Copper Breaks State Park

Copper Breaks State Park is located 13 miles (21 km) south of Quanah and 22 miles (35 km) south of the Oklahoma border. It is designated an International Dark Sky Park by The International Dark Sky Association. The lighting in the park has been replaced to keep the night skies dark, and the park hosts Star Walks and other astronomy programs, including monthly star parties April through November. The skies of Copper Break are rated 2 on the Bortle scale. Apart from stargazing, the park is also visited for hiking, biking, camping, fishing, swimming, paddling and boating, and horseback riding. Sunrises and sunsets are reported to be spectacular from this park, especially from the Big Pond equestrian campsites (open to all campers), or from the Juniper Ridge and Rocky Ledges Loop trails, which give higher vantage points.
