12 Parks near Canyon, Texas
Apr 2015 - $1.00
We pulled through this place because it's on the rim of Palo Duro Canyon. Only one RV was there in a Huge flat, level lot on the canyon rim. Office was locked with no way to contact anyone even though it was a Wednesday afternoon. As I said, no one was camped there either. Access to bathrooms/showers was blocked by litter and garbage, and some sort of tower under construction, probably for a zip-line. This place appears to be out of business as a campground. - Lost

We wound up at this campground after being evacuated from Palo Duro Canyon State Park because of an uncontained grass fire. The owners were very friendly and helpful and kept the office open late to accommodate us refugees from the State Park. It was nine at night but a young man offered to guide us to our site and make sure we got hooked up all right. I did not find the park to be the horror the previous poster claimed. I did not use the restrooms, and I did not see garbage piled up. We did see some broken sewer caps. The office building is run down, but we felt it more important that we were treated kindly and were not taken advantage of in a difficult situation. Bottom line is that the place is in need of some upgrades and maintenance, but it was quiet, and we would not hesitate to stay here again. The grounds were easy to maneuver in our 37' fifth wheel, and we had a great Verizon cell signal. We got a discounted fee I assume because of the late arrival and short stay. - bgbassman

We ended up here for one night after heavy rain closed campground access at Palo Duro State Park. This place is next door to the park. The sites are behind a dilapidated building housing an across-the-canyon zip line. The camping area is a grassy field, with old electric pedestals, some of which appeared broken. Many sewer covers were broken. The bathrooms were filthy. There are no shower facilities. Garbage is piled next to two small containers at the corner of the main building. We were glad to leave for our park campsite the next morning when the road was finally accessible. Avoid this place for camping. - leorah

We had an enjoyable stay and everyone was very helpful and friendly. We would not go to Amarillo in July if not for the Texas play. It's way too hot for us. That being said, I will go back in October or November. - whiteknights

We had a good stay, but it was sticker shock about the per person per night extra fee that got to us. We saw a road runner. Campground is down in canyon with 10% down grade but manageable. Lots of hiking and such here. - Firebuster

We were there for one day only. We wish that we could have stayed for a longer time. No cell phone service for us and out tailgater didn't work, probably because we were at the bottom of the canyon.
We saw the play "Texas" in the amphitheater and enjoyed it greatly.
We will visit again when we have the opportunity to do so and stay longer. Well worth the visit.
Our 40 foot fifth wheel gave us no problems coming in and leaving. - Reb Kitt

Stayed for 4 days for business in Canyon. Friendly, easy check in. Long, level, pull through with easily accessible, full hook-ups with 50 amp service. No cable, but clear view for satellite and 10 over the air stations (2 of which were Spanish language). Didn't check the restrooms, showers, or laundry, but they were close by. No amenities, such as pool, hot tub, or activities, but wasn't looking for nor needed them. Wi-Fi worked well. Small metal table provided at site. Sites are adequate width but if all were in use but would be close. There is traffic noise from close by interstate, but didn't bother at night as it was hot and a/c's were running. Not a destination park but fine for an overnight or few. Would return. - starwind

Park is convenient to Palo Duro State Park about 10 miles away. Inside the state park is a winding steep road to bring your rig in. No cell service, TV, or internet. Those things are important to us. We had no problem with cell service. Antenna TV worked great and park supplied wifi worked great. We were also close to town to get supplies we needed. Staff was always helpful. - RV Gypsy

We stayed here for 3 nights. It was very convenient to Palo Duro Canyon and also to downtown Amarillo. I would stay here again. We used laundry facilities and they were nice as well. - Dkkirkland

Utilities were OK. BUT outlets are installed UPSIDE DOWN. Park was kind of "tight". Because the people to our left had two vehicles we could not make the swing to pull out and had to pull forward through an empty site. A little creepy, but not overly so. Right off I-40. Our site had a view looking westbound.
We stayed here for a provisioning run.
Would be OK for another short stay. But I think I might try another one of the RV parks right in the area. All about the same price. At $36, it was OK but unremarkable. - Wjell

Website price said $29 actual was $33. They say pull through sites which is true; however, only if your about 25 ft. You have to unhook your tow vehicle as it will hang out in the road. Most modern pull throughs will accommodate 38~40ft rigs with tow vehicles or trailers. Bottom line way to short. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Internet was very slow and would lose connect every 15 minutes. If you're in a 5th wheel you will have to unhook. We where not the only disappointed customers. Will look at other options when in the area. - Sharjeep

A great little park when passing through Amarillo. The manager is extremely pleasant and helpful. We stumbled upon this park and were pleasantly surprised. The sites are level, the noise level from the Interstate is minimal, the water is well water and wonderful. Two wells on the property! We drained our city water and refilled there. Would definitely stop on our way through again. - cookie s

What the others said about this campground is still true almost a year later, same sweet old man, same price, gravel, sites close together, quiet, convenient. Laundry facilities ($1 per wash and dry, 2 sets) and bathroom facilities are in good condition. Some loose dogs, but not a single issue with my dogs. It is about 1/2 mile walk down the access road to the Cadillac Ranch. - MichelleKry

Very neat entrance and easy to access. Right off the freeway.
It was past office hours, but the elderly gentleman who managed the place came right over in his golf cart and checked us in. Nicest guy you could ever meet...could've been my grandpa. Price was fair.
Park was fairly full mostly permanents or monthlies (some need cleaned out, but overall not bad). Roads were gravel. Sights were gravel. Our sight was NOT level. Utilities were perfectly located. Very easy to get situated. Gentleman helped me get straight and even in the back. Barely fit and had to unhook (although he said staying hooked up wasn't an issue if I was comfortable with it).
We are actually in West Amarillo which may be an issue for 'walkers'. You will have to drive to town, but not far. Freeway noise is there, but not bad. Nice privacy fence along frontage road. Some trees and some shade.
I felt the value was good.
Pleasant stay and would come again. - phillipakelley

Believe this park has recently changed owners/name - no web site but phone number was good. Called ahead same day and was able to get site with late arrival (manager even came around to see that we found the site). The sites are close together and looked to be older. No problem leveling our rig and hooking up. There were several long-term residents. The car display and large cowboy statue are a nice touch. This park just east of the Cadillac ranch outside of Amarillo. Easy access to I-40 and there was some road noise (didn't keep us up at night though). A good choice for our overnight stay. - Dave Hole

Dirt streets, site not level. Utilities fine, satellite reception fine. Width of site accommodated parking spot for tow vehicle. Nice dog run area near the front.
Diesel way down Soncy at Philipps also has DEF (diesel exhaust fluid).
Good location with easy on-off to I-40. We felt safe in this park. - Kid911
Jul 2016 - $37.00
Pretty easy getting off/on I-40, but far enough away to not hear traffic. The roads and sites are gravel and level, but it's tight maneuvering. Our site wasn't quite long enough for the camper and tow: supposed to be 70ft. and narrow. There are buffer fences or bushes between sites. Utilities are up to spec and I suspect the infrastructure is good.
The whole camp and facilities are looking pretty tired, hurting for maintenance and the neighborhood is not friendly. There's lots of construction, but it's not getting finished. "No Cross" tape keeps you away from many parts of the grounds, facilities and entertainment. The Fort's prop structures are rotting, taped off and near collapse. Buildings are used for storage, not entertainment. The park's at capacity, but the money's going somewhere else. We've found another Park for future stops. - duster340

We camped here three nights on site 151. The site was near the indoor pool. The hot tub has been removed and does not look like it will be replaced. Our site was very long and ample room for our truck, 5th wheel toyhauler and our motorcycles. 50 amp service, water and sewer hookups. Cable TV was OK, some channels did not come in good. WiFi was excellent. Gander Mt right behind us and Sam's Club just on the other side of interstate 40. Diesel at Sam's Club was 1.99 which made our fill up great. We would stay here again. - New yorker

This was an incredible campground, convenient off I-40, large (yet quite), immaculate. One of the best pool and Spa set-ups, playground and separate ares for waling pets. Internal street wide. Friendly staff. Site easy to enter and exit. Love the buried RV at the entrance which put a smile on our faces after a long day on the road. Simply one of the half-dozen best of more than 300 different campgrounds and RV parks we've stayed at! - dandd

We love this RV Park, it's clean, neat and tidy. Tarmac roads and huge level concert pads. Very good restrooms and laundry buildings through the park with a large club house and very good pool and spa. Very good cable TV and excellent robust wifi even though the park was very busy during our 3 night stay. Very easy access from I-40 but minimal highway noise. - Harris England

This park still looks new, 7 yrs. later. Easy off and on I-40. The park roads and sites are paved/concrete and level with concrete patios. Road layout makes it easy maneuvering in a big rig. Sites range in width, but are adequate to leave the tow attached and gravel buffers. Every utility and connection is conveniently located and are up to spec. Facilities, grounds, recreations and luxuries were clean and maintained. Neighbors and staff were friendly and accommodating. This park has replaced our regular stopover/destination park in Amarillo. - duster340

Nice place. Clean and tidy with large open spacious sites. No shade but this is west Texas so not many trees here anyway. Had a late arrival reservation, and the staff had everything in place when I finally got there. Paved roads, gravel site as expected. Staff was very helpful in directions to an RV supply place for a fridge vent cap and provided a late check-out so I could install it. I would stay here again. - Jake67

Nice long level pull throughs. Wifi at office only. Plenty of stations on the roof antenna. Everything worked well. Would stay here again. - arkietraveler
Aug 2016 - $33.00
A good place to overnight. Roads are paved; sites are long, level, gravel. No need to unhook. Escort to your site, and the breakers are checked for you to be sure the last camper turned them off before you plug in. Indoor pool looked very nice, but we did not use because of big storm that blew in. No cable but good antenna TV. We were told that there is only Wi fi at office, but we were in the Class A section right by the office and were able to log right on, using code they gave us. Trash dumpsters conveniently located. Coffee and doughnuts every morning in office. Very friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again. - Seabreeze Texas

Staff was nice and the park was clean however, the place is a little run down. We stayed in a pull though for one night just passing through. Would stay here again. - MovinOnDownTheRoad
Jul 2016 - $35.00
Very convenient, friendly, clean, and accommodating. We arrived after hours, followed the clear instructions for selecting a site, and pulled in with no problem. All sites were pull-throughs, and the space between sites was wider than most rv parks. Plenty of trees and shade. LARGE dog walking area and separate dog 'park'. Some sites even have private gated areas in the site for your pet, at NO extra cost. There were some permanent residents scattered here and there, but it was not obvious. We will definitely stay here again. - BranTaylor

We stayed one night as we were passing through the panhandle. It is not a destination but if you need somewhere to stay for one night - it is good enough. The price is good as well. There are issues at this park. First, roads are narrow and navigation requires some skill if you are over 30 feet long. Second, there is no WiFi at the park. However, it is right off of Loop 335 on the east side of town with plenty of restaurants and fuel stations just minutes away. The family that owns this place are super nice. - cgaskins

This is a handy RV park for an overnight stay. Most of the residents are permanent, but the owner lives onsite and we have stayed here several times with no issues. The interior roads are a patchwork of asphalt and more patches are needed. This used to be a drive-in theater and the office was obviously the concession stand and projection booth and the reason for the unusual contours of the park. Shorter rigs may not have much to level but longer ones may depending on the site. The folks who own and run this place make up for the shortcomings. - Trailbuddy

Older park that looks like it used to be a drive in theater. lots of long term people. Reasonable clean. Hard to level up. - wchape

The lady that answered the phone and greeted is a sweet as can be. Many RV items in office/store. Good directions to campground and good advice about routes given. Campground is built on the side of a hill, so the roads inside have at least a 6 degree tilt. Roads are paved with many patches to ruts and there is actual grass trying to grow in between the sites. Significant ruts plus the slope will pop items out (drawers, closet doors) if you go too fast. Leveling was done manually, resulting in a big drop off the step out the passenger door. I wanted to like this place, but the continuous din of dogs (multiple, big and small) barking past midnight, trucks with no mufflers tearing up and down the highway below the park, and people yelling (10:30pm) just didn't make for a restful night. Walking my dogs was not pleasant (uphill/downhill/slope/ruts). I am thankful they had a spot easy to get in and out of towing a car, but the noise factor (dogs and people) would put me off staying again, unless a storm was blowing that would drown out the other noise. - GoldSeeker
