on the canyon is incredible. The hidden surprise is the huge herd of bison. They congregate around the main entrance at sundown and you can get very close in your car for some great shots. The site was perfect for our sprinter van with privacy between the sites, water, and electric. We don’t need water or electric but find these larger sites provide some space and privacy. The sites have picnic tables, sun shades, and hooks for hanging clothes lines or drying out tents. We visited in July and the outdoor temp was 94 degrees at 9 pm. So you need to plan your visit if you are tent camping or you can ac is limited. They have great facilities including RV dump station and clean restrooms with showers. Lots of folks travel to Palo Duro which is just up the road but Caprock has a lot to offer. We plan to come back in the Fall to do some hiking and camping. Another good Texas State Park. The town of Turkey Texas is close. This looks like an interesting stop with cafes and a nice theater.

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.

Very pretty but dangerous

Lots of beautiful trails and mountains but BRING LOTS OF WATER

Nice place to stay the night .

Good clean camp ground ..I have stayed here several times
