Question about Palo Duro Canyon State Park

CampingNerd asked on 1/14/2021

Could a a regular travel trailer with (1) 15k ducted AC, and (1) 13.k second unit keep the trailer cool enough in mid-June? I’m from Tennessee and used to heat with humidity. Wondering how West Texas heat is like.

It probably can. We havex31 ft 5th wheel with a similar a/c set up and only use the smaller bed room a/c to cool our unit, if we are traveling during the day and the unit is hot from travel. The heat in West Texas is probably higher than what you are used to, but the humidity is generally lower.

We were there in the Fall and had the opposite issue of snow, but we are native Texans and have camped for many years all over the state. Since the sites are 50amps and you should be able to run both of your AC units, I think your rig will cool down enough for a comfortable trip. That being said, definitely start your hiking early in the day because it gets really hot and bring a lot of water with you! Hope you enjoy your stay!

We have a 30' travel trailer with a 15k AC. It took a couple hours to cool it down once we got there with 104 degree heat but we slept fine at night.

if you are staying in Palo Duro I would think so - I had only the 15k ducted and we survived Big Bend Ranch SP in June when it was hitting 99-105 regularly during a one week stay - Palo Duro will be cooler than that in June. Recommend Mesquite campsite and 85 87 88 or 90 campsites - 4 bars if you have AT

Depends really on how hot it gets. The good news is that is not usually very humid, so that can help a bunch, especially if you get a shaded site. It can be tough to cool if your in full sun as the canyon floor can easily get to 120f....hope that helps

Sorry, we were there in the winter so I couldn’t give a good answer. If you look at the weather for that area, you should be able to determine if it’ll work for you.
