Palo Duro RV Park

Overall a very nice stay for a couple of nights

We stayed here for two nights in June for our visit to the nearby State Park and to see the show"Texas." There was a heatwave in the Panhandle when we were here(117 degrees at bottom of Canyon!), so we gave up our spot in the park itself for the relatively cooler 107 degrees in Canyon, TX. So we booked at the last minute, but we got a great pull through 50amp spot.

The first impression of the place is that it's clearly been around for awhile. Some weeds amongst the trees. It feels like a site in northwest Texas. It's not beautifully groomed or landscaped. But is was a more than adequate home for us for two days. Our initial contact with the office was a great, efficient experience. Friendly service then and when we arrived 45 minutes later. I was worried our site might be a bit uneven, as the ground was generally pock-marked with small dips, but our auto-levelers had us level on the first try without any blocks needed. That rarely happens! All utilities were close together and set up was a breeze. We did not even try the wifi. I just used my very strong Verizon hotspot, and that worked for brief TV viewing in the evenings.

We were parked near the "clubhouse" which we stepped into briefly. Pool table, books, restrooms and VHS tapes to borrow. That gives you an idea that this place could benefit from a little upgrade. The small outdoor area had a porch swing, horseshoes, and a few other games, along with a large firepit. During our time there, we never saw anyone availing themselves of ANY of it. Probably just too darn hot! The building next to it was the restroom, laundry, shower facility, but we did not look in. 

There are speedbumps on the main drive up to the office. I didn't care for taking my motorhome and tow vehicle over those...I feel it was noisy overkill. But otherwise, we had no serious complaints and we enjoyed our stay in this modest but friendly place.(Oh, and the highway is fairly nearby, but just far enough away that we didn't really hear much traffic. Never impacted our ability to sleep!)
