“Can’t believe this is Texas!”

Reviewed Dec 22, 2017

Overall Rating

We have been residents of Texas most of our lives and never knew about this place until a couple years ago! What a treasure — This state park could easily qualify as a NP! There are three campgrounds suitable for RV’s: Sagebrush, Mesquite and Juniper. Sagebrush is nearest the amphitheater (where a summer show is held), is flat and si... more

“Stunning canyon views, clean, well kept campgrounds.”

Reviewed Dec 16, 2017

Overall Rating

We arrived at the Palo Duro Canyon State Park October 29, 2017 for overnight camping. We had reserved our camp site online in the Juniper Campground. Leaving Amarillo, Tx in the morning, our Garmin GPS had no trouble navigating to the state park. We were charged a $10 park entrance fee on top of our $26 camping fee. The state park is v... more

“Beautiful and peaceful”

Reviewed Dec 14, 2017

Overall Rating

I stayed 4 nights at the end of October. The $24 price was for the campsite. There was an additional $5 per day vehicle fee. I was offered a choice of the Sagebrush or Mesquite campgrounds; I chose Mesquite, and was then allowed to choose an available site number on the map. Mesquite is at the far end from the entrance, so it is very q... more

“Beautiful but a lot of bugs”

Reviewed Sep 06, 2017

Overall Rating

This place was quite the surprise. While driving through the Texas panhandle on our trip from New Mexico to the Carolinas, we found Palo Duro Canyon when looking for a place to stay the night. We came in at night and were surprised to see the 10% grade signs after driving through flat Texas areas. When we woke up we realized we really ... more

“Beautiful Texas Nights”

For the most part, I enjoyed the stay here. Beautiful scenery all around and some nice hiking up the canyon sides....but, I won't do this in summer again unless I get a better camper. It hit the 100 plus mark while we were there and it felt every bit of it. But, the mornings, late afternoons into evening were nice. What I will ... more

“Clean, well maintained, and beautiful views ”

Reviewed Jun 23, 2017

Overall Rating

We were in the Mesquite area which is at the back of the park. It was a partial hookup with 30/50 amp plus water. There is a dump station in a different location. Our dogs were allowed in the park and on all trails. It was very hot in late June so be prepared for lots of water and AC! A lot of trails to choose from easy to difficult.

Stayed here three nights on a motorcycle tour of west and north Texas. A great place, lots of wildlife and scenery. Camp ground was good, Showers at one out of order but rode to next campground every day to clean up. Great hiking and the people are great. Take your own drinking water, a little high at trading post. Will go again!

“Beautiful setting, nice new campground, lots of bugs”

Reviewed Jun 03, 2017

Overall Rating

Overall, this was an amazing experience, but the bugs were a bit harsh. Note as well that the $26 per night was just for the campsite (Juniper, the newest campsite - others seemed to be just $24) but this does not include $5 per person (over age 12) per day in the park and any cars in addition to tow vehicles were also $5 per car ... more

The per night cost did not include the additional $70 for a 12 month Texas park pass. Without the pass, it's an additional $5 per person per day. Campground looks tired.
