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

Absolutely amazing. You all must go. Hiking, bike trails, wild life. Dark ski for astronomy. Beautiful sites. Picnic table, covered patio, fire pit. Wifi up out of the canyon. No phone service in the canyon. - DockmasterLynn

We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and fall weather at Palo Duro Canyon State Park. It is south of Amarillo and near Canyon, Texas. We were in site 86 in Mesquite Loop. Gigantic site with great views.
They converted Juniper Loop into premium 50A & water sites. Very nice with many pull throughs.
The park has many hiking trails. the views and scenery are breath taking. One of our favorite Texas parks. - drfife

This state park is very worth a trip if you are crossing the country. It is a very easy drive south of Amarillo. The 10% grade down into the canyon is a bit scary, but not difficult. Once at the bottom, you will see that it is totally worth it. - Chinnebago

My second stay here for business in Canyon. The only choice close to town. There are numerous other parks in Amarillo, approx. 15 miles away. The check-in was easy and friendly. They trust you, no credit card number needed to make a reservation over the phone. The site was long and level, utilities easily accessible. There was a power interruption one night as a transformer blew, but not the park's fault. They called the power company promptly and was fixed within the hour. Wi-Fi was generally good albeit slow at peak times. There are a number of apparent permanent residents but their places were kept reasonably clean and tidy. No cable TV provided but not really needed as you are close enough to Amarillo for several over the air stations. Also had clear view for satellite. Only real drawback is the traffic noise as the park is next to busy interstate. Would stay again. - starwind

The site we were in was very close to the trailer next to us. Our slide outs was nearly touching their slide outs. In order to hook up to utilities we had to venture in to the neighbor's space.
The internet connection was poor. As is the website for the park. When I opened the website the site automatically starting downloading stuff.
It is not a quiet park, lots of hardworking people living full time, coming and going as they must.
Electric, water, and sewer all functioned properly. The site was level, and pull through made for easy in and out. Laundry facility is convenient, and also functioned properly. - bekejebe

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

Camp host met us at the office and gave us a level pullthru. Good Wifi, Air TV, Clubhouse had kitchen TV Lounge, Library, modern showers and restrooms. Very clean. About filled with seasonals, but quiet and safe. Good overnight stop. Will stay here again. - Sir_Charles395

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

Nice place to stay for an overnight. The campground is level on gravel. We barely fit in length with toad, w/o unhooking out Jeep from 40-f0ot RV. While sites are close together, park was not crowded, so we had no immediate neighbors. Hookups all worked OK. Seems to be a well-managed park, not heavily advertised, so not crowded with customers.We would stay here again. - hoppytoad

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

Reservations are still made over the phone, but now your payment is processed when you call and you don't need to stop by the desk if you check in after hours. Rate reflects 3rd person (+$2) and Good Sam discount.
Started using this park 2014. This is my go-to overnight stop on trips to the Rockies and all things West. Overall maintenance and repairs seem to be improving.
Easy access from Loop and interstate. Sites are long and wide, never had a problem with a 40' MH and toad. Sites are divided with a low fence and have large cement patio with picnic table. Large dog park and other "stations" with bags and waste disposal. Playground. I read other comments about hot tub. "Hot tub" room has been a storage unit since my first stay; I wouldn't expect it to return. Gift shop for Texas related and crafty items is larger than most standalone stores. They are remodeling the store entry, however, and had NO RV supplies (they have stocked them in the past.) Stayed 2x this trip. This would be my 8th or 10th stay since 2014. - Gottawonder

Great park to stay at in the Amarillo Area. We stayed a total of six nights (3 at the beginning of our trip and 3 on the return trip home in Sept). The hosts are great. We did prefer site 163 on the return trip but any of the sites are good. Will definitely stay here again. - GT and DK

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

Stayed here in the past and have never been disappointed. Very clean, large concrete pads, all paved roads, good site spacing. Some workers staying long term but in one section of the park, their sites are clean and organized. Layout of this campground is excellent. Far enough off of I40 you barely hear any traffic noise. - FTatcret2013

Large pull through sites. Level concrete pads. Paved interior roads. Huge, private, clean bathroom/shower room. Easy access from I-40. Quiet park. This was an overnight stop, but, if spending time around Amarillo, this is the place to be. We would return. - usernametaken

We were headed to another park in town but decided to stop in here instead. Glad we did! GREAT park with paved roads and pads. Super clean and quiet. About half a mile off of I-40 but we didn't notice any noise. The cable channels were a little fuzzy so we used our antenna to watch that big football game. HD signal worked great. We will definitely stay here again. - OpenRoadJedi

My only complaint about the roads was the big curb you have to drive over to get to your site. All the sites are like this. We had a site near the office so wi-fi worked perfectly. Laundry is very $$$. $3 to wash ad $2 to dry. Did 4 loads of laundry and it cost $20. Showers were clean and roomy. Had a nice hanging shelf to put your shampoo, soap, etc (it seems many showers in campgrounds have nowhere to put this stuff!). Good water pressure. Campground is near I-40 so there is some traffic noise but it was not too bad. Office staff very nice, friendly, helpful. Nice gift shop. - Lynn and Linda

We have stayed at Amarillo Ranch a number of times over the last 4 years. On this stay we discovered they have limited their free wifi to the clubhouse area. Even with a range extender on the first row near the clubhouse we cannot pull in a wifi signal. RVers rely on good wifi at their sites. Sites are gravel and nothing to rave about. Numerous areas restricted from pets. - Txbart

We recently camped at the Amarillo Ranch RV park in Amarillo Texas. The reservation process, by telephone, was quick and efficient, handled by a very friendly and kind person at the desk. Upon arrival, we were quickly and efficiently checked in and escorted to our site, which was 122B. All the sites are pull through's with full hook ups and are gravel, and they are very spacious. Because of the colder temperatures at this time of year, we did not hook up our water and sewer, but instead used the restrooms and showers. They were extremely clean, and the women's shower room was toasty warm so that you did not have to get cold when taking a shower. The hot water supply was very efficient. The most enjoyable part of our stay was being escorted, by limousine, to and from our site to the nearby Big Texan Steak Ranch, where we had a wonderful steak dinner. This park is also pet friendly, and we would highly recommend it to anyone who is staying in Amarillo Texas. We would definitely return. - campers5350

Picked this park as an easy access from I-40 during overnight stay in Amarillo. Located conveniently across the street from Pilot/Flying J. Another reason we picked this stop was to catch up on some laundry after traveling from Alaska. Unfortunately, I could only access one washer because folks left their wet laundry in the washers upon completion. One dryer was out of order. Aside from that inconvenience, the sites were nice and long for an easy pull through. With a charge of a couple of bucks, you were able to wash your vehicle with permission. This amenity was appreciated after the long dusty drive. There were a number of sites that looked like the tenants were a long time stay. Overall the park is a decent park for an overnight stay or two, but does need a little TLC. - Golfgirl

East side of Amarillo and ½ mile off I-40. Gravel roads with gravel sites with trees and grass between sites. The sites are long, wide, level and almost all pull thru with FHU and table. Some freeway traffic noise. Electric good and 60# water pressure. Good TV antenna signal and free cable TV. 4 bar Verizon cell and 4G signal. Most sites good for satellite signal. Pool closed for season. No Wi-Fi. Office staff friendly and helpful. Park clean but old and showing lack of maintenance. Will stay there again. Good Sam park. - Pepper Dan

Ignore directions from GARMIN! Get off at Exit 75 - go north not a quarter mile - it's on the LEFT, right across from Pilot/Flying-J. All sites are pull-through. NICE park! Trees. Some sites with dog-runs. Power/water/sewer at each site - all clean and in good repair. Office folks as friendly as can be. Watch the speed-bumps near office. A bit of noise from I-40, but we had no trouble sleeping. Definitely stay here again when passing through Amarillo. - jtids

Previous reviewers have commented on the poor condition of the roads but if you take it slowly that is not a reason to bypass this park. It is the most handy to central Amarillo and a better price than some of the others that looked a little close when we passed. The lady who greeted us was the epitome of southern grace and manners and our site was just fine. Most sites had a bit of a slope which might be a problem with motorhomes but no problem with a fifth wheel with self levelling. One thing I would note is that the entrance is on the freeway access road not the big wide gate that you see when you arrive (which is the exit) so turn left at the lights. - KiwiRVer

Good place to stop for an overnight. Easy access on and off highway.
Rating is low due to very poor condition of roads, very rutted and washed out. Most of the sites are fairly long but only have a short leveled section which would make it difficult for longer rigs.
On site managers were very friendly. - Bullrider

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
