This park is very clean and well maintained. Management is friendly and helpful. There were three items that were disappointing: 1. Many amenities were closed in preparation for winter. (Pool, one laundry room, the hot tub.) But we were still charged for "Summer Rates." (Read higher priced) 2. Advertised Wi-Fi did not work. 3. Our first assigned site was so short that we could not unhook our truck. With the trailer in place, the tow vehicle was across the road and within two feet of the camper there. Management did assign a new site without a problem. The campground is well located for visiting the surrounding attractions.
This is a very nice state park. Lots of things to do from Memorial Day until Labor Day. After Labor days most activities are not available. If you are going to stay any length of time, purchase an annual vehicle pass for Nebraska State Parks. $20.00 will save you real money in daily entrance fees. Lots of history with numerous historical markers. We will stay here again and take part in the activities.
This campground has beautiful scenery to enjoy and the "official" Texas state herd of Bison. They have many viewing areas for the bison and a very informative center located at the main office. There are a few Bison Statues located throughout the park in the open fields. These bison are not real, although there are plenty of "live" bison around. The park is well maintained and clean. Stock up on groceries before you go, as the nearest large supermarket is 52 miles away.
As we live in our camper full time and stay in a lot of state parks, Palo Duro is one of the best! It has lots of things to do, and the scenery is unsurpassed. One item that did stand out was the friendliness of the park rangers. They seemed happy and excited that you were here and their enthusiasm is catching. So far this summer, this park has been the highlight of our trip.
This is a "basic" campground. It has no "resort" amenities. No swimming pool, etc. The outstanding items are that the park is very well maintained and in great shape. Lush grass between the sites, and the sites have a fair amount of room between them. The owners will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. They also have trading post with unique gifts available. Not the regular "same old" "same old" seen in most gift shops. They also have limited food service. The only real drawback, is the trains that pass by frequently. If train whistles bother you, this is not the place. After a few days, most people do not even notice them. If you want a basic, campground, at a fair price, this is a good one.
This is a first class facility without the first class price! Price at $10.00 is monthly rate. Very clean park overall. The well designed sites are in excellent condition. No shuffle board or any other "resort" amenities but then again you are not paying for those amenities not used! Daily garbage pick up at your site. Propane is picked up and returned to your site. Paved roads, super clean rest rooms and laundry room. Owner is on site every day, and really cares about the park. We have spent the past three months here and will definitely be back.
