This is a private park right off I-27, very convenient for visiting Palo Duro Canyon but not in the state park. If it weren't for the convenience and not wanting to take our big 5th wheel down the steep road into the canyon we wouldn't have been there. Office person was very nice but the whole place is a dump. Overgrown with weeds, permanent rigs in varying states of decay, spaces too close together, area further down the street looked like a slum. It looked so bad we were really nervous about staying there but no one bothered us during our two days there. Would absolutely not stay again, but we'll never go to Palo Duro Canyon again either. Once was enough. Right after going to the major national parks out west it was definitely underwhelming. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground but too many detractors for us to return. First the cost: $35 was a little high but with the $5 entry fee - $40 was too much. No Wi-Fi or telephone service so we had to go into town which was 13 miles away to connect. Our satellite worked fine for TV. The steep 10% grade into the campsite was no problem for our 40' motorhome. The campsite itself was nice with water and electric. The dump station nearby was also very nice. Our hike into one of the many trails was excellent as was the scenery. Loved the howls of the coyotes at night and the wild turkeys and birds. And the Visitor Center was very good with displays and a Civilian Conservation Corps area which I enjoyed. It was a very beautiful place but we will not return to camp but find a different campground. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Motorhome.

While the staff, on the phone and in person, were very pleasant and helpful, here's a park where not much money has been spent on beautification and upkeep over the years. They must be racking in the dough however, with almost a full house when we were there. We were told that some spaces have a small "lawn" area in front of it, really just dirt and dry grass, but they sure cram the rigs in. You won't have much privacy. We went with the idea of maybe staying a few days, but left the first morning. Also, very noisy with the freeway next door and I wore ear plugs for this one. Very level sites, but why shouldn't they be, looks like you are in a former farm field or something. We didn't use the restrooms and the trash bins were across the street from the park. The town was easily accessed about 3 miles down the road, and I'm told the State Park is about 10 miles the other way. We didn't camp at the State park because we had heard about the very steep road down to the campsites there. Not sure exactly what we paid but believe it to be $29. Don't hold us to it. Canyon is the town where the Southern Transcon railroad line runs through, one of the busiest railroads in the nation with almost 100 trains a day, however, this park is on the other end of town and you won't find the trains and whistles to be that much of a factor. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Motorhome.
Nice little park for a visit to Palo Duro State Park. Management very friendly. Tried to get us into a shady spot, but the trees came down too much so they tried to cut off the limbs to help us. Could get very tight if they were completely full, but otherwise good sites. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Motorhome.
We stayed here due to the site rate of only $25 for a FHU pull thru & it had easy access to the canyon. It was easy off & on the interstate, but not noisy from it. There was lots of grass, asphalt roads with packed dirt and rock sites that were pretty much level. The entry road did have pot holes we had to dodge. Manager friendly & we were able to use our satellite. A few trees. We stayed here 2 nites and would recommend it to anyone going to the canyon. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Motorhome.
This campground pretty much like the other reviews have stated - basic parking spot with electricity that is convenient to Palo Duro Canyon. Sites not too crammed together. Reasonable rate. We got in late the evening we arrived and didn't end up hooking up due to the wind/rain storm that was going on. Park management was nice enough not to even charge us for that night. Would recommend it as a overnight stop. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed at this park because it was very handy to I-27. We wanted to visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park and did not read good reviews for the campgrounds located within the park. This park is not fancy and has some full time residents but it was clean and reasonably priced. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Motorhome.

All gravel and dirt roads and pads. Flat with a few trees. 2 miles to town. No clubhouse. No pool or playground. The pull thru sites are long and wide. All are FHU. No traffic noise. 3 bar Verizon cell signal and 4G mobile hot spot. Good satellite and TV antenna signal. No cable, but free password protected Wi-Fi. Office staff friendly and helpful. Park clean. Not a destination resort, but we will stay there again while in the area. Good Sam park. Cost listed for Freedom Resorts discount. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This a good location for visiting Palo Duro Canyon. The sites are long and level and all the utilities work properly. The rate is very reasonable. The Wi-Fi doesn't work and the bathrooms are very tired and badly in need of renovation. We would stay here again since there is nothing else in the area that is good for a big rig.

Laundry was clean with machines all working and newer looking. Restrooms were somewhat spartan and dated, but fully functional and clean. Some pedestals were leaning badly and falling apart. Mine worked fine and voltage was good. Park was less than half full. Manager was friendly and helpful. She thoughtfully assigned sites so as to maximize spacing between campers. Sites were a bit narrow but very long and perfectly level. Bring a long sewer hose; the connection was located really far towards front of the site. Roads were in good shape with speed bumps on main entry road and only a few smaller potholes. There was noise from the interstate but I did not find it to be problematic at night. Price reflects a weekly rate. We camped at Palo Duro RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
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 at Palo Duro RV Park 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.

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 at Palo Duro RV Park 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.
