Palo duro canyon state park?

I have read over the web site. It looks a lot like Disney Land! Everything cost money! I understand and am not complaining, but can someone give me a feel for the cost for a guy and gal that wants to park there rig on top and drive the toad down into the canyon for the day and walk around? Or is getting out of the car have some admission involved?? Thanks for heads up....

Why not spend the night , or 2. $24.00 +$4.00 a head per night ain't Disney Land. And the canyon sunsets have to be seen to be believed

One of our favorite places to camp. A lot cheaper than Disney)
Your going to have to pay a park entrance to drive in. Just like most state parks. Don't miss out on the camping experience, deer and wild turkey walking around in the camping area. Also take a hike out to Kings Castle, really a neat rock formation. It is a must see in Texas!!

When we found Palo Duro about four years ago I called it the neatest place I had never heard of.

I am sure it has changed a lot since the early 1960's but we used to tent camp there as teenagers many moons ago, and it was a really cool place. I can remember killing my first rattle snake, skinning it and cooking it over an open camp fire in Palo Duro Canyon. Memorable experience for a young teenager.

I do remember it was a pretty steep climb up and out but probably not an issue today. I haven't been there in years but let us know how what you think about it if you do go down and maybe we will give it a shot next time we are in Texas.

Homeless Palo Duro is not expensive at all as Okgc pointed out. You can camp in the canyon at the bottom of it, it is a fun ride down. I had my Jake on hi and the transmission in second and still had to constantly be on the brakes. Fortunately it is not for too long. Great trails to walk, bike or ride. A great place to visit.

I don't want to leave this thread with out letting everyone know we decided on Palo Duro East. Was great and only had to deal with two miles of ten present grade. And we where the only ones to camp on the western rim the night we where there. And also, two for one, if you have not experience Mackenzie Canyon. Its small but very impressive. But I must warn anyone trying the route we took it is very quiet and we where the only ones there.......Thanks for all the advice

Glad you enjoyed it. They have a party that runs during the summer that is supposed to be a lot off fun I have not been able to make out there during their season. They hold it in the canyon in a natural amphitheater
