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

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

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

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

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

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

Large park with wide interior roads and many pull thru sites. Center of sites are concrete and the front and back of sites are black top. No issue hooking up sewer hose as I parked coach towards front of site and parked tow vehicle in the back. I saw units hooked to tow vehicle and hooking up the sewer hose was not an issue. There is plenty of room between sites, but no grass only stones. There is grass around the perimeter to walk dogs, and the fenced in dog run is large. There is a hot tub for adults only separate from the pool. There are a number of bath houses around the park and a very nice club house. The shower I used was private. It was large and had the toilet, sink and shower in a well lighted area. The park is close to I-40. but highway noise is not an issue. We would return to this park. - truckerturtle

This is a large park with several sites, All concrete or paved roads. 50 amp power available. Large grass area for dogs. Very friendly staff. Cable TV, WiFi worked great. Second time here and will stay again. - Robert and Monica

We have stayed here once previously, several years ago. The park still looks great. We were only there for a brief stopover this time, so we did not use wifi, cable, or any of the office amenities or food service. I like that Oasis is easy to get to off of I-40, and the fact that a Love's is just up the road. The park is safe and clean. The only thing I noticed about our particular spot this time around is that the sewer hookups are way too far forward in the sites (I have not read back through previous reviews, but I suspect that is a common complaint). If you disconnect and put the trailer all the way forward in the site and park the truck behind that, it would work OK (if staying for awhile). However, for an overnight stop, wanting to stay connected, it requires pulling out into the road and blocking the lane in order to be able to dump the tanks (or I guess you could use 40' or so of sewer hose extensions....). At any rate, minor sticking point, and certainly will not deter us from returning to Oasis in the future. - KeystoneTT

Good place for an overnight stop, and unfortunately nothing more. Sites were gravel and dirt, but was muddy due to recent rains. The curbs heading into and out of the pull thru sites were very tall and really rocked the coach. Office staff was friendly, but no wifi and no cable. Overall an unremarkable park, but served the purpose of an overnight stay. - SnlcoRV

This is a really nice campground in Amarillo. Sites were well spaced. Ours had grass, which the dog liked. There is also a dog run which she really enjoyed. Water pressure is a little strong, so be careful with that.
Washers (there are 4) are new and large. The dryers (also 4) do a great job of drying the clothes. Laundry is on the expensive side, but the equipment makes it worth it.
Staff is very friendly. The coffee pot is always on. Donuts in the morning weren't that great. They looked and tasted stale, but that's about the only negative we had.
If they had activities in the park (exercise classes, game nights, etc.), we would consider staying for a month or so. - Bobbi1948

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

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

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

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

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
