Truest one of the best State Parks in the Nation. Lots of hiking and the views are spectacular.
October was perfect time to stay here. Temp’s were comfortable. Beautiful canyon, colors are unbelievable. Really enjoyed this State Park. Will visit again!
A wonderful campground with access to trails and lovely stargazing.
Juniper site 113, full hook ups, right across from bathrooms/showers which are well kept and nice! Cell service is sketchy— tv reception got a few digital channels. Fire pit/grill combo, covered picnic table. Lots of hiking trails. Well spaced sites with privacy.
The beauty of this park is incredible- even in the dead of winter! Amazing hikes. Nice campgrounds and amenities.
Unexpected beautiful canyon in northern Texas! Beautiful views and clean, well maintained tent sites! Many trails walking distance from your camp and shared water spigots near sites. Come for the canyon and stay for Texas the musical! That exceeded my expectations too!
My husband and i were here in late august,2018 and the flies and bugs were so awful we could do nothing outside at our campsite. The tent campsite was poor compared to others. The bathrooms were horrible, no hot water in the shower, no water pressure, and simply nasty, not sure when they had been cleaned. The views are amazing and the hike we completed was challenging due to the heat (108). We recommend coming in spring or late fall.
Palo Duro Canyon reminds me a lot of Southern Utah with it's mountain biking and hiking trails. It’s a 20 minute drive from Amarillo, Texas.
We did the hike to the Lighthouse and it was a great hike for experienced more experienced hikers. This park is a real gem that deserves more than the one day we spent here.
During this trip, we stayed the night in the park at mesquite campground and it was a great spot. Nice nights stay despite the heat. Dogs are welcome and allowed on all trails with leash.
You’ll be amazed at the beauty this canyon offers. It gives you a variety of trials and camping areas.
We had a wonderful experience here back in April 2018. You can look up from most campsites and see the cliffs. Trails to walk around and an awesome gift shop with fountain drinks and plenty of snacks. The turkeys were walking around the campsites. Our camp host rode around talking to all campers on his jeep. People talked to one another in the mornings and evenings. I give credit to our park host for telling us all the info we needed to know and creating a safe atmosphere. Great place for Hiking, Biking, and Equestrian events.
