12 RV Parks near Canyon, Texas

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

Rate reflects TSPP discount for entry fees. The scenery in this park is amazing. There are several camping loops, Sagebrush has several 2x2 camping sites, so if you don't like a presence behind you or sharing a backyard, try for one of the other sites. Power was steady; water pressure was a little low when park was busy, 55psi otherwise. The views and vista's here are beautiful, there is plenty to see and do. The park is extremely busy; there is always a lot of traffic and a lot of people. This is not a "rest and relax" park. The quietest spot we found was at the wildlife bird blind and even there it doesn't last long. Trails are nice, but again, very busy. Also, several of the trails are multi-use and if hiking, you need to watch out for bike riders, they are usually moving very fast. There is a trading post with souvenirs and a café. The food is good in taste and portion size. The visitors' center offers the history of this CCC park with a small interpretive museum and gift store. The staff we encountered were polite and helpful. No Verizon wifi or cel service at all once you are in the canyon. We found a signal at the visitors' center strong enough for checking EM and VM. This park is certainly worth a visit, but we will not camp here again due to the extreme traffic and lack of relaxation and quiet. - Fixn2gocamp

Surprised this isn't a national park. It's the second biggest Canyon in the US next to the Grand Canyon. We stayed in the Sagebrush camping area. Road runners and wild turkeys roamed the camping area along with some deer. Heard coyotes howling at night, will never forget it. Campsites were grassy and well maintained and picnic tables are covered. Each site has a fire pit. The other camping areas have more dirt and sand and are deeper in the Canyon. Avoid the summer when it's super hot, though there is a play that is done during the summer months. - davis0056

Very nice campgrounds. Clean. Spacious. Quiet. Birds. Good hiking and biking. Red rocks with great views. Worth at least two nights. But be aware...10% grade down into the canyon and out. - FullTimer111

Nice park, close to Palo Duro State Park. We camped here because we had limited time and didn't want to drive our RV into the park (which is well worth visiting). Pleasant park with adequate sites. Many permanent residents, but this was not a problem. Good wi-fi and cell service. - jwppagosa

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

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

Booked this park for 3 nights and left after 1. The site was spacious enough and hooks-ups worked fine but the smell of urine and feces was just too much. People let their dogs roam freely to do their business wherever and don't pick up after them. Woke up in the morning and opened the door for fresh air, left within the hour because of the smell, a dog had pooped right at our door. Did not use the bathroom/shower or laundry. Park is run down and over run with full timers, the 9 1/2 mph speed limit is totally ignored, lots of dust with the speeders on the dirt road. I would not recommend this park. - mikeandsusan

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

Easy on off I-40. Truck stop at exit with DEF at pump. Wide cement spaces, level. Friendly staff with easy check in. What's nice is it just out of town so you miss the city traffic. Very clean, wide roads for big rigs. - 45parkcity

Nice park with all amenities. No picnic bench at our site. Occasionally you can smell the stockyards. Very windy our stay. Mostly short term campers. - Geno1986

Well laid out park, when they put it in someone put some thought into it. Paved roads are wide enough with room to make turns without obstacles on the corners. Sites paved and level, utility hookups readily available with standard lengths. I'm sure park design and construction was made easier by it being in a Panhandle flat field with no trees or shrubs. Some greenery has been planted so its not completely barren but no shade. I'd stay again for sure. - fulltimer121

We have a Sprinter-based class B. We chose this park for its proximity to town. We were warmly greeted and led to our site by a friendly staff member. Our site was large and long and close enough to the office for a strong WiFi signal. There is a small indentation on each side of the interior roads for drainage, bordered by a curb which creates a bump as you go into and out of your site, so go slow. The bathrooms were dated but freshly painted and clean. Soap, paper towels and power outlets are provided. A real plus is the ventilation; it removed the humidity from then showers very well. Every staff member was gracious and accommodating. There are fenced dog play areas and a large open dog walk area. It's very pet friendly. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. - leorah

Very good for our overnight stop. Very friendly office hosts. Nice little store and local visitor information. Free donuts and coffee in the morning. Road noise not a huge issue for us. Clean and safe stop. Fairly easy off/on I-10 access. RV size gas stations (Pilot/FJ, etc.) close by. - RPWAINC

This is an older park along I40. You do get road noise, but no different than any other park. Restrooms are older but very clean and accommodating. The people are very friendly and will escort you to you site. We would come back to stay if we were traveling through. - Kwanyen

We did a one-nighter here since we were on our way home from a long trip. This was a perfect place to stop even if it was for longer. When we return to Amarillo, we will stay here again. The nice thing about our site, #56, is that it had a private fenced dog area right by the trailer. Although they do not have WIFI, they do have full hookups: water, electric, and sewer. This RV park is right off of Interstate 40 on the east side of Amarillo and was very easy in and out. We arrived after hours but as we were looking for sign-in papers at the office front, a staff person came out to us from their trailer and checked us in. That's when they said we can have a site with a private dog area. We loved it as did the dogs. We will surely stay here again and stay longer. - Jtravel

GPS led me away. Park is just South of I40. Was looking at a PILOT station, and missed the park on opposite side of road. Gravel roads and site. Dog walk area and fenced in dog area. Of note, there are sites that have their own fenced area for you pet, part of your site. Will remember that for a future visit. There was no Wi-Fi. Cable at site. some site had a covered patio table. - Long Island Mac

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

I did not like the conditions of the roads which were rutted, pothole, and full of tree branches and uneven at best. The site was not long enough and had to unhook tow vehicle to park. Observed other sites parking in empty sites next to them which would be a problem for someone coming in and setting up late at night if a vehicle were parked in your assigned site. With barking dogs, vehicles driving fast and cutting between empty sites, I felt permanent sites could do what they want but transit overnighters were held to a stricter standard. The sites were very uneven and I had to back up a hill to rehook. I would not stay here again since management doesn't seem to be interested in repairing the roads or they would have done it by now. - Tj Hunter

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
