Good Management. Paved roads/gravel spots. Very clean laundry. Location is everything; just down the road from Palo Duro Canyon but by the interstate. The number and quality of permanent RVs detract from the appeal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No frills, easy access from highway, level sites, convenient to Palo Duro State Park. Wal-Mart and grocery store are about 5 miles away and most other big retailers are within a 15 mile drive on the Interstate toward Amarillo. In November, the park was empty. The permanent resident living was OK. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was in a good location for us. It is close to Amarillo, close to the town of Canyon, and close to Palo Duro Canyon. It was easy to find. The hookups are side by side. The water pressure was good. Our cell phone and Verizon Mi-Fi card worked well. There is some interstate noise and we heard a few faraway trains. There are no recycle bins in the park. Not all the interior roads loop around the end of the sites. Instead they dead-end at the property line. So occasionally you see people driving through the empty sites. The pull-through sites were long enough. We were able to choose one where the fence didn’t interfere with our slide. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is about the only game in town, and it is in a good location relative to Canyon, but beware. It is increasingly run down: dog waste scattered about; some kind of weird odor in the dryers; and the manager. Well, I know he has some challenges at the moment, but he is a piece of work. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is convenient for visiting Palo Duro Canyon, and spots are level and spacious. The bathrooms and showers here are not very clean. The showers here do not have doors or curtains. Men and women are expected to shower in the same room, so we decided not to use those facilities. The management was very helpful and friendly, but the park has seen better days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a no frills, overnight type of park. We used it for two nights while we visited Palo Duro Canyon and saw the Texas Musical Drama. The desk staff were very friendly and I was pleasantly surprised at how clean the showers and bathrooms were kept. All of the sites are very flat. There are a couple of paved roads that the staff put us on, as there were some unseasonable storms in the area, so that we could pull on to the pavement from our site when leaving. We saw a wide range of small TT's to bus sized MH Coaches. Our rig is 50' total and we were easily in our spot. Will use again for layovers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground for touring Palo Duro Canyon...nothing special about it, just a nice little park. Our 2nd time we have stayed here and would again if we visit the area in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a good campground for a night or two stay in the Canyon area. Level sites that are long enough that you don't have to unhook your tow if you don't want too. Good electric and water pressure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in a long pull-through site but were thankful that this is the off-season so they aren't putting rigs side by side as there would probably only be 5 feet between us and next rig! The park is noisy being located at the highway on-ramp and with the elevated highway 27 also adjacent to the park. The park is conveniently located to Palo Duro Canyon State Park just 8-10 miles down the road. The Panhandle Plains Historical Museum at Texas A&M is also only 15 minutes away which is well worth the visit. There is a Super Wal-Mart and a United Grocery store about 15 minutes away. Note that this is a dry county so bring your liquor, beer & wine with you or be prepared to drive into Amarillo. Rate reflects both a senior and Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Restrooms & Showers were clean. The site was level with hard packed gravel with some wider spots. For us it was a perfect location. Temperatures would have been hotter in the canyon and there is a steep windy road going in and we manage to hit low 100's above. Everything but the main road in was gravel. There are trees but not very big. The Internet was iffy. It was quiet and dark even though it was close to the highway. Park was well maintained and the staff friendly. We stayed because we wanted to do the play and the museum on our way to high ground. We stayed 3 nights and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy acess from Interstate 27. Typical gravel parking lot set up. Great for overnight or longer if you want to visit Palo Duro Canyon and see the show TEXAS without taking your rig down into the canyon. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Right off I-27, nothing fancy, but very quiet. Spacious, long sites, excellent WiFi, friendly staff. Perfect staging area for visiting Palo Duro Canyon and the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum, or attending various functions at West Texas A&M University. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient park to Palo Duro Canyon: right off of I-27, 19 miles south of Amarillo. Good level, pull through sites (fit our 38 foot toy hauler) and some have shade trees. WiFi signal is very good and the bandwidth is good as well so multiple people can be on at the same time with no loss of throughput. Some permanent residents, but apparently the management makes them keep everything neat, as there is no clutter or junk around those sites. If you have time, be sure to visit the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, as it is well worth a visit. We stayed here for two nights and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night. The pull-through sites are plenty long (pickup, fifth-wheel and cargo trailer). Some grass was green but most was brown buffalo grass which just needed water to perk up and be green. Campground is fairly quiet and seems to be safe. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The manager's wife is in a cancer battle so his manner may change with the day she is having. I never had any problem with him and we discussed having a loved one battle this disease. I was camping with a rally and some found him brusque but once his situation was explained they understood. The Wi-Fi reception was excellent. The meeting room was made available to us at any time and was clean and had a TV. The camp is about 10 miles from Amarillo with many things to see. We were also about 9 miles from the entrance to the canyon. We took park in the Elkin Ranch breakfast and the steak dinner and play "Texas" in the canyon. The laundry room was clean, plenty of washers and dryers and a TV and table and chairs. I would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found management to be fine. The sites are very close to each other. This is fine for parking over night or two in order to see the canyon which is nearby and worth the stay. It is not a great campground, but it not the worst we ever stayed in overnight. No TV and the electricity can be a little iffy at times. I doubt we will stay here again since the campground offers nothing except being near to the canyon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the closest park to Palo Duro State Park (assuming you do not want to camp in the park). It is 10 (easy) miles to the state park. Most sites are side to side hookups. This would be very crowded if the park was filled. Road noise at night was not too bad. Verizon air-card worked well. The laundry and bathrooms were very clean. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The manager at this park is the manager from (the dark side). Don't park in the wrong place, don't send mail from the park mail box, don't park your car in the front of you rig, don't leave your space with your rent paid, don't leave anything at your space if you do leave. If you leave your space with rent paid, when you return you will be blocked out. And the most important thing is don't be a single female and park in his park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There is nothing distinctive about this park. It is everything the previous reviewer mentioned. The change I noted is that the rate is $28 a night, or $25 with club discount. They are no longer honoring the web-site advertised $10 off, even though it still appears on the web page. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Palo Duro RV Park is just off I-27 in Canyon, TX., 17.5 miles south of Amarillo. When you check in, make sure you ask for the $5 off Internet special (tell them you saw it on their web site), they also give a Good Sam Discount. It cost us $20 total with tax. Each site is a pull through with 2 campers each (end to end). There are wide roads, long spaces but close together, lots of trees, NO TV but it is very satellite friendly. WIFI worked very well and is free. It looks as if there are several folks that are here on a "permanent" basis but their sites appear to be well kept. The park attendant was very friendly. Our site was only about 100 yards from I-27 so could hear traffic. Not bad but could tell there were folks traveling up and down the road. Be sure to visit Palo Duro Canyon while you are in the area. We would probably stay here again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Called to ask to stay monthly, and wanted to know what my last month would be, since it would be a half of a month. I e-mailed and asked a simple question if I could get a half-month rate, instead of two weeks, and they responded by saying that I was stupid, and that if they gave me a half-month rate, they would be paying me to stay there, which I don't get. They than said DAH!, and then attached a picture of cheese? They were extremely rude and even responded back a few times with more rude and juvenile comments. All of this was over a simple question, a simple no or polite response would have done. The rudest people I have ever dealt with. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an OK park. The sites are gravel and very close to one another. Many units are, by the look of them, there all the time. I would stay again, but not for any length of time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful scenery: well worth the detour off I-40 to stay in this place. Allow a couple of nights and a full day to see it. Will return every chance I get. Got some beautiful photos of the canyon walls, showing the vast geologic features. Got a a slow internet connection using Verizon card, but no cell service except for a local network. Direct TV can be spotty, but we had a good picture where we parked. Ask before selecting a campsite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from I27 with big rig access in park. Sites are close together but mostly level. Good for visiting local attractions such as Palo Duro Canyon as there is not much to choose from in the area. Wi-fi works great and is free. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
