I did the Caprock/Palo Duro thing the third week of March last year, so I guess it was the week after spring break. Anyway, we stayed three nights in Caprock and did a daytrip to Palo Duro. Our group had no problem getting three campsites in Caprock... but we reserved early. Caprock would be your best bet for camping, because Palo Duro is way more popular. The daytrip to PD was easy... no traffic and high speed limits. Get to PD early to avoid the long line to get into the park. The Caprock campsite had heated bathrooms with showers, and was peaceful.
Do you know anything about the "Rails to trails" backpacking trail along Caprock Canyons?
About 10 years ago I rode the last 17 miles (Caprock to South Plains) and back. It was the only part that was open at that time. That part of the trail was in good shape at that time.There's a few pictures of the ride at the link below.https://www.flickr.com/photos/qkh178/albums/72157601612097590

I think I read something about those trails a while back. If I recall the interesting stuff (the tunnels) were all caved in. The trails themselves looked long, flat, and very straight... not very exciting.
