Palo Duro Canyon . . . just south of Amarillo. Nearest town is Canyon.

Great place! Be sure to take in the show . . . "Texas!"

No boondocking (I.e. Free camping). There are paid primitive sites, and electric/water. Don't know about size limits at any of these, but you can call to ask...

The sites in Palo Duro State Park are large enough for at least a 40' MH plus some larger.

Caprock State Park is nearby with large sites, also. Beautiful places!

And don't plan on much cell service unless things have been upgraded in the last couple years. At a couple places driving down the road in the bottom of the canyon we could catch an ATT tower - by immediately parking. There is a tough short climb back out of the canyon, too. (Yes, steep going down also.) There is a good Texas Visitors Center up on the east side of 'Amarillo just off the south side of the fwy.

We stayed at Oasis RV Park, Amarillo, TX, about 30 miles away. Used the TOAD to tour the canyon, and go see the play. Oasis a couple years ago was very nice. On-Site-RV service is available, or was.

Also, about 60 miles away is Groom, TX. You can't miss it. There is a gigantic cross that can be seen for miles. it is an outside sculpture area of The Stations Of The Cross.

Happy tails.

No cell or TV service. Have to ride to the top of the canyon if you need to call out or use internet. We were there in April and it was windy and cold, but went hiking and climbing the canyon wall anyway. Alot of wildlife. Fantastic place. Can't wait to go there again.

You might also look into Caprock Canyon SP just Southeast from Palo Duro. I am planning a trip there in March because we couldn't get into Palo Duro.

Texas Canyon

Having been to both Palo Duro and Caprock Canyon my personal preference is Caprock Canyon. That is my own selfish reasons. Palo Duro has a lot to do and see. The Play Texas and the Sad monkey railroad along with horseback riding can be done. Go and enjoy and then make up your own mind.
